Publications Discount for CIMM Members


The AACR journal Cancer Immunology Research (CIR) publishes outstanding original research on major advances in cancer immunology that span the discipline from basic investigations in host-tumor interactions to developmental therapeutics in model systems, early translational studies in patients, and late-stage clinical trials. The CIMM working group of the AACR and the Cancer Research Institute provided the impetus and support for the launch of CIR. In appreciation, all CIMM members who publish in CIR receive a special discount of 5 percent on the publication charges (excluding AuthorChoice) in addition to the AACR member discount of 5 percent. Thus, the total discount on the charges is 10 percent for CIMM members only. Just use the code “CIMMAO2020” when receiving notification from the CIR staff about author billing. Visit the CIR website to view recent issues and learn how you can submit manuscripts for consideration on our Instructions for Authors page.
