25 Years of Advancing the Field of Surgical Oncology

This year Annals of Surgical Oncology (ASO) celebrates 25 years of supporting scientific research and education for the global cancer community. Four critical strategies were established at the onset that enabled the journal to grow to be the most cited surgical journal. Charles M. Balch, MD said, “I never imagined at the beginning that after 25 years Annals of Surgical Oncology would be one of the leading surgical journals in the world.”
