Access the journal

The journal will publish innovative research that provides actionable insights from real-world data sources and digital devices, such as generalisable observational and health services research, clinical informatics solutions, algorithm-powered diagnostics, and decision support systems and direct-to-patient mobile applications.

Main focuses of interest include: disease characterisation, rare and under-represented populations in clinical trials, head-to-head comparative effectiveness, unmet needs and gaps in access or care delivery, resource utilisation and health economics, post-marketing treatment optimisation and tolerability and patients' outcomes and preferences. In addition, studies that evaluate the net benefit of incorporating artificial intelligence applications in clinical practice, or explore how the human aspect of medicine, relations between patient and physician, may be affected by the increasing use of technology in routine practice.

With an international editorial board of experts and key opinion leaders, the journal will support multiple stakeholders as they engage with digital solutions and information systems to solve complex cancer problems. Providing essential reading for all stakeholders we will publish original research, reviews, editorials, perspectives, correspondence, and news.

The journal will provide balanced implementation guidance, training, and resources to ensure appropriate use of real-world data and digital technologies, at the highest methodological standards. ESMO Real World Data and Digital Oncology aims to operate a fast submission process with continuous publication online, to ensure that timely, up-to-date research is available worldwide and adheres to a rigorous and transparent peer review process.
