World Cancer Day is an important means of spreading awareness of the disease that kills 8.8 million people a year worldwide. Unfortunately, cancer isn’t just one disease - there are hundreds of different cancers, some harder to treat than others. Experts have speculated that we could be just 5-10 years away from be able to effectively treat individual cancers, and fast-moving, ongoing research is crucial in the fight to achieve this. So in honour of World Cancer Day, we’ve highlighted some of the interesting oncology research published across our Dove Medical Press journals. These are all open access articles – free for all to read.
Additionally, one of our editorial board members in the Journal of Hepatocellular Carcinoma, Ashraf Omar Abdelaziz (Secretary General of the Egyptian Society of Liver Cancer and Professor of Hepatology and Endemic Medicine, Director of Multidisciplinary HCC clinic, Cairo University, Egypt) is taking part in the EASL HCC summit in Geneva from 2-5 February, and will today be presenting five posters about hepatocellular carcinoma. Follow the #HCCsummit hashtag on Twitter for the latest news on this.

The World Health Organization last week declared the Zika virus a global public health emergency. In light of this, and in order to facilitate researchers and clinicians involved in the Zika outbreak to rapidly report their experiences and findings, we are waiving all article processing charges (APCs) for Zika virus research published in Dove Medical Press journals.

Academic publishers are selective about the works they choose for publication. As you browse through the many research articles that have been published, you will notice that the arguments are well communicated, the findings are appropriately organized, and the overall messages are clearly written. What becomes apparent is that academic publishers tend to favor manuscripts written by native English-speakers, or by those who have mastered the intricacies of the English language well enough that they can clearly articulate their work. Why?

Gerontology is my passion. Understanding the aging process and how to really maximize on the advantages of aging (i.e., experience, wisdom, spirituality, life-long relationships) while minimizing some of the disadvantages (i.e., cognitive decline, depression and increased suicidal ideation, managing co-morbidities) really excited me as a researcher. That scientific pursuit in itself is enough to sustain any individual for a lifetime of scholarship and scientific inquiry. But as humans we are not always so linear in our thinking, and especially our behavior. We develop other interests and, over the course of time, if we are lucky, we have the opportunity to blend our interests and passions.
