Beginning in 2015, Wichtig Publishing Srl will publish Tumori Journal the official publication of the National Tumori Institute in Milan, Italy, founded in 1928 and a European center of excellence for oncological research.
Wichtig won the tender launched by the Institute in 2014 to select a new STM publishing partnership for the journal. This agreement will enable the journal to expand and strengthen its mission to stimulate advancements in oncology, focusing on experimental and clinical cancer research. The journal will continue to be affiliated with the main Italian oncological associations. Articles will be available on Wichtig’s online platform, as well as several databases that host Wichtig content including EBSCO, Ovid and others. Founded in 1911 by Professor Gaetano Fichera as Tumori, the Journal is one of the oldest oncology journals and it is published six times a year.
