AJCC Moving from Editions to Versions in 2021
The American Joint Committee on Cancer (AJCC) is making an important change to how it updates and releases Cancer Staging content beginning in 2021. The AJCC will be shifting from a Cancer Staging Manual to a Cancer Staging System and moving away from Editions, to Versions which better align with software development and how users are increasingly consuming AJCC content. Version 9 of the Cervix Uteri Cancer Staging System will go into effect January 1, 2021.
For over forty years and eight editions the AJCC has published its AJCC TNM Cancer Staging System in printed books. Since then, the way information is produced, consumed, and disseminated has changed dramatically. The workflow of AJCC users has changed and increasingly the expectation is that AJCC content is in the software products they use every day. In 2017, the AJCC made its content available for software developers as XML code for the first time. Over the subsequent years, the AJCC has made a concerted effort to better align content curation with modern software development practices.
