The journal publishes important original studies, reviews, and perspectives within the major topic areas of biology of premalignancy, risk factors and risk assessment, early detection research, immunoprevention, and chemopreventive and other interventions, including the basic science behind them. Cancer Prevention Research comprises preclinical, clinical and translational research, with special attention given to molecular discoveries and an emphasis on building a translational bridge between the basic and clinical sciences.
Cancer Prevention Research welcomes submission of original research and review articles to the journal. For descriptions and length requirements of the article types available to submitting authors, see the journal’s Categories of Articles.
The AACR Journals all use a similar Editorial Process and adhere to the same overarching Editorial Policies, both of which are detailed in the Instructions for Authors. These instructions contain important guidelines on authorship, publishing ethics, availability of materials and data, and data analysis and reporting. Authors should be familiar with these instructions prior to submitting their work to the journal.
Manuscripts are stringently reviewed for high standards of scientific merit, and only those articles that report results of novel, timely, and broadly significant research are accepted for publication.
