I am writing to let you know about the launch of a new journal pertinent to our work. 'Veterinary Oncology’ is part of the BMC series from Springer Nature. It is an open access peer reviewed journal; a number of APC fee waivers are available over the next couple of years.
Veterinary Oncology will cover all aspects of cancer research and clinical management in veterinary medicine. It will focus on the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of cancer in various animal species, including dogs, cats, horses, food animals, wildlife and exotic/zoo animals. The journal will welcome original research articles, reviews, and case reports that contribute to advancing knowledge in veterinary oncology. Topics of interest include cancer biology, tumour pathogenesis, novel therapies, diagnostic techniques and palliative care. High welfare and ethical standards are expected in all submitted work and all relevant legislation and professional guidelines should’ve been followed.
The Co-Editor-in-Chief Amy LeBlanc and David Killick hope you will be excited by the addition of a new journal focussed on veterinary oncology and look forward to hearing from colleagues interested in publishing in the journal.
