International Journal of Gynecological Cancer

The International Journal of Gynecological Cancer  (IJGC) is the primary educational and informational publication for topics relevant to detection, prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gynecologic malignancies. Its content is read by gynecologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, radiologists, pathologists, and research scientists with a special interest in gynecological oncology. IJGC emphasizes a multidisciplinary approach and includes original research (clinical trials and translational or basic research), reviews, and video articles.

We recognize the importance of assuring that our journal represents the work and research being conducted in all regions of the world, and at the same time, that it also highlights key issues critical to patients not only in developed countries but also in low-resource countries.

The International Journal of Gynecological Cancer is the official publication of the International Gynecologic Cancer Society (IGCS) and the European Gynecologic Cancer Society (ESGO).
