With the extensive studies on cancers with various techniques, more and more mechanisms of tumorigenesis are disclosed in molecular levels. In the meantime, more and more molecule-based methods for cancer treatment are proposed, while large amount of studies are conducted for the evaluation of the current-used drugs and the development of new drugs. Moreover, many substances such as tumor markers, microRNAs are reported to be associated with tumor, which is very beneficial to the early diagnosis of cancers. Some biological events such as abnormal signal transduction pathways, tumor angiogenesis and DNA methylation have been better understood, which are a great help to study of cancers. In order to promote the rapid progress of researches on tumors, IJMS will publish a special issue on the topic of “Molecular Basis on Cancer Research”. Any achievements related to this topic are highly encouraged to be published in this special issue.

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. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as 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 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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by MDPI.
