AACR Cancer Progress Report

The annual AACR Cancer Progress Report is a comprehensive tool that illustrates the nation's return on investments in cancer research.

The report is an educational document for both Congress and the public. It is a call to action, designed to urge Congress and the American public to stand firm in their commitment to the eradication of cancer.

The AACR Cancer Progress Report 2016 details how federal investments in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the National Cancer Institute (NCI) transform lives by fueling advances against cancer. The report also calls on the administration and Congress to prioritize the growth of the NIH and NCI budgets at a predictable and robust pace.

Peer-Reviewed Journals

As part of the AACR's mission to accelerate the growth and spread of new research findings among scientists, it publishes a portfolio of highly ranked, peer-reviewed journals that present leading research articles: Cancer Discovery, Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention, Cancer Prevention Research, Cancer Research, Clinical Cancer Research, Molecular Cancer Research, and Molecular Cancer Therapeutics, and Cancer Immunology Research.

The AACR's scientific breadth and excellence continue to attract the premier researchers in the field, and the AACR journals rank in the top 30 percent of oncology journals with regard to a key publishing metric, the Impact Factor, in the latest Thomson Reuters' Journal Citation Report (2014).
