Aims and Scopes

Tumor Biology is a peer reviewed, international journal providing an open access forum for experimental and clinical cancer research. Tumor Biology covers all aspects of tumor markers, molecular biomarkers, tumor targeting, and mechanisms of tumor development and progression.
Specific topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Pathway analyses
  • Non-coding RNAs
  • Circulating tumor cells
  • Liquid biopsies
  • Exosomes
  • Epigenetics
  • Cancer stem cells
  • Tumor immunology and immunotherapy
  • Tumor microenvironment
  • Targeted therapies
  • Therapy resistance
  • Cancer genetics
  • Cancer risk screening

Studies in other areas of basic, clinical and translational cancer research are also considered in order to promote connections and discoveries across different disciplines.
The journal publishes original articles, reviews, commentaries and guidelines on tumor marker use. All submissions are subject to rigorous peer review and are selected on the basis of whether the research is sound and deserves publication.
Tumor Biology is the Official Journal of the International Society of Oncology and BioMarkers (ISOBM).
