The predominant geographical distribution among the authors was American, while the articles were written primarily in English. Dispersion of literature (Bradford Law): core (1st tertile), 22 journals (7,94%; CI95% 4,76-11,13) with 202 articles published (33,44%; CI95% 29,68-37,21). Statistics related to the impact factor of the core: mean 4,033 ± 4,022 and maximum 18,038 (Journal of Clinical Oncology).
