    One hundred years ago, in 1923, the first oncological journal in Poland was published: Bulletin of the Polish Anti-Cancer Committee. It is an educational bimonthly journal, publishing articles, information and chronicle materials, book reviews, reports, memoirs, Journal Club, and announcements.

    'Nowotwory. Journal of Oncology', established in 1923 is the official bimonthly journal of the Polish Society of Oncology, The Maria Skłodowska-Curie Institute of Oncology and of the Polish Society of Surgical Oncology. The Journal publishes original papers, review articles, case reports, letters to editor, book reviews, editorial comments and history notes covering all aspects of oncology but focusing on clinical studies, both research and treatment oriented with contributions from fields of epidemiology, tumor pathology, radiobiology and radiation physics. 

    In 1928, the title was changed and a single, but significant word was added: Nowotwory (Cancers). For decades, this title has accompanied generations of Polish oncologists. This year marks the centenary of our common journal, Nowotwory. It is one of the world’s oldest continuously published scientific journals in oncology. (
