Complete publisher's announcement

The following announcement by Elsevier is republished here with permission:

Elsevier would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge the significant and important contribution that ISPO has made to the scientific and medical community. The Society was founded in 1976 by Professor Herbert E. Nieburgs and a group of associates to study the interactive etiologic factors in cancer development and their impact on prevention, detection and management of neoplastic diseases. Cancer Detection & Prevention was established as the official journal of ISPO, publishing original research and review articles in the field of predictive and preventive oncology. Under the leadership of Professor Nieburgs the journal has become an international publication with an Impact Factor and coverage in PubMed/Medline.

The journal will undergo a period of transition as the Editorial Office re-locates to Europe and a new Editorial Team is appointed. Please direct any enquiries regarding Cancer Detection & Prevention as listed below:
