We begin this first issue of 2010 by welcoming the 3,000 members of the American Society of Breast Surgeons and assessing the growth of the Annals of Surgical Oncology... The Annals is now the official journal for both the Society of Surgical Oncology and the American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBS)... The ASBS brings with it a membership whose mission aligns nicely with the strategic vision of the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO) and the Annals... The ASBS will have a special ASO edition to be published in October 2010, which will be a valuable additional resource for both ASBS members and SSO members... Gastrointestinal, Melanoma, and Breast Oncology sections continue to grow as well... This successful relationship with ASBS and the Annals provides a model for the establishment of other educational partnerships with societies worldwide... Regarding the print issues, the Annals published fewer pages in 2009 than in either of the previous 2 years... The tripling of manuscript submissions since 2006 has improved the quality, but it has become a challenge to manage the page budget... The Annals will fulfill its mission through publication of the highest-quality articles, and the continuing growth of submissions will mean that more papers will be not found acceptable for publication... A new policy to be effective in 2010 is to enforce a word limit for manuscripts and to limit the number of tables and figures per paper... The continuing partnership of the journal with SSO and ASBS members, the publisher Springer, expert authors, critical reviewers, and devoted members of the Editorial Board, including section editors and associate editors, defines its scientific and educational impact, that in turn influences multidisiciplinary cancer care worldwide, both in 2010 and in the years to come... We thank the many people who continue to contribute to the Annals' success.

Mentions: The journal’s Editorial Office is staffed under the leadership of Deb Whippen (info@asoeditorial) and two editorial staff—Julie Leneghan and Joe Wiggs—who have accommodated the significant increase in manuscript volume (Fig. 1) and its related author, reviewer, and editor support needs. The publishing program for Annals has also grown through the journal’s association with Springer and the able leadership and expertise of Annie Cimino, Yvonne Chan, Anna Uger, and Ben Ellis. Fig. 1
