Bone tumors develop when cells within a bone divide uncontrollably, forming a lump or mass of abnormal tissue. Bone tumors can affect any bone in the body and develop in any part of the bone. A growing bone tumor destroys healthy tissue and weakens bone, making it more vulnerable to fracture. Primary bone cancers, including osteosarcoma, chondrosarcoma and Ewing’s sarcoma, begin in the bone. Secondary bone cancers, or bone metastases, begin somewhere else in the body (e.g., the breast, lung, prostate and thyroid) before metastasizing or spreading to bone. No cure exists for bone tumors. It is therefore crucial that we continue to research their pathogenesis and seek novel modes of therapy. We invite researchers to submit original research and review articles covering significant developments in the pathogenesis of bone tumors as well as novel medicines or strategies that hold promise in the prevention and/or treatment of this disease. In particular, we welcome research covering novel signaling pathways, signaling molecules, or discussions around bone tumor medications under development.

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. International Journal of Molecular Sciences is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. There is an Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal. For details about the APC please see here. 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.
