The Journal of Cancer Survivorship is seeking submissions for an upcoming special section  

“Cancer Survivorship – Lessons from the Clinic”

The aim of this multidisciplinary journal is to provide a global forum for new knowledge related to cancer survivorship. This special section aims to focus on the health care delivery for cancer survivors in diverse settings. Comprehensive care for cancer survivors includes a focus on (1) prevention and surveillance for recurrence and new cancers; (2) surveillance and management of physical effects of cancer and its treatment; (3) surveillance and management of psychosocial effects; (4) surveillance and management of chronic medical conditions; (5) health promotion and disease prevention. Across all of these domains, communication and care coordination play an important role. There has been much interest in defining optimal models of cancer survivorship care, though empiric evidence in this area is lacking. As new interventions are being investigated, cancer survivorship care is currently being delivered across clinical settings in the United States and internationally.
In this special section of the Journal of Cancer Survivorship, we would like to provide a forum to highlight innovative approaches being used to provide quality, comprehensive clinical care to cancer survivors. We are seeking concise, focused reports that include descriptions of clinical observations and/or interventions that provide insights into the clinical care of cancer survivors. (See Guidelines).
Suggested topics may include the following:
- Models of cancer survivorship care (e.g. within an academic medical practice, community setting, oncology/primary care setting, and/or provided by nursing or other health care professionals)
- Methods being used to promote communication and care coordination between oncology and primary care, including transition of care
- Cancer survivorship care programs being supported by health insurance providers/managed care programs
- Programs or initiatives led by state cancer control organizations that have been successfully translated into clinical settings
- Cancer survivorship care delivered using novel approaches, such as with the use of telehealth or tele-monitoring
- Clinical settings with demonstrated successful use of electronic medical records to promote quality cancer survivorship care
- Clinical educational programs in cancer survivorship for students, trainees and/or clinicians
- Programs set up to monitor and manage clinical symptoms/diagnoses that may be related to newer therapies (e.g. immune checkpoint inhibitors, chimeric antigen receptor therapy (CAR-T), etc.)
- Approaches being used to monitor and mitigate clinical symptoms and functional outcomes among survivors
- Efforts that facilitate successful transition of survivors to physician and non-physician providers within the community or within the academic medical center setting
- Programs that successfully integrate self-management in providing cancer survivorship care
Submissions due by July 15, 2019.
Online publication expected in the early 2020, print publication in spring 2020.
Guidelines for submission are described below.

“Cancer Survivorship – Lessons from the Clinic”
Guidelines for Submission
For this section only, we are seeking brief, focused reports that include descriptions of clinical observations, programs and/or interventions that provide clinical insights into the care of cancer survivors. Cover letters must indicate that the manuscript is being submitted for this special section. Manuscripts are limited to 1500 words of text, 10 references, and up to 2 tables or figures. The text should include an (1) introduction with a timely literature review, (2) description of the clinical observation (case reports acceptable), program and/or intervention, (3) concise presentation of the results and/or program evaluation, and a (4) detailed discussion about how the information presented will help to advance the provision of high-quality cancer survivorship care. An unstructured abstract (no more than 250 words) and 3 key terms using MESH categories should be included.

    Aims and Scope


    Cancer survivorship is a worldwide concern. The aim of this multidisciplinary journal is to provide a global forum for new knowledge related to cancer survivorship. The journal publishes peer-reviewed papers relevant to improving the understanding, prevention, and management of the multiple areas related to cancer survivorship that can affect quality of care, access to care, longevity, and quality of life. It is a forum for research on humans (both laboratory and clinical), clinical studies, systematic and meta-analytic literature reviews, policy studies, and in rare situations case studies as long as they provide a new observation that should be followed up on to improve outcomes related to cancer survivors. Published articles represent a broad range of fields including oncology, primary care, physical medicine and rehabilitation, many other medical and nursing specialties, nursing, health services research, physical and occupational therapy, public health, behavioral medicine, psychology, social work, evidence-based policy, health economics, biobehavioral mechanisms, and qualitative analyses. The journal focuses exclusively on adult cancer survivors, young adult cancer survivors, and childhood cancer survivors who are young adults. Submissions must target those diagnosed with and treated for cancer.
