It gives me a profound pleasure to welcome you to our new open-access journal, Journal of Natural Products in Cancer Prevention and Therapy (JNPCPT). The primary aim of JNPCPT is to establish and promote a collegial, research-based culture that welcomes the expertise of many topics pertained to natural products for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer.
JNPCPT will publish only rigorously peer-reviewed, high-quality foundational, translational, and clinical research on value of naturally-occurring agents in cancer prevention and management, as well as other related topics.
Although there are numerous journals on either cancer or natural products, a premier and specialty journal with sole focus on combining these two areas may not exist. This unmet need represents a catalyst for inception of our journal.
I encourage academicians, research scientists, medical doctors and health professionals around the world to publish new research data in this journal. The submitted manuscripts will be strictly reviewed in a timely and unbiased manner to ensure the rapid publication as well as optimum quality of each contribution.
I am fortunate to have tremendous support from highly efficient and acclaimed editorial board members, who will pre-select only high-quality and original work before the manuscripts are critically evaluated by at least two reviewers who are experts in the field of the journal. This will ensure that all published articles are of the highest quality as well as genuine contribution to literature.
We are doing our best to make this journal the most reliable resource for new knowledge on natural products in cancer prevention and therapy. We invite you to join us in this endeavor.
Journal of Natural Products in Cancer Prevention and Therapy is a newly launched peer reviewed, open access journal that publishes articles exhibiting advanced knowledge in the use of natural products for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer. The main focus will be in the areas of identifying novel natural compounds present in plants, animals and organisms from land, water and air for prevention, diagnosis and treatment of cancer, unraveling structure and function of such compounds, understanding the molecular mechanisms inherent to these compounds to prevent/treat cancer, safety/efficacy/cost studies in in vivo models to expand our understanding in the use of natural products for cancer prevention/therapy. Manuscripts describing studies on botanical extracts/fractions or compounds related to natural products (e.g., semi-synthetic analogs) are also appropriate for this journal. The Journal welcomes original research articles, reviews, short communications, case studies/reports and articles with novel techniques.
It is the journal policy to publish work deemed by peer reviewers to be a coherent and sound addition to existing scientific knowledge and to put less emphasis on interest levels, provided that the research constitutes a useful contribution to the field.
