Call for Special Issue Topics

Over 2015 and 2016 there were two important Special (themed) Issues of Psycho-Oncology. Both were very successful in terms of capturing the 'zeitgest' of psycho-oncology and the high number of authors submitting papers to be considered for inclusion.

As Editors we wish to ensure that opportunities arise to present hot issues in our science and clinical work, as well as the integration of psycho-oncology into the broader cancer landscape.

To enable this we are inviting proposals for future themed issues that reflect controversies, important clinical developments and cutting edge science.

Submissions should include a summary, rationale for the proposed topic and a brief biosketch of the Guest Editor(s). The overall length of the summary should be no more than 500 words.

Proposals can be submitted to:

Closing date for submissions is 31st March 2017
