Submit a manuscript

Peer review process: All articles published in the Journal are subject to an initial review by an Editor or the Editor-in-Chief. Subsequent to this initial review, manuscripts will either be rejected or two to three independent external peer reviewers will be invited for comment through a double-blind process. Some letters, editorials and commentaries may fall outside this review process if they were invited by the Editor. Authors submitting manuscripts to the Journal may propose suitable reviewers or oppose reviewers who may have competing interests. Manuscripts are accepted on the basis of scientific quality, originality, significance, novelty and interest to the readership of International Journal of Surgery: Oncology.  All papers must be reported in line with established reporting guidelines where they exist.  A paper that has been formally rejected, will not be reconsidered for publication in the Journal.
