On March 29, 2012, "GMS Onkologische Rehabilitation und Sozialmedizin" went online, a new journal edited by the Working Group "Oncological Rehabilitation" of the German Association of Hematology and Oncology (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Hämatologie und Onkologie; DGHO).

The main focus of the journal is the publication of original research and review articles in oncological rehabilitation and social medicine. "The journal will enhance scientific exchange and discussion of new findings in this area", says Editor-in-Chief Oliver Rick, initiator and former chair of the Working Group "Oncological Rehabilitation" of the DGHO. "For our launch, one of the first articles gives an overview on the current situation of rehabilitation of germ cell cancer patients. Moreover, new insights into adiposity treatment during oncological rehabilitation as well as the results of a survey on sports and cancer are presented". These articles, like all articles to be published in GMS Onkologische Rehabilitation und Sozialmedizin, are now available open access.

GMS Onkologische Rehabilitation und Sozialmedizin invites authors to submit their work for peer review.
