Aims and Scope


World Cancer Research Journal (WCRJ – ISSN 2372-3416) is an open access international, peer-reviewed Journal that considers high-quality articles on novel aspects of cancer research. The Journal welcomes submissions concerning the molecular and cell biology of cancer, oncogenes, carcinogenesis, virus and cancer, immunotherapy, complementary and alternative medicine (CAM), cancer survivors, cancer rehabilitation, human nutrition and lifestyle and cancer and pollution and cancer. Particular attention will be given to research articles from emerging Countries.

WCRJ publishes reviews, original research papers, short communications and case reports of particular interest. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their results in as much detail as possible. There is no restriction on the length of the papers. The full experimental details must be provided so that the results can be reproduced.

WCRJ will consider manuscripts for publication that provide novel insights into the impacts of cancer on human health. This includes manuscripts describing the outcomes that have relevance to human health.

If authors are unsure whether their manuscript falls within scope for consideration for publication in WCRJ they should contact the journal by email ( for an opinion prior to submission.



Consequently, the scope of the Journal is to inform the scientific community about all innovative aspects regarding cancer disease.

WCRJ is divided into different interest areas coordinated by a senior editor.

Manuscripts are revised by three or more field experts and, once accepted, are published expeditiously. Indeed, starting from 2019, WCRJ has moved to a continuous publication model, with articles being published on an ongoing basis.

Articles are posted online as soon as they have completed the production process in a fully citable form associated with a universal digital object identifier(DOI). All full-text articles published in WCRJ are freely available to readers.
