ASCOconnection.org is the professional networking site for the American Society of Clinical Oncology and the Association for Clinical Oncology and the companion website for ASCO Connection, the organizations' official member publication. It is the primary source of information about Society and Association programs and resources. ASCO Connection promotes opportunities for interaction between the organizations and their members, and members and their colleagues.
ASCOconnection.org features blogs from members and leaders, the online version of the membership publication as well as online exclusive articles, career development resources, and links to the Membership Directory and ASCO myConnection.
A special edition, The Best of ASCO Connection Blogs, features engaging blog posts from the previous year and is distributed annually at the ASCO Annual Meeting.
Submission and Authorship
ASCO Connection welcomes guest blog posts and articles on a variety of oncology-related topics. Guest posts and articles must be authored or co-authored by an ASCO member in good standing. By submitting an article to ASCO Connection, all authors agree to abide by all of the author guidelines, including guidelines around conflict of interest disclosure and avoidance of bias. Publication in ASCO Connection (in print or online) is subject to review and approval by the publisher, the editor in chief, and/or the ASCO Meeting & Member Publications Editorial Board.
If you are interested in submitting a blog post or article, contact ASCO Connection editorial staff at email@example.com.
Articles developed and authored by ASCO members, volunteers, and invited experts in the oncology community will have a byline indicating the names of all authors; links to the authors' disclosures in ASCO's Conflict of Interest database will be included in online versions of the articles. Articles developed by ASCO may include a staff byline, a freelancer byline, or no byline; these stories are developed and reviewed internally by ASCO subject matter experts and ASCO Connection editorial staff.
ASCO Connection is a member benefit and is mailed in print to U.S.-based members in good standing. To change your mailing address or cancel your print subscription, please contact ASCO Customer Service.
