The mission of Advances in Radiation Oncology is to provide original clinical research aimed at improving the lives of people living with cancer and other diseases treated with radiation therapy. Edited by Robert C. Miller, MD, MBA, of the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota, and Jacksonville, Florida, the purpose of this journal is to provide information for clinicians who use radiation therapy.
Advances is the sister publication of the International Journal of Radiation Oncology•Biology•Physics and Practical Radiation Oncology. As such, it aims to complement the research in those two journals. As a sister publication, authors who submit to the Red Journal and PRO but are deemed out of scope, will have the option of having their work “cascaded” to Advances with any attached reviews. Authors have the choice to accept or reject this recommendation. It is it done as a courtesy to the authors to avoid spending more time on formatting and navigating the submission portal.
Advances is a gold open access journal, meaning authors, readers and patients all have free access to all research published in the journal. All work published by this journal is thoroughly peer reviewed by the editorial board and expert reviewers in radiation oncology. Unlike traditional journals, authors retain copyright of their articles. This allows readers to freely and easily share information. Advances only accepts about 50 percent of work submitted.
