The goal of the Cancer Health Disparities (CHD) journal is to cover all aspects of disparities including social, cultural, behavioural, environmental, genetic and epigenetic determinants contributing to differences in cancer incidence, prevalence, death, survivorship, and burden of cancer that exist among different population around the world. The overall aim is to publish high quality, high impact and innovative research articles in all areas related to cancer health disparities.
CHD journal publishes case reports, multidisciplinary editorial, commentary, hypothesis, short and full length reviews, full length original clinical or basic science research articles and short articles of immediate scientific or clinical significance. These include disparities at the metabolic, molecular, genetic, epigenetic, physiological, clinical, diagnostic, prevention and therapeutic levels.
Peer Review Process
Authors should provide name, address and current email address of five potential expert reviewers. All articles submitted to the CHD are subjected to two-tier review using our online peer review system. The preliminary review is conducted by an editor to make sure article conforms to the requirements of journal and research area is appropriate for the CHD. The editor also ensures that article brings new scientific knowledge to the field. In the second stage of the review process, articles are assigned to expert reviewers from the field. Following feedback of reviewers, the editor makes the final decision on acceptance of the article.
