Gallbladder cancer is infrequent and aggressive, with poor prognosis.In total, 18,124 cases of gallbladder cancer comprised 1.4% of all gastrointestinal cancers during the examined years, with 71% of cases in females.We will do our utmost to judge research objectively on its own merits and to avoid favoring research, for example, from particular institutions, countries, or regions.Key characteristics of the journal’s review process are: • All research articles submitted directly to the Journal are initially evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief; articles found appropriate for the Journal will be reviewed by at least two suitably qualified experts.As part of our commitment to speed of publication, and in order to reduce strain on the peer-review system, we have set-up a mechanism to allow a select group of prestigious partner journals to refer high-quality manuscripts to Cancer Medicine, along with any existing peer-review reports, when these journals are not themselves able to accommodate the manuscripts (for example, on grounds of scope or space).For such manuscripts that have existing peer-review reports, our Editor-in-Chief is able to decide whether or not a manuscript is suitable for publication particularly quickly.
We aim to be a truly global forum for high-quality cancer research, and we think that the best research should be published and made widely accessible as quickly as possible.
Peer review policy Cancer Medicine maintains the highest standards of peer review while increasing the efficiency of the process.
All research articles published in the journal will undergo full peer review, and we pursue editorial approaches that may help us avoid bias.
Authors also grant any third party the right to use the article freely as long as its integrity is maintained and its original authors, citation details and publisher are identified.
