The Oncologist

The Oncologist, a peer-reviewed monthly cancer medicine journal, is dedicated to translating the latest research developments in the best multidimensional care for cancer patients. Since its founding in 1996, the Journal has been committed to helping physicians excel in this challenging and ever-expanding environment.

We believe that the practice of oncology requires both an understanding of a range of disciplines encompassing basic science related to cancer, translational research, and clinical practice, and also the socioeconomic and psychosocial factors that determine access to care, quality of life and function following cancer treatment.

The Oncologist challenges its readers to understand what is new and better, and to glimpse the future, not only in terms of research, but also in terms of new team approaches to disease management. In short, we want our readers to explore how cancer medicine could be and will be practiced now and throughout the next decade.
