Despite this, or perhaps partly as a result, âMolecular and Cellular Themes in Cancer Researchâ makes a major and timely contribution to the literature, which will be valued by all who have an interest in cancer, from basic science to diagnostic pathology. In recognition of the potential interest of this issue to a very broad audience, this publication is also being made available to non- subscribers as a free-standing title (for further details please refer to the Announcement at the front of this issue). It is a tribute to our Guest Editors that they were able to plan the content of this issue, to assemble such an outstanding team of contributors, and to persuade, topics and contributors for future issues (e-mail: A previous attempt2 to generate reader feedback resulted in only nine written communications; we hope that this Annual Review Issue and its implications may stimulate vox populi more powerfully than the rather more trivial matter of book reviews. In conclusion, we look forward to âMolecular and Cellular Themes in Cancer Researchâ and its annual successors earning the recognition they deserve, through the appreciation and citations of the Journalâs readers throughout the world. Your feedback will be very welcome. REFERENCES 1. Molecular and Cellular Themes in cancer research. J Pathol 1999; 187(1). 2. Who wants book reviews?

Review articles on selected topics are among the most popular items on the Journalâs monthly bill of fare, but the concept of an annual issue of the Journal devoted solely to invited reviews on a single major theme was first raised, and was warmly received, at a meeting of the Editorial Board in December 1997.
