World Journal of Surgical Oncology (World J Surg Oncol )


World Journal of Surgical Oncology is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, online journal publishing articles related to surgical oncology and its allied subjects such as epidemiology, cancer research, biomarkers, prevention, pathology, radiology, cancer treatment, clinical trials, multimodality treatment and molecular biology. Emphasis is placed on original research articles and clinical case reports. The journal will also provide balanced, extensive and timely review articles on selected topics. World Journal of Surgical Oncology considers research in surgical oncology and related fields. Oncology is a multidisciplinary super-speciality of which surgical oncology forms an integral component, especially when it comes to solid tumours. It is a fast growing speciality. Surgical oncologists around the world are involved in research extending from detecting the mechanisms underlying causation of cancer, to its treatment and prevention. The role of a surgical oncologist also extends across the whole continuum of care. With continued developments in diagnosis and treatment, the role of a surgical oncologist is ever-changing. Hence, the journal aims to keep the new generation surgical oncologist abreast with latest developments in their field and in related fields that will ultimately influence the work of surgical oncologists. There are very few journals in the field of surgical oncology; these are available at a subscription that is beyond many, especially in developing and under developed countries. Moreover, there is no Open Access journal catering for surgical oncologists. As most of the journals are print journals with space constraints, there was a demand for a journal where one could publish without space constraints but with a wide readership. As the journal had global readership without any restriction it was aptly named as World Journal of Surgical Oncology with world-wide representation on the editorial board. To facilitate rapid publication and to minimize administrative costs, World Journal of Surgical Oncology accepts only online submission.
