1. AACR's Mission

The AACR's mission is to accelerate the prevention and cure of cancer through research, education, and communication. Founded in 1907, the American Association for Cancer Research (AACR) is a professional society of more than 22,000 laboratory and clinical scientists engaged in basic, translational, and clinical cancer research in the United States and over 60 other countries. Its principal activities include:

1) The publication of five major peer-reviewed scientific journals (Cancer Research; Clinical Cancer Research; Molecular Cancer Therapeutics; Molecular Cancer Research; Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention).

2) Holding an Annual Meeting that attracts more than 15,000 participants who share new and significant discoveries in the cancer field.

3) Organizing AACR's special conferences throughout the year, focusing on all the important areas of basic, translational, and clinical cancer research.

4) Organizing educational programs for scientists through summer educational workshops and other activities.

2. Our Commitment to the DC Principles

The American Association for Cancer Research helped develop and strongly supports the Washington DC Principles for Free Access to Science (www.dcprinciples.org). These principles emphasize the traditional commitment of not-for-profit publishers to worldwide dissemination of science, within the context of proven and realistic publishing models, and support experimentation with new models.

3. Free Journal Highlights

Every two weeks, the AACR publishes journal Highlights on the Association's Website, aacr.org. Selected articles from AACR journals are free to anyone for the 2 weeks after publication. Presently, Highlights cover only Cancer Research. Plans are under way to extend this feature to the other journals in the next year.

4. Free Archive

The AACR Journals website allows free access to all journal abstracts upon publication and to the full text of articles 1 year after publication. AACR journal back issues extend to 1998 or 1999, and loading of a complete archive is planned.

The AACR also participates in the HINARI program which provides free or discounted access to the full text of the journals to institutions in developing countries.

5. Pay-Per-View Access

All AACR journals offer pay-per-view access to any current article.

Users without a subscription have access to journal search functions, the Tables of Contents, articles more than 1 year old, and the journal abstracts at no cost and without having to register.

Two pay-per-view options are available for users who are not subscribers but would like temporary access to full-text articles.

Pay-per-view: $12.00 for access to a single article for 24 hours.
Pay-per-admission: $22.00 for access to an entire journal site for 24 hours.

To purchase access, follow the links under pay-per-view on the Sign-In page. This page will appear when you try to access a full-text article.
