As an associate Editor-in-Chief of ATM, I am proud to say that the journal is very unique in its incorporation of several different formats and reader participation. Having had first-hand experience with the editorial team and office I can honestly say that all contact and interactions have been close, fluid and efficient. Thanks to its hard working editors and staff, the journal has a very high production rate, publishing many high quality articles every month.

The panel of contributing authors has been consistently excellent and the quality of the systematic reviews is always outstanding. The journal sits at the interface of disciplines as diverse as gastroenterology, medical oncology, radiation oncology, surgical oncology, tumor pathology and tumor biology; bringing people from different specialties together under one umbrella. This is all the more necessary when disciplines do not overlap in terms of researcher cross-training or vocabularies and terminologies.

Modern oncology care demands multi-disciplinary specialty approach. This approach is the gold standard for gastrointestinal oncology care in both academic and clinical settings. This journal embraces such a high standard and ideal by inviting field leaders as authors and guest editors to share their expertise and knowledge. In addition to its excellence in clinical coverage, the journal also emphasizes the importance of translational research and its practical application in optimizing patient management for both academicians and clinicians. The journal is a high-quality publication with a high citation record. It is invaluable to have a publication for readers to use as a resource for update-to-date information and ideas.
