International Journal of Cancer Therapy and Oncology


International Journal of Cancer Therapy and Oncology (IJCTO) is an international open access, interdisciplinary peer-reviewed journal. The journal publishes original research, reviews, editorials, case analysis, and other material on a broad range of topics focused on clinical cancer research, providing a platform for clinicians and academicians to collaborate and share knowledge.

Authors are encouraged to submit complete unpublished and original works, including but not limited to the following fields: radiation oncology, medical physics, radiation therapy, medical dosimetry, medical oncology, cancer biology, nuclear medicine, cancer science and therapeutics, cancer detection and prevention, cancer nanotechnology, and clinical oncology.

****IJCTO does not currently charge any fees to the authors. All accepted articles will be published online in one week's time after the completion of final author proofread****

The views and opinions expressed in articles are those of the author/s and do not necessarily reflect the policies of the IJCTO.
------------------------------------------------------------ 

Recently, we have received a significant number of submissions on Case Reports. Since it is impossible to publish all the accepted Case Reports in the IJCTO, we have launched a new journal, which will primarily publish the Case Reports. We encourage authors to submit the Case Reports to the Journal of Case Reports in Oncology and Therapy (JCROT). The JCROT can be accessed by clicking: http://ejourpub.com/index.php/JCROT/index
