Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The Special Issue of Cancers will consist of selected papers from the “Joint 43rd European Radiation Research Society (ERRS) and 20th German Society for Biological Radiation Research (GBS) Annual Meetings”, taking place in Essen (Germany), on 17–21 September 2017. This international conference represents one of the major European events for the scientific community working on the biological effects of radiation exposures at the molecular, cellular and systemic levels. It encompasses several complementary fields including radiation biology, chemistry, physics and medicine. The meeting represents a unique opportunity for scientists from all over the world to gather and share their most recent results. Particular attention is devoted to translational aspects and novel strategies for clinical applications, together with a particular focus on fundamental mechanisms of radiation action. The selected papers will cover relevant and novel advances in the field, as they will emerge at the conference. This Special Issue aims to serve as a state-of-the-art overview of recent progress in the field.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Cancers is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 850 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
