Hematology & Medical Oncology is an open access journal with comprehensive peer review policy and a rapid publication process.  HMO is a novel journal that will focus on clinical as well as basic science research reports in hematology and oncology including all major types of malignancies, blood disorders, and experimental therapies. The contents of the journal also emphasize the growing importance of hematopoietic stem cell therapy for treatment of various benign and malignant hematologic disorders and certain solid tumors and also accept papers on clinical research with clinical trials, including investigator-initiated, NCI-sponsored and pharmaceutical industry sponsored phase I-III trials. Translational studies applying basic science to clinical issues are particularly welcomed.

HMO will feature original research, review papers, clinical studies, editorials, expert opinion and perspective papers, commentaries, case reports, brief reports and book reviews.
