Emphasis is placed on original research articles. The journal also provides significant clinical case reports as well as balanced, extensive and timely review articles on selected topics.

    World Journal of Surgical Oncology covers research in surgical oncology and related fields. Oncology is a multidisciplinary super-speciality of which surgical oncology forms an integral component, especially with solid tumors. Surgical oncologists around the world are involved in research extending from detecting the mechanisms underlying the causation of cancer, to its treatment and prevention. The role of a surgical oncologist also extends across the whole continuum of care. With continued developments in diagnosis and treatment, the role of a surgical oncologist is ever-changing. Hence, the journal aims to keep the new generation surgical oncologist abreast with latest developments in their field and in related fields that will ultimately influence the work of surgical oncologists.
