Topical Collection in Cancers: Incorporating DNA Damage Response (DDR) Mechanisms in Cancer Systems
In this Special Issue, we would like to invite groups working on the role(s) of DNA damage and its repair induced by ionizing radiations as instigators of the full range of biological responses to radiation. Emphasis is given to advances offering mechanistic insights into the ability of radiations with different quality to severely impact cells or tissues. High-quality research or review studies on different species projecting to humans are welcome. Technical advances reporting on the methodologies to accurately measure DNA or other types of biological damage will be highly considered, too. Last but not least, clinical trials or protocols with improvements to radiation therapy and radiation protection are also included.Prof. Dr. Alexandros G. Georgakilas
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. Radiation is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
