Special LMIC Collection launched at IPOS’ official journal: The Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research and Practice

25 Apr 2024 12:13 PM | John Chagnon (Administrator)

The International Psycho-Oncology Society (IPOS) is deeply committed to supporting our global community of psycho-oncology researchers and patients.

Reflecting this commitment, we are pleased to announce a special initiative to support the publication of psycho-oncology research from Low and Middle Income Countries (LMICs) through our official journal, the Journal of Psychosocial Oncology Research and Practice.

The Journal is inviting papers from researchers and practitioners in LMICs on topics and issues relating to psycho-oncology in low and middle income countries and regions.

The collection will be overseen by special guest editors from the IPOS LMIC Committee (Dr Chioma Asuzu and Dr Jayita Deodar) and the Journal’s editorial team, who can assist with guidance and advice as needed to support authors.

It is essential that the lead author(s) reside in an LMIC and the work described has been conducted within an LMIC as well.

Manuscripts will undergo the journal’s usual peer review process, and if accepted a full waiver of publication costs will be provided (for up to 5 manuscripts).

Submitted manuscripts may be of any article type (e.g. review, original research, case report) and we are seeking breadth and diversity across LMICs and across themes relating to research and practice in these regions.

The Journal encourages all IPOS members in LMICs to consider submitting, and we particularly encourage manuscripts that address the following themes:

  • Models of service delivery
  • Indigenous psychosocial interventions
  • Cultural influence - on communication, interventions
  • Religious/spiritual well-being 
  • Training needs
  • Distress assessment and management 
  • Quality of life of cancer patients 
  • Adjustment and coping strategies of cancer patients 
  • Preventive psycho-oncology 

The deadline for submission of manuscripts is August 31, 2024.

The manuscript submission process will be through the Journal website and Editorial Manager system.

Please contact Jayita Deodhar with questions or to enquire about the suitability of your potential paper topic.
