Call for Papers: Addressing global differences in HCC risk factors and management strategies

The Journal of Hepatocellular Carcinoma is encouraging papers addressing global diversity in HCC risk factors and their effect on outcomes. Although significant advances have been made in multidisciplinary and individualized screening and treatments for HCC, such sophisticated methods are relatively expensive and therefore remain beyond the reach of many patients in less economically developed countries where local resources and healthcare budget are limited. To address the global differences in treatment provision, the journal Editors are seeking to publish multidisciplinary clinical and translational studies, cost-effective screening and treatment strategies and consensus statements, including those which consider available local resources.
Authors interested in publishing country-specific guidelines and conference proceedings may be eligible for a discounted publication processing fee. Such requests will be assessed on a case-by-case basis. Please contact Dawn Hesson at dawnhesson@dovepress.co.uk with your query prior to submission. 

What is the advantage to you of publishing in the Journal of Hepatocellular Carcinoma?

  • It is an open access journal which means that your paper is available to anyone in the world to download for free directly from the Dove website.
  • Although the Journal of Hepatocellular Carcinoma receives a large number of papers, unlike many traditional journals, your paper will not be rejected due to lack of space. We are an electronic journal and there are no limits on the number or size of the papers we can publish.
  • The time from submission to a decision being made on a paper can, in many journals, take some months and this is very frustrating for authors. The Journal of Hepatocellular Carcinoma has a quicker turnaround time than this. Generally, peer review is complete within 4-7 weeks and the editor’s decision within 2-14 days of this. Therefore, your paper could potentially be peer-reviewed and finally accepted in 6-9 weeks.
  • Many authors have found that our peer reviewer’s comments substantially add to their final papers.

To recover our editorial and production costs and continue to provide our content at no cost to readers we charge authors or their institution a publication processing fee.
