Manuscript types

Cancer Research Frontiers publishes the following manuscript types:

Research articles should contain original, substantive research that makes major contributions to the field. The report should contain the important methods used, significant findings, and discussion of evidence supporting the conclusions.

Short Communications (limited to 8 pages) are intended for presentation of noteworthy results of work in progress or technical advancements in brief form. The communications should not contain more than two tables or two figures and  are not to be divided into sections, except for a short summary of not more than 100 words, acknowledgements, and references. Short communications receive the same review as do research articles.

Reviews are summarized descriptions of recent findings and significant developments in a particular area of cancer research. Reviews could include critical assessments of novel technologies, evaluation of important subject advancement, elucidation of unresolved questions, and comparative analysis of previous works and future prospects. Details of the literature search methods should be provided, i.e. the databases searched (usually, Medline and at least one or two other databases), the search terms and inclusive dates, and any selectivity criteria imposed.

Case reports are concise descriptions of rare diseases, novel occurrences, unusual indications or symptoms of a disease, unreported studies, or unexpected events observed during the course of patient treatment. The reports may highlight new cases of an emerging disease or describe variations and associations with new diseases. Case reports also may emphasize the need for amendments to usual practices and approaches in the field.

Editorials reflect the opinions of editorial board members addressing issues of science, politics, or policy.

Letters to the editor are responses to, or substantial re-analysis of, a research article recently published in the journal. The letters may be a brief report or critical assessment of findings in the original research article. Usually, letters are not peer reviewed.

Perspectives and hypotheses are brief reviews (limited to 4 pages) on a topic in which opinion and comments are encouraged. The reviews are short articles outlining significant predictions of methods and possibilities that were not conducted before or a proposed phenomenon that should be tested. They also may be examinations of previous studies generating surprise to readers and providing logical explanation that propels further research.
