PHILADELPHIA (August 7, 2018) – Anthony J. Olszanski, MD, RPh, vice chair of the Department of Hematology/Oncology and director of the Early Drug Development Phase 1 Program at Fox Chase Cancer Center, has been named an associate editor of JNCCN—Journal of the National Comprehensive Cancer Network.  

JNCCN recently restructured its executive editorial board and conducted an extensive national search for eight new associate editors. The journal invited accomplished health services researchers from various NCCN Member Institutions to help oversee content. Olszanski is joined on the board by faculty from such institutions as Harvard Medical School, the Stanford Cancer Institute, the Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center of Northwestern University, and MD Anderson Cancer Center.

The journal’s expanding focus on original research is led by editor-in-chief Margaret Tempero, MD, Professor of Medicine and Director of the UCSF Pancreas Center at UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center. This vision has resulted in an all-time high impact factor for the journal. According to InCites Journal Citation Report data from Clarivate Analytics, articles from JNCCN were cited 5,143 times in 2017, resulting in an impact factor of 6.471 for the year, which places it in the top quartile for all oncology journals.

JNCCN studies have recently been featured in The Wall Street Journal, U.S. News & World Report, Physician’s Weekly, Everyday Health, and numerous other outlets. Studies have featured topics such as: breast cancer survivor mammogram rates, the “weekend effect” on emergency colorectal cancer surgery, and the importance of communication around end-of-life care. Every issue of JNCCN also includes the publication of a recently updated edition of the NCCN Clinical Practice Guidelines in Oncology (NCCN Guidelines®).

JNCCN publishes 13 issues every year, with select content available for free online at JNCCN.org for three months after publication. NCCN Guidelines Panel Chairs also serve as members of JNCCN’s Guidelines Editorial Board.
