The Journal of Cancer Survivorship: Research and Practice publishes original research on cancer survivors, systematic and meta-analytic literature reviews, clinical investigations and policy-related research that can impact the quality of care and quality of life of cancer survivors. The journal publishes peer reviewed papers related to improving the understanding, prevention, and management of multiple areas related to cancer survivorship that can affect quality care, symptom management, function, and well-being.

The number of cancer survivors continue to increase worldwide. Along with this increase many individuals following primary treatment for cancers or many types experience a variety of long term and late effects. This journal considers cancer survivors as those following diagnosis and at completion of primary treatment. Research and practice of these cancer survivors is growing rapidly and dissemination of evidence -based information is essential for improved knowledge and care. Studies can include adolescents or adults treated for cancer as children, as well as young adults, adults, or older adults. The knowledge relates to those diagnosed and treated for cancer but now face challenges that can in part be related to cancer diagnosis and a range of treatment exposures.
