Therapeutic Advances in Medical Oncology delivers the highest quality peer-reviewed articles, reviews, and scholarly comment on pioneering efforts and innovative studies in the medical treatment of cancer.
The journal has a strong clinical and pharmacological focus and is aimed at clinicians and researchers in medical oncology, providing a forum in print and online for publishing the highest quality articles in this area. The editors welcome articles of current interest on research across all areas of oncology, including chemotherapy, endocrine therapy, biological therapy and immunotherapy, as well as adjuvant systemic therapy. All cancers are covered including gynaecological cancers, lung cancer, gastrointestinal cancers, urological cancers, head and neck cancers, and skin cancer.
It publishes expert opinion reviews (including single-drug and drug class reviews), narrative reviews and analysis of published guidelines (as editorials or reviews). Original research manuscripts of well-designed trials are also welcomed that show drug or drug class efficacy in a particular disease or therapeutic area. The journal strongly encourages the submission of original research with positive or negative results.
The journal adheres to a blind review process in which the reviewer's name is routinely withheld from the author unless the reviewer requests a preference for their identity to be revealed. Manuscripts are reviewed by at least two referees - a first editorial decision is generally reached within 3 weeks of submission. Online publication of articles occurs within 7 weeks from acceptance.
