Gastric Cancer, a joint official journal of the International Gastric Cancer Association and the Japanese Gastric Cancer Association, publishes significant studies related to stomach neoplasms. The journal welcomes original articles, case reports, short communications, and technical notes, which will be peer-reviewed by the editorial board. Letters to the Editor commenting on articles published in the journal or expressing views on topics concerning gastric cancer are also welcomed. Review articles are in principle solicited by the Editor. Meeting reports will include summaries of symposia or consensus achieved in the congresses of related associations.

  • COVID-19 and impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times.  Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
