Aims and scope

European Journal of Gynaecological Oncology (EJGO) is an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal. EJGO publishes on a broad range of gynaecologic oncology topics. Different types of articles are considered for publication (see Aims & Scope) with emphasis on original research to include prospective clinical trials, basic and applied science, case-control, and cohort studies. We also encouraged the submission of systematic reviews and meta-analyses.
