When you choose to publish with PLOS, your research makes an impact. Make your work accessible to all, without restrictions, and accelerate scientific discovery with options like preprints and published peer review that make your work more Open.

Cancer Treatment and Research

Empowering a community publishing articles in all areas of Cancer Treatment and Research, including oncology, immunotherapy, cancer diagnostics, screening, cancer translational studies, and much more.

To date, PLOS has published over 13,738 articles in Cancer Treatment and Research, with more than 335,972 citations and with authors in 136 countries.

At PLOS, we put researchers and research first.

Our expert editorial boards collaborate with reviewers to provide accurate assessment that readers can trust. Authors have a choice of journals, publishing outputs, and tools to open their science to new audiences and get credit. We collaborate to make science, and the process of publishing science, fair, equitable, and accessible for the whole community.

Reproducibility is important for the future of science.

PLOS is Open so that everyone can read, share, and reuse the research we publish. Underlying our commitment to Open Science is our data availability policy which ensures every piece of your research is accessible and replicable. We also go beyond that, empowering authors to preregister their research, and publish protocols, negative and null results, and more.

How can we increase adoption of open research practices?

Researchers are satisfied with their ability to share their own research data but may struggle with accessing other researchers’ data. Therefore, to increase data sharing in a findable and accessible way, PLOS will focus on better integrating existing data repositories and promoting their benefits rather than creating new solutions.

Open Science is not a finish line, but rather a means to an end. An underlying goal behind the movement towards Open Science is to conduct and publish more reliable and thoroughly reported research.

Editors' picks

Here, PLOS ONE Staff Editors from the different subject teams reflect on the past year choosing some of their favorite research. From research on plastic pollution to improving prognosis predictions for patients with cancer, we hope that these selections will have something of interest for everyone.  

I come from a developing country and having Open Science is crucial for advancing as it will allow more talented individuals with unique ideas to move the field forward. In my opinion, this is crucial to progress.
