Breast Cancer Research now the leading breast cancer-specific oncology journal

The release of the 2009 Impact Factors has seen Breast Cancer Research become the top-ranked breast cancer-specific oncology journal with an Impact Factor of 5.33, and means that of 165 oncology journals, Breast Cancer Research is ranked 21st overall.

This move represents a significant milestone for the journal, which was launched in 1999, and is a reflection of the hard work of the international Editorial Board, led by Editor-in-Chief Professor Lewis Chodosh, University of Pennsylvania, USA. Breast Cancer Research, launched as a forum for translational research, has constantly evolved in order to reflect the changes in the field. Our scope has also expanded in this time to include articles of exceptional interest in all areas of biology and medicine relevant to breast cancer, including normal mammary gland biology, with a special emphasis on the genetic, biochemical, and cellular basis of breast cancer.
