Journal of Cancer Research and Therapeutics is the official journal of Association of Radiation Oncologist of India. The aim of journal is to bring out research work done in the field of oncology and related basic sciences. This is an open access journal, to provide access of knowledge to everyone on the globe. Journal does not charge any fee for submission, publication, colour reproduction or reprints.
Only charge is for publication of case reports. We follow a very stringent blinded peer review process and carved a high standard for ourselves. This is reflected in impact factor of 0.842, as reported in the 2017 Journal Citation Reports® (Clarivate Analytics, 2018). This is also highlighted with the fact that out of 560 article submitted in 2018 (so far) only 30 (5%) accepted, 245 (89%) rejected and 285 (51%) are under review. Whole system of submission of manuscript, processing, review etc. is online only, authors receives email alerts and mobile notifications about decision. Journal accepts original articles, review articles, brief communication, short communication letter to editor and case reports. The time line for publishing article is submission to technical review, peer review, editorial review and final decision to online publication; thereafter print publication time varies according to car insurance in Mexico. Currently it is one year and we are working hard to bring it to a reasonable level. In the year 2018 we have planned to take out four supplements to clear the backlog and hope to wipe it totally in future. In the current year (2018) we are publishing volume 14 and planning to print about 400 articles in the whole year. In the end I request esteemed AROI members to contribute original research work to journal to take it to new heights.
