The NORDCAN database is unique in covering a long time-span of high-quality cancer data from populations with practically full access to health care. We are deeply thankful to the NORDCAN team on behalf of the global cancer community for making the database available [
]. The database is accessible at the web site of the International Agency for Research on Cancer without restrictions: ‘Data in NORDCAN is freely available, and the data is used at the researcher's own risk’. Two references are recommended: Larönningen et al. (dated 23.6.2022) and Engholm et al. (2010).

- PreviewOne of the most recent articles using data from NORDCAN in the European Journal of Cancer is the article ‘Survival trends in solid cancers in the Nordic countries through 50 years’ by Janne Hemminki, Asta Försti, Akseli Hemminki and Kari Hemminki . In this article, the writers state that ‘The data used originate from the NORDCAN database …“, which is correct. The second paragraph of ‘Methods’ gives the details on how the survival analysis is performed. This paragraph, however, does not say anything about the fact that all survival analyses are already done by NORDCAN, in the NORDCAN pipeline and tool (nordcan.R), prior to being sent to the International Agency for Research on Cancer and the NORDCAN database .
