Aims and scope

Breast Cancer Research and Treatment is an international arena for the discussion and resolution of ongoing controversies in breast cancer treatment, or for the consideration of thoughtful speculation and comments on current work.

Breast Cancer Research and Treatment provides the medical oncologist, surgeon, radiation oncologist, endocrinologist, epidemiologist, immunologist and cell biologist investigating problems in breast cancer, a single forum for communication. The journal is a "market-place" for breast cancer topics which cuts across all the usual lines of disciplines, providing a site for presenting pertinent investigations, and for discussing critical questions relevant to the entire field. It seeks to inform with perspectives for all those concerned with breast cancer.

Each issue contains articles dealing with original laboratory investigations and articles dealing with clinical and translational studies, invited review articles, meeting reports, and editorials. Letters to the editor are a way to engage in lively exchange of opinions on previously published articles or other topics of interest. There is also an opportunity to publish the proceedings of special workshops, symposia, etc., devoted to breast cancer.

All manuscripts are peer reviewed by a distinguished international group of advisory editors and reviewers covering all of the various disciplines of breast cancer.
