The first issue of World Journal of Clinical Oncology (WJCO), whose preparatory work was initiated on December 20, 2009, will be published on November 10, 2010. The WJCO Editorial Board has now been established and consists of 315 distinguished experts from 33 countries. Our purpose of launching WJCO is to publish peer-reviewed, high-quality articles via an open-access online publishing model, thereby acting as a platform for communication between peers and the wider public, and maximizing the benefits to editorial board members, authors and readers.
