The Atlas is a peer reviewed on-line journal / encyclopedia / database established in 1997.
How is funded the journal ?
The Atlas is a not-for-profit organization and each member is benevolent/volunteer.
The Atlas relies on individual donations, grants (scientific societies, charities), working hours benevolently spent by staff of research and/or higher education and/or health care public institutions (see Activity reports).

How to contribute / Instructions to Authors

Collaborations are most welcome!
The Atlas is hyperlinked by SwissProt, the Mitelman Database , GeneCards, and many others.

Instruction for Authors Policies
Editorial Ethics
and Copyright

The Atlas does not publish research articles. The Atlas publishes reviews articles ("Papers/cards" and "Deep Insights") mainly, and a few "Case reports" in hematology. Most of the review articles are commitioned papers (97% of the papers), but unsolicited papers are welcome. Authors of review articles are selected according to the quality of their previous publications in the literature (sort of reviewing process 'a priori'). Review articles are reviewed by the Editor, Section Editor, and/or Editorial board members. Unsolicited papers are papers of the Case report section (3% of the papers), where the reviewing process is 'a posteriori', and must be extremely cautious. There is 1 inside reviewer and 3 to 4 outside reviewers for each Case report. The Editor-in-Chief keeps the final authority on all editorial decisions.
For complete Instructions to authors, see Instruction for Authors Policies. In short, herein below:

  • I- Papers/Cards
  • II- Deep Insights
  • III- Case reports
  • IV- Iconography
  • V- Updates
  • VI- Conflicts of Interest
  • VII- Privacy and Confidentiality - Iconography
  • VIII- Editorial policies
  • IX- Creative Commons
  • X- Editorial Correspondance
  • XI- Rules, Copyright Notice and Disclaimer
    You are welcome to write on: genes, cytogenetic entities, leukemias, solid tumors , and cancer prone diseases.
    It is ESSENTIAL to use the guidelines/templates herein given :

    Criterias of relevance of an entity:
    - Genes: hybrid gene found in at least 1 cancer case, or gene mutation, amplification or homozygous deletion found in a significant subset of cases in a given cancer-type.
    - Chromosome structural aberrations: found in at least 2 cases in a given cancer, or in only 1 case if the hybrid gene is also described.
    - Cancer-prone disease: significant aggregation of a cancer-type found within families, or a patient with a germ-line mutation (first allele) and a somatic mutation in the tumour (second allele) of a gene known to be implicated in this tumour-type.
    Please, contact us before undertaking any work, to avoid double (conflicting) reports.

    These papers do not follow the above mentioned patterns; they are written as traditional papers, made of paragraphs with headings, at the author's convenience.

    This section is dedicated to recurrent -but rare- chromosomes abnormalities in leukemias / lymphomas. As stated, cases of interest shall be :
    1. recurrent (i.e. previously described in at least 1 case),
    2. rare (previously described in less than 20 cases),
    3. with well documented clinics and laboratory findings, and
    4. iconography on chromosomes,
    5. in cases of hematological malignancy.
    Please, use the templates: Submission form for CASE REPORTS

    IV- ICONOGRAPHY solely
    is most welcome (accompanied with a legend, and the names and first name of the colleagues to be acknowledged: " Courtesy .... " ).
    - In particular chromosome structural anomalies (G- and R- bandings and others), even if the anomaly is already in the Atlas in 1 or 2 samples, and FISH images;
    - But also drawings of genes and proteins, pathology images, X-Rays.
    - Maximal width for drawings is 25 cm, resolution 72 pixels/inch.
    - Please use preferably Arial 10 point for lettering.
    - Images should be sent preferably in PPT for drawings, and in PNG, JPG, or PSD for photographs: chromosomes, histo-pathology, radiographs; the desk may have problems with other formats.
    - The Editor keeps the right to process drawings for them to conform with our editorial policies.

    V- Updates
    The rules for updates in the Atlas is to start from the current paper and modify it, add on it, as a sort of collaboration over times between two authors. We want to acknowledge the work of past, as well as present and future authors of the Atlas, because the Atlas is indebted to all the colleagues participating in it.
    So, please, for an update: go to the existing card / select all / copy and past in a new file (templates at: )/ put in green what should be deleted / add in red / comment in blue / and send it back to us by e-mail; see an example: Update_GATA2.pdf

    VI- Conflicts of Interest
    Authors must state explicitly whether potential conflicts do or do not exist. Reviewers must disclose to editors any conflicts of interest that could bias their opinions of the manuscript. The editor and the editorial board members must disclose any potential conflict. See Editorial Ethics

    VII- Privacy and Confidentiality - Iconography
    Patients have a right to privacy. Identifying details should be omitted. If complete anonymity is difficult to achieve, informed consent should be obtained. See Editorial Ethics.

    VIII- Editorial policies
    You will find additional publications policies and requirements applied in the Atlas at the site of the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors: Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals: Writing and Editing for Biomedical Publication - Updated October 2004 .
