Policies for Submissions

Who Can Submit

We only publish materials about work conducted under the auspices of Cancer Research Coordinating Committee funding opportunity available through UC Research Initiatives.

The editors reserve the right to determine the suitability of submissions. For additional information, please contact the UCRI Program Officer assigned to your grant, or


Once posted to a repository, a paper cannot generally be revised or removed. We feel it is important to provide perpetual access to materials published within eScholarship whenever possible and appropriate. However, we will remove publications under special circumstances, including in the case of submission errors, rights violations, or inappropriate content. Please be aware, however, that even after the removal of a text, a citation to the paper will remain in our system, along with a URL.

If you would like your work removed from eScholarship, please contact the administrator:
