It is my great pleasure and honor to announce that Applied Cancer Research entered a new phase and published its first articles in partnership with BioMed Central. Founded in 1975 as Acta Oncologica Brasileira and renamed in 2004 to its current title, the journal has always focused on clinical, surgical and translational research in the field of oncology and values multidisciplinary approaches.
Applied Cancer Research is the official journal of A.C. Camargo Cancer Center, one of the largest cancer hospital in Brazil. Founded in 1953 in São Paulo – the 4th largest city in the world – A.C. Camargo Cancer Center is also a distinguished research and education center in oncology and has partnerships with institutions such as MD Anderson Cancer Center and the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
The growing scientific output, as well as the excellence in patient care that A.C. Camargo Cancer Center has accomplished over the past years, have led the Center to the decision of internationalizing the journal. BioMed Central has been chosen for its pioneering experience in open access publishing in medicine and health sciences.
As a multidisciplinary journal, Applied Cancer Research considers for publication original manuscripts addressing genetics, genomics, pathology, diagnosis, treatment, patient care, and epidemiology. I invite you to submit original research and reviews as well as well exceptionally documented and educative case reports.
The journal editorial board comprises me as Editor-in-Chief, six Associate Editors, and an international group of 47 experts in the field of oncology . All manuscripts submitted to Applied Cancer Research will be peer-reviewed by one editor and at least two reviewers. The journal is a member of, and subscribes to the principles of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), a forum for editors and publishers to discuss all aspects of publication ethics. As a COPE member, we are expected to follow the Code of Conduct for Journal Editors .
JV is Editor-in-Chief of Applied Cancer Research and is consultant Pathologist at A.C. Camargo Cancer Center.
