In February, JAMA Oncology joins the JAMA family of journals to address all aspects of medical, radiation, and surgical oncology and its subspecialties. The need for the journal stems from an increasing volume of work and innovative discoveries in cancer research as investigators strive to provide optimal care for the increasing numbers of patients diagnosed with cancer.
JAMA Oncology will be the 11th journal in the JAMA Network, which includes JAMA and 9 other specialty journals, and it will be the first new journal launched by the JAMA Network since 1999.
