Oncotarget publishes studies that highlight issues such as Microbiology, Cancers, Aging, Cardiology, Pharmacology, Cell Biology and Neuroscience. It is cancer research. However, that takes the day. The magazine also focuses on the development and management of various tumors.
The journal is, in recent years, showing a lot of development and progress. Publishing twice a week is one such progress.
The magazine is also set to make permanent her appearance on PubMed, this will, however, only be done after page and issue numbers have been assigned. It is also important to know that Oncotarget will be the first of her kind to submit an entire issue to PubMed with only a few days after being published online.
