Journal of Proton Therapy, a new kid on the block, or not

Chee-Wai Cheng

Abstract


The Journal of Proton Therapy is a new kid on the block in the myriad of clinical oncology journals. However, this new kid on the block comprises of a group of experienced and dynamic practitioners in proton therapy on the editorial board. One of the concerns of potential contributors to a journal is the total length of time from receipt of a manuscript to its publication in the journal, if accepted.  Members of the editorial board will address this directly by ensuring that peer reviews will be completed in 3-6 weeks. Just as important as a fast turnaround time, the authorities in the relevant area of research in the review system are provided by the members of the editorial board and their selection of reviewers. The open access system adopted by the journal but with no processing and publication fee should encourage submission of research studies by authors who may otherwise worry about the burden of having to pay a substantial publication fee.
