Rapid communications are suitable for the presentation of research that extends previously published research, including the reporting of additional controls and confirmatory results in other settings, as well as negative results, small-scale clinical studies, clinical audits and case series. Authors must clearly acknowledge any work upon which they are building, both published and unpublished.

Please note, Cancer & Metabolism publishes solicited reviews from time to time but rarely accepts unsolicited reviews. Any author considering submitting a review should contact  the Editors in advance.
