Oncotarget is a medical journal published on weekly basis by Impact Journals. The peer-reviewed open access journal was established in 2010, covering oncology topics only. Its continued growth has seen it expand to accept papers from other topics including Neuroscience, Endocrinology, Cardiology, Metabolism, Cell Biology, and Pharmacology among others. Oncotarget has succeed to become one of the best free access journal. The goal of this multidisciplinary journal is to increase the impact of biomedical scientific research and promote the applicability of clinical science, which will significantly improve treatment of a diverse range of diseases.

The success of Oncotarget is driven by able scientific leaders who are committed to assist researchers develop advanced approaches of tackling diseases. Mikhail Blagosklonny is one of the key personalities propelling this noble course of disseminating scientific information that has greatly boosted collaboration among scientists. Mikhail is the Editor-in-Chief working alongside Andrei V. Gudkov.
