Aims and scope

The Journal of Gastrointestinal Cancer is a peer-reviewed multidisciplinary journal dedicated to understanding and treating cancers arising in the gastrointestinal tract. It publishes clinical and translational research that aids in the multidisciplinary management of cancers affecting the esophagus, stomach, liver, gallbladder and biliary tree, pancreas, small bowel, colon, rectum, and anus. The journal also publishes original interdisciplinary research on gastrointestinal cancer epidemiology, prevention, diagnosis, technology, and survivorship. State-of-the-art reviews on topics of immediate interest and clinical importance are provided by experts in their field. Editorials, case reports, letters to the editor, and other special items of interest are frequently published. 

Note that basic science and pre-clinical studies are no longer accepted in the Journal of Gastrointestinal Cancer. The journal is supported by a large international editorial board with broad expertise in gastrointestinal cancer research. We aim for as rapid peer-review as possible and maintain a hybrid publishing model that allows traditional subscription-based or open access publishing. Pre-submission inquiries can be sent to the editor-in-chief.
