The AJC welcomes Beijing, China.

 Mr Hamish Holewa, visited Beijing to establish an editorial branch of the international journal, the Austral-Asian Journal of Cancer (AJC).

The opening of a Beijing AJC editorial office represents an exciting step forward for the AJC, raising its profile and activities within China and the central Asian region. This compliments the journal’s current international presence and offices in Australia, India, the USA, Greece, Japan, and the UK.


According to Mr Holewa, “the AJC, to our knowledge, is the first English language cancer journal to be distributed and promoted from a Chinese editorial office. This represents an exciting step forward for the cancer research and for the AJC.”


In opening a Chinese AJC editorial office, Mr Holewa consolidated a three way link between IPP-SHR, the AJC’s Chinese editors based at the General Hospital of Chinese People’s Armed Police Forces and the International Research Promotion Council (IRPC), an important partner of the AJC.  These ties were formalised with the signing of a memorandum of understanding (MOU). 


This partnership will be used to enhance international research collaborations, strengthen exchange programs between host country institutions, and support and promote quality peer-reviewed scientific publications within China, Australia and internationally.


“We are pleased to welcome our Chinese colleagues to the AJC and are keen to further scientific and research ties between all countries involved with the AJC,” Mr Holewa said.


The AJC is now a leader in the provision of open access (OA) journal content to all readers interested in cancer issues throughout the Austral-Asian region.
