World Cancer Day 2021
We are delighted to announce Cancer & Metabolism's first Impact Factor is 5.033!
Thank you to our Editors-in-Chief Dr. Michael Pollak and Dr. Matthew G. Vander Heiden for their hard work and to all those who support this journal.
The current Eigenfactor Score is 0.33812 and the Immediacy Index is 0.583.
Aims and scope
Cancer & Metabolism welcomes studies on all aspects of the relationship between cancer including molecular biology and genetics. The journal is indexed in DOAJ, Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI), PubMed, and PubMed Central.
Dr. Michael Pollak, co-Editor-in-Chief
Dr. Pollak is an internationally recognized expert in cancer endocrinology at the Lady Davis Institute for Medical Research of McGill University and a clinical oncologist at the Jewish General Hospital, Quebec, Canada.
"Cancer & Metabolism will provide a forum for rapid dissemination of research findings concerning metabolic factors that influence cancer risk and cancer pathophysiology, and cancer treatment. The scope of the Journal will allow for an interdisciplinary readership including cancer biologists, endocrinologists, oncologists, clinical trialists and population scientists."
Dr. Matthew G. Vander Heiden, co-Editor-in-Chief
Dr. Vander Heiden is Associate Director at the Koch Institute for Integrative Cancer Research at MIT. Extensively published in over 140 peer reviewed articles and book chapters, his research interests focus on the metabolic processes of cancer cells, including how glucose metabolism affects tumor growth and how these studies may lead to new developments in targeted cancer therapy. A renowned innovative researcher in his field, Dr. Vander Heiden received the 2017 Philip A. Sharp Innovation in Collaboration Award from Stand Up to Cancer (SU2C).

2019 Article Collection: Breast Cancer and Metabolism
The biology of tumor cells in breast cancer is complex and relatively unexplored. Cancer & Metabolism is excited to present the following article highlights that identify novel biomarkers and metabolic profiles of different breast cancer subtypes.
Chi Van Dang, Editor Emeritus
Chi Dang is a professor, physician-researcher, renowned cancer biologist and hematologist-oncologist, who serves as director of the Abramson Cancer Center at the University of Pennsylvania.
"After several decades of profound advances in our understanding of the genetics and molecular biology of cancer, it has become self-evident that metabolism and bioenergetics are regulated by cancer genes and are intimately linked to the growth and survival of cancer cells. The obesity pandemic connected to increased cancer risk further underscore the importance of a richer understanding of cancer and organismal metabolism. In this regard, Cancer & Metabolism is launched uniquely to fulfill the needs of a burgeoning field which is at the crossroads of many scientific disciplines."
Impact of COVID-19
As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our usual peer review process. We thank referees for their continued support in these challenging times and ask authors for their patience and understanding.
