  • Aims and Scope

    Aims and Scope


    This journal aims to review the most important, recently published clinical findings related to the diagnosis, treatment, management, and prevention of breast cancer. By providing clear, insightful, balanced contributions by international experts, the journal intends to serve all those involved in the care of those with the disease.

    We accomplish this aim by appointing international authorities to serve as Section Editors in key subject areas, such as prevention, systemic therapy, and translational research. Section Editors, in turn, select topics for which leading experts contribute comprehensive review articles that emphasize new developments and recently published papers of major importance, highlighted by annotated reference lists. An international Editorial Board reviews the annual table of contents, suggests articles of special interest to their country/region, and ensures that topics are current and include emerging research. Commentaries from well-known figures in the field are also provided.
