Oncotarget Further Increases Its Publication Frequency

Due to rising importance, impact, volume and quality, Oncotarget will begin publishing two issues per week on Tuesday and Friday.

To accelerate the dissemination of highly important scientific information, all accepted papers will be included directly to final paginated issues to be released to PubMed quickly and in their permanent form.

Issues 8(31-40) are now in PubMed. Please see the link.

Issues 8(41-43) are currently submitting and processing by the National Library of Medicine to appear in PubMed.

By submitting two issues per week we will cover the gap and there will be no delays in the future.

If your paper was mistakenly rejected by other leading journals, you may submit it to Oncotarget together with peer-reviews obtained from the other journal and rebuttal letter.

The term "oncotarget" encompasses all molecules, pathways, and cellular functions common in cancer and aging, neurodegeneration and atherosclerosis, lymphocytes and neurons, cancer cells and microbes.

Oncotarget is a multidisciplinary traditional journal with free-access. Oncotarget publishes papers online in weekly issues. Each issue or paper can be printed for special demand.

Our mission is to make scientific results rapidly and widely available. To maximize the impact of research via insightful review. To allow exceptional discoveries to be shared quickly. To eliminate the border between specialties. To link different fields of biomedical science. To foster applications of basic and clinical science to fight disease.

Under the leadership of the most prominent scientists, the journal helps all researchers contribute to the progress of science. Life without disease is our ultimate goal.

The success of Oncotarget has prompted us to launch sections beyond oncology.
