Publications & Presentations

We change cancer medicine, and help patients, by sharing our trial results in journal articles and scientific presentations. Because these publications and presentations inform cancer prevention and clinical practice, they're the most important outcomes of our work.

For rules and guidelines for publishing SWOG Cancer Research Network trial results in academic journals or presenting SWOG trial results at scientific or medical meetings, see SWOG's publications policy. Questions on our policy? Send an email to SWOG Publications Manager Pat Arlauskas at

We recommend you use the full suite of SWOG and NCI logos for posters and other presentations. NOTE: To drop the logos into your poster or documents, you will first need to convert the logos from a PDF to a JPG or other image file. To do this, open the PDF in Acrobat, at the top left hand corner, click on "File" and "Save as Other/Type" and choose the type of image file you'd like.
