ecancermedicalscience is an open access cancer journal focused on under-resourced communities. In order to help reduce global inequalities in cancer care and treatment, we provide free access to all articles from the point of publication and we only charge authors who have specific funding to cover publication costs.
The journal considers articles on all aspects of research relating to cancer, including molecular biology, genetics, pathophysiology, epidemiology, clinical reports, controlled trials (in particular if they are independent or publicly funded trials), health systems, cancer policy and regulatory aspects of cancer care.
Cultural traditions and modern healthcare align in this special issue focusing on palliative care in Africa. Five original articles from on-the-ground experts, and an editorial by Nobel Peace Prize nominee Professor Anne Merriman, highlight the multiple angles of this complex topic.Read the full editorial
