Cancer Forum provides an avenue for communication between all those involved in the fight against cancer and especially seeks to promote contact across disciplinary barriers.
To this end articles need to be comprehensible to as wide a section of the readership as possible. Authors should provide sufficient introductory material to place their articles in context for those outside their field of specialisation.
Cancer Forum welcomes original articles about medical, scientific, political, social, educational and administrative aspects of cancer control. All manuscripts should be submitted by email to firstname.lastname@example.org as MS Word documents.
Length: 2000-2500 words
Font: Arial - 20pt for title, 12 pt for headings and 10pt for text.
Following the title, include your full name, organisation and email address.
Include an introductory heading and sub-headings that describe the content.
Number pages in the footer.
All manuscripts must include an abstract of approximately 200 words, providing a summary of the key findings or statements.
Photographs and line drawings can be submitted via email or on disk, preferably in tiff or jpeg format, or as transparencies or high quality prints.
If images are not owned by the author, written permission to reproduce the images should be provided with the submission.
Reference numbers within the text should be superscripted and placed after punctuation.
The list of references at the end of the paper should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they are first mentioned and be consistent with the National Library of Medicine's International Committee of Medical Journal Editors' Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals.
