FORCE’s XRAY program takes you behind the headlines to bring you reliable information about cancer research-related news and information. “eXamining the Relevance of Articles for You” (XRAY) provides a reliable way for people to understand cancer information covered by the media.
Information in the articles is compared to original research, a summary of the findings is written, and summaries are reviewed and approved by a member of the FORCE Scientific Advisory Board. Articles are also rated for Relevance, Scientific Strength, Quality of Writing, and Research Cycle. Lastly articles are given a 5-star rating based on whether the writing is accurate, how well the article was executed, and how scientifically accurate the media report is.
We hope these articles and XRAY will be useful to you.
