Focus and Scope

Molecular Cancer Biology (MCB) journal publishes reviews, full length original research articles and short articles of immediate scientific significance related to all areas of cancer including cancer therapy. These areas include but not limited to the mechanisms of mammalian cell growth and differentiation, discovery of tumor suppressor genes, oncogenes, genetic and genomic instability, cell cycle regulation, angiogenesis, hypoxia and the molecular basis of metastasis. In addition, studies involving miRNA expression, gene expression, genome-wide and functional genomics approaches in at risk populations or in tumors or tumor stem cells are also welcomed. The overall aim of this journal is to publish high quality, high impact and innovative research articles in all areas of cancer research and cancer therapy.


Peer Review Process

Authors should provide name, address and current email address of five potential expert reviewers. All articles submitted to the MCB 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 MCB. 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.
