World-class research. Ultimate impact.
More on impact ›
While the primary role of every Doctor/Surgeon remains to treat those with ailments we also have a responsibility to teach. It is to this end that we wish to explore not only the scientific and clinical data in the field of Surgical Oncology but also to report the increasing advances in surgical techniques that Surgeons continue to update and evolve to provide their patients with the best care. Surgical innovation in the 21st century is moving at an incredible pace. The timely publication of such advances is essential to all practicing surgeons.
The Surgical Oncology Section of the Journal aims to publish impact of surgical techniques on, morbidity, mortality, duration of hospitalization as well as health economics. Innovative surgical techniques and their impact on patients’ quality of life are also of interest to this Section.
While papers on classical surgical techniques are welcome, we are especially interested, but not limited to: minimally invasive surgery, and robotic surgical techniques applied to all areas of Cancer but specifically Hepatopancreatobiliary, Oesophagogastric, Sarcoma and Transplantation. We also welcome basic science research involving surgical techniques.

Surgical Oncology welcomes submissions of the following article types: Case Report, Clinical Trial, Correction, Editorial, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Surgical Oncology, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Surgical Oncology will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Oncology and Surgery.
