The science and practice of oncology is a rapidly developing field. It has become increasingly interdisciplinary through the recognition of the efficacy of combination treatments and multidisciplinary teams.  New areas like oncoplastics have been born over the last two decades and risen sharply in both research output and what they mean for approaches to solving complex problems with patients.  Similarly advances continue to be made in surgical, medical and radiation oncology.  Some cancer therapies are also shifting from a tissue-specific focus to an oncogenetic pathway specific one.  Developments in these new paradigms have a long way to go and it is a critical time for the field. Both patient volume and research in this field are increasing rapidly as are diagnostic and prognostic tests, targeted treatments and new practice patterns.

IJS Oncology is a peer-reviewed, international, open access journal seeking to publish in the broad field of oncology, including surgical, medical and radiation oncology. The Journal aims to publish basic science, educational, clinical and translational research articles.  We aim to provide rapid submission to decision times whilst maintaining a high quality peer-review process.
