Focus and Scope

The Cancer Health Disparities (CHD) journal covers all aspects of disparities including social, cultural, behavioral, environmental, genetic, and epigenetic determinants contributing to differences in cancer incidence, prevalence, death, survivorship, and burden of cancer that exist among a 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 the name, address, and current email address of five potential expert reviewers. All articles submitted to the CHD are subjected to a two-tier review using our online peer review system. The preliminary review is conducted by an editor to make sure the article conforms to the requirements of the journal and research area is appropriate for the CHD. The editor also ensures that the 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 the feedback of reviewers, the editor makes the final decision on the acceptance of the article.
