    Professor Dr. Gabriel Kacso is the Head of Oncology-Radiotherapy Department of
    University of Medicine & Pharmacy “Iuliu Hatieganu” Cluj-Napoca, CMO and Chairman
    of International Scientific Board Amethyst Europe, past President of the Romanian
    Society of Radiotherapy and Medical Oncology, and Medical Director of Amethyst
    Dr. Mircea Dediu, Chief of Medical Oncology at Sanador Clinic in Bucharest has a
    vast experience in Medical Oncology and has been involved for more than two decades
    in dozens of clinical trials and has summarized the advancements in the field of oncology
    at more than one hundred conferences.
    Professor Dr. Ioana Berindan-Neagoe is the Scientific Director of Research Center
    for Functional Genomics, Biomedicine and Translational Medicine and Research Center
    in Advanced Medicine – Medfuture. She received the Ad Astra Prize in 2018 for the best
    scientist in Romania in Life Sciences. During the last ten years, she coordinated more
    than fifty research projects and she published more than three hundred scientific papers.
    Professor Dr. Ștefana Petrescu is the Director of the Biochemistry Institute in
    Bucharest. She has been granted the Emil Racoviță Award of the Romanian Academy
    for her work on tyrosinase folding in 2002. She has been the President of the Romanian
    Society of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology since 2010. She is also the Deputy-Editor
    of Molecular Life.
    Professor Diana Ionescu is a Clinical Professor of Pathology at the University of
    British Columbia, Medical Lead of Anatomic Pathology at BC Cancer in Vancouver, BC,
    and served as the residency program director for the Anatomic Pathology Residency
    Program. She is also the Canadian Anatomic and Molecular Pathology (CAMP) and

    and Cytology.
  2. Find a niche for your research
    Our journal provides a broad coverage from basic and translational research to clinical
    research including all types of hematologic malignancies and solid tumors. Therefore,
    the potential number of topics is unlimited and, if your data is solid and your ideas are
    well presented, we guarantee the publication of your article in our journal.
  1. Sharpen your ideas
    Committing your thoughts to paper will help you clarify them and, hopefully, advance
    your present and future research. Our editors and reviewers’ feedback may assist you to
    develop your arguments in the most effective ways, and, sometimes, you may benefit
    from a fresh and objective perspective of your work.
  2. Advance the area of your research
    Communicating your findings and ideas to a broad audience, will both help your
    colleagues and will contribute to advancing knowledge in the oncology area or subject of
    interest to you.
  3. Introduce novel frames
    Publishing your research may stimulate new understanding of biological processes, in
    general, and, malignant conditions, in particular. Overall, in the long run, your discoveries
    may improve the quality and duration of life of cancer patients.
  4. Zoom-out
    Describing your ideas and data in a clear and concise manner may help you put your
    research into a larger context and, at the same time, help you to better define your future
    research goals.
  5. Stay up-to-date
    The field of oncology changes extremely fast and it is important to stay up-to-date with
    the latest developments. In the process of writing an article, you may find out about recent
    advances that you may have not been aware of before. The prewriting research may also
    prevent duplication of efforts, both by you, through discovering other’s work, and by
    others, through discovering your work.
  6. Increase your visibility
    Publishing in a peer reviewed international journal will give your work and ideas visibility
    among your peers and other researchers in your field. It can also highlight key issues,
    important both to the academia and to the general public such as the Covid-19 epidemic,
    for example, which has been attracting a lot of attention in the last two years.
  7. Grow academically
    We are working hard towards indexing JMedRadOnc in PubMed and other databases
    and this will also benefit your future academic career. On your applications for academic
    appointments and promotions, as well as on grant applications, you may be required to
    list your publications in accredited journals, and, starting this process in an open access
    journal, is a plus. Also, down the road, after your study is completed, you may be required
    by funding agencies to publish your work in certain journals, as open access, and you
    can publish it with us.
  8. Publish with no fees
    Last but not the least, compared to many oncology journals available today,
    JMedRadOnc does not charge any publication or processing fee. The journal also
    provides free English editing if your article is accepted for publication.
    We welcome your suggestions, comments and, of course, your articles.
    Happy New Year and all the best in 2022!
