As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.
COVID-19 and impact on peer review
Cardio-Oncology is now indexed in PubMedCentral!
BMC and the Editorial Board of Cardio-Oncology are pleased to announce that the journal is now indexed in PubMedCentral. The journal has passed the rigorous evaluation required for a journal to be included in this index. All articles published in Cardio-Oncology will now be archived and searchable through PMC and PubMed.
This would not have been possible without the hard work of the editorial board, the expertise of our reviewers, and – of course – the excellent submissions from our authors.
Aims and scope
The editorial mission of Cardio-Oncology is to advance the science and practice of this emerging field to find a balance between oncologic efficacy and reducing adverse cardiovascular effects through timely publication and dissemination of peer-reviewed research. As an open access, online journal Cardio-Oncology provides a high visibility platform for the publication of original research and expert reviews on the cardiovascular effects of cancer treatment.
