Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention publishes original peer-reviewed, population-based research on cancer etiology, prevention, surveillance, and survivorship. The following topics are of special interest: descriptive, analytical, and molecular epidemiology; biomarkers including assay development, validation, and application; chemoprevention and other types of prevention research in the context of descriptive and observational studies; the role of behavioral factors in cancer etiology and prevention; survivorship studies; risk factors; and the science of cancer health disparities. Besides welcoming manuscripts that address individual subjects in any of the relevant disciplines, CEBP editors encourage the submission of manuscripts with a transdisciplinary approach.

Cancer Immunology Research publishes outstanding original articles reporting major advances in cancer immunology that span the discipline from basic investigations in host-tumor interactions to developmental therapeutics in model systems, early translational studies in patients, and late-stage clinical trials. The journal disseminates knowledge of immunology to the cancer research community, catalyzing cross-disciplinary work that yields a deeper understanding of the host-tumor relationship, more potent cancer treatments, and improved clinical outcomes.

Papers are stringently reviewed, and specific topics of interest include endogenous antitumor immunity, tumor-promoting inflammation, cancer antigens, vaccines, antibodies, cellular therapy, cytokines, immune regulation, immune suppression, immunomodulatory effects of cancer treatment, emerging technologies, and clinical investigations. The journal's special features include "Masters of Immunology"—primers by leading immunologists—and "Cancer Immunology at the Crossroads"—perspectives that highlight the intersection of immunology with other areas of cancer research and allied disciplines.

Cancer Prevention Research is devoted exclusively to cancer prevention. The Journal publishes important original studies, reviews, and perspectives within the major topic areas of biology of premalignancy, risk factors and risk assessment, early detection research, immunoprevention, and chemopreventive and other interventions, including the basic science behind them. Cancer Prevention Research comprises preclinical, clinical, and translational research, with special attention given to molecular discoveries and an emphasis on building a translational bridge between the basic and clinical sciences.

Cancer Research publishes impactful original studies, reviews, and opinion pieces of high significance to the broad cancer research community. Cancer Research seeks manuscripts that offer conceptual or technological advances leading to basic and translational insights into cancer biology. Manuscripts that focus on convergence science, the bridging of two or more distinct areas of cancer research, are of particular interest. The main scope of the journal is captured in its primary subsections: Cancer Biology, Cancer Immunology, Cancer Metabolism and Molecular Mechanisms, Therapeutic Development and Chemical Biology, Translational Cancer Biology, Cancer Landscapes, Computational Cancer Biology and Technology, and Convergence Science.

Clinical Cancer Research — A Journal of Clinical and Translational Research — focuses on innovative clinical research and translational research that bridges the laboratory and the clinic. Clinical Cancer Research presents clinical trials evaluating new treatments for cancer; research on molecular abnormalities that predict incidence, response to therapy, and outcome; and laboratory studies of new drugs and biomarkers that will lead to clinical trials in patients.

Molecular Cancer Research publishes articles describing novel basic cancer research discoveries of broad interest to the field. Studies must be of demonstrated significance, and the Journal prioritizes analyses performed at the molecular and cellular level that reveal novel mechanistic insight into pathways and processes linked to cancer risk, development, and/or progression. Areas of emphasis include all cancer-associated pathways (including cell-cycle regulation; cell death; chromatin regulation; DNA damage and repair; gene and RNA regulation; genomics; oncogenes and tumor suppressors; and signal transduction), in addition to studies describing new molecular mechanisms and interactions that support cancer phenotypes. For full consideration, primary research submissions must provide significant novel insight into existing pathway functions or address new hypotheses associated with cancer-relevant biologic questions.

Molecular Cancer Therapeutics — Integrating Targets, Therapeutics, and Technologies — strives to be the top choice for publishing the best science in the discovery and preclinical development of novel therapeutic agents for oncology, preclinical studies of approved therapeutics, mechanisms of drug action, mechanisms of drug resistance, biomarkers of drug response, novel models and technologies, and occasional drug toxicity mechanisms. While the Journal's main focus is on small molecule and protein drugs, other molecular entities may be considered.
