About the book

Soft tissue tumors are a heterogeneous group of neoplasms with a large range of tumor types, each of which is characterized by unique features in terms of its epidemiology, pathology, clinical behavior, therapy, and molecular biomarker pattern of both diagnostic and therapeutic value.

This book will present an up-to-date overview of soft tissue tumors, which include both benign and malignant phenotypes. While most soft tissue tumors occur in adults, some are diagnosed in children and adolescents. These tumors present scientific and clinical challenges due to their high incidence, morbidity, and mortality. Therefore, there is a significant need for advanced diagnostic tests and novel therapeutic approaches as well as a deeper understanding of soft tissue tumors at the pathological and molecular levels.

This volume aims to foster collaboration between world-class bench scientists and clinicians in the fields of oncology, surgery, and pathology as they come together to highlight the complexity and diversity of soft tissue tumors as well as recent advances in their diagnosis and clinical management.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Marina Dusevic

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
