About the journal

Cover image - Preventive Oncology & Epidemiology

Preventive Oncology & Epidemiology is an online, open access, international journal publishing original research, reviews, commentaries and study protocols across all areas of cancer epidemiology and prevention.

Cancer epidemiology is defined as the study of the distribution and determinants of cancer(s), allowing researchers to ascertain the possible trends and causes of cancer development amongst different populations. Cancer prevention focuses on identifying possible candidates for preventing cancer and testing interventions to reduce the risk of developing cancer. This includes behavioral factors (for example, diet, exercise, obesity prevention, sun protection, and tobacco use), chemoprevention, the use of vaccines, and the uptake of cancer screening/early detection tests. Furthermore, cancer prevention includes intervention research (patient navigation, computer-aided reminders, clinic and provider-based programs for example), as well as the validation and use of early detection tests and biomarkers. Promoting collaboration across all disciplines, from nutrition to cancer health policy, Preventive Oncology & Epidemiology is the home for researchers dedicated to advancing innovations within cancer epidemiology and prevention.

Topics covered include, but are not limited to:

  • Research focusing on early detection strategies, such as screening programmes, as well as the identification/validation of novel biomarkers that could lead to the creation of innovative early detection diagnostics;
  • The implementation of interventions and programmes at a community, state, or country level. The journal also wishes to highlight the barriers associated with implementing community health interventions and the unique challenges impacting underserved and minority populations and different settings;
  • The implications of state or country health policies on cancer epidemiology and prevention efforts;
  • Research focusing on geographical variations and trends in cancer distribution, within and between populations, at the state or country level;
  • and Community education and engagement strategies to raise awareness of lifestyle risk factors, prevention, and early detection strategies.
