ALEXANDRIA, VaThe Journal of Clinical Oncology (JCO) has doubled the number of issues it publishes each year, but not the number of articles it will accept. The JCO, a publication of the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO), now publishes two issues monthly, one mailed in the middle and the other at the end of the month.
Increasing the journals publication frequency will shorten the time between the acceptance and publication of studies. However, the number of articles published will remain the same. Were halving the size of the journal to make it more portable and easier for subscribers to read cover to cover, said editor George P. Canellos, MD.
