Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Tremendous improvements in the probability of long-term survival in children newly diagnosed with cancer have allowed for an increased focus on minimizing both the acute toxicities and the long-term sequelae (late effects) of cancer therapies. The focus of research in these areas has expanded from efforts to document the risks of acute and late effect, to exploring methods to identify those children at greatest risk, and to prevent or minimize the risks for toxicity. This special issue of Children will serve as a forum for discussion of the latest research in symptom management and detection/prevention of late effects. Both reviews and original research publications will be considered for publication. Examples could include manuscripts that discuss acute toxicities such as infection, mucositis and emesis, or late effects such as cardiac toxicity, neurocognitive deficits and hearing loss.

We look forward to receiving your contributions.

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 refereed through a peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page.
