This issue of the Archives includes previously unpublished protocols for the examination of specimens removed from patients with cancer of diverse sites. We provide a historical context for the development of these protocols and describe the process of development and approval. General information about the structure and content of the protocols is also provided. Cancer protocol development is an important step in the process of standardized cancer reporting. The value of such standardized reporting is discussed.
