Women's Oncology Review: The Journal of Interdisciplinary Current Awareness
The Women's Oncology Review is a quarterly journal that focuses on those
scientific and clinical advances that impact on the care and management of
women with cancer, including both breast and gynecologic malignancies.
As there are hundreds of journals that contain articles relevant to issues
in women's oncology, for the busy clinician it can be difficult and
time-consuming to assess what is important - especially when articles fall
outside the reader's own specialty. The Women's Oncology Review is designed
to solve this problem by allowing the reader to remain up to date with
published research across the disciplines in an organized and efficient
manner. The journal will guide readers through the pluralism, fragmentation
and variety of the oncology and gynecology literature to the information
that has true and enduring value.
In each issue, the multidisciplinary team of Editors selects 40-50 of the
most important international studies published within the previous
three-month period. Each of these studies is summarized, evaluated with a
short, easy-to-read critical commentary, and placed in context with other
research by a suggested list of further reading. In this way readers can
rapidly access the cutting edge of research in a way that positively
contributes to their understanding of its significance and contributes
towards improvements in clinical practice.
The team of reviewers has been selected from among leading experts in the
specialities of gynaecologic oncology, clinical oncology, radiation
oncology, breast cancer, oncologic surgery, and basic sciences to provide
across-the-board coverage of women's oncology. With the ever-expanding focus
of cancer in the population, this important journal is an indispensable aid
for any clinician involved in the care of women with cancer.
Whilst the critical commentaries form the essential feature of the journal,
each issue also contains two or three of in-depth reviews of major topics to
provide a valuable perspective for clinicians.
