Scope Journal for ImmunoTherapy of Cancer (JITC) is the open access, peer reviewed, online journal of the Society for Immunotherapy of Cancer (SITC). The journal publishes articles on all aspects of tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy and, in doing so, aims to enrich communication and advance scientific understanding among the many stakeholders in this rapidly evolving field. Topics of interest range widely across the basic science-translational-clinical spectrum and include tumor-host interactions, the tumor microenvironment, animal models, predictive and prognostic immune biomarkers, novel pharmaceutical and cellular therapies, vaccines, combination immune-based therapies, and immune-related toxicity. JITC publishes high quality original research articles, literature reviews, position papers and practice guidelines, and case reports; invited commentaries may also be commissioned by the journal. Together, these articles make JITC the leading forum for research in tumor immunology and cancer immunotherapy.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.
