SCOPE

Research estimates that the number of cancer cases has reached 17.2 million with 8.9 million of those cases resulting in death. Our expert Guest Editors are eager to create this Special Issue with the aim of helping the cancer research community to reduce the global mortality rate and develop areas in new technologies for early tumor detection, such as the detection of minimal residual disease.

Our panel of Guest Editors will consider high-quality translational and clinical studies, and prioritize research articles likely to inform clinical advances for patients.

RESEARCH TOPICS
I published with PLOS Medicine (i) to reach a broad audience of health professionals, and (ii) due to extremely high reputation of the journal among the researchers (including my colleagues and co-authors). The whole process from submission to publication was time-efficient, transparent, and, on each stage, well-supported by the PLOS Medicine editorial office.

I've had an incredibly positive experience working with PLOS Medicine. I've found the communications to be clear and informative, the editorial staff to be efficient and helpful, and the review process to be constructive and transparent. I'll definitely be submitting my work here again in the future and will also be recommending the journal to colleagues.
