About JCO

The Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO) is the single most credible, authoritative resource for disseminating significant clinical oncology research worldwide. In print and in electronic format, JCO publishes original research and reviews in breast cancer, gastrointestinal cancer, hematologic malignancies, molecular oncology, lung cancer, genitourinary cancer, head and neck cancer, pediatric oncology, neurooncology, supportive care and quality of life issues, prevention, and phase I and clinical pharmacology. Original Reports is the focus of the Journal, but it is enhanced by appropriately selected Editorials, Commentaries, Reviews, and other work that relate to the care of patients with cancer.

JCO�s readership comprises practicing clinical oncologists, researchers, students, individuals in training, and allied health professionals throughout the world.
