There is no equivalent Spanish (nor Portuguese) cancer resource in Latin America, and neither is there a cancer journal that focuses on the special requirements and concerns of Latin America (Venezuela, Argentina, Belize, Brazil, Chile, Colombia, Costa Rica, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Guyana, Haiti, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua, Paraguay, Peru, Puerto Rico and Uruguay and the Caribbean islands). ecancer Latin America is unique therefore not only in access to reliable facts and advice, but in the easy video technology which will make its acceptance by lay people much more successful.
ecancerLatin America also boast a unique publishing model - free to publish articles, and no subscription charges. It has an editorial board expanded to include top experts from all LAC science, to facilitate easy access to life changing science and clinical practice relevant to oncology patients. It would also showcase the very best of the research coming out of the area. The journal is open to all cancer disciplines: Oncologists, Radiotherapists, Surgeons, Nurses Psychologists and Paramedics.
