Oncotarget is a peer-reviewed journal published by Impact Journals and available to the public through open access. The journal was established 2010, publishing a single issue every month. To provide oncology researchers a forum to rapidly publish important or timely research, the journal increased its publishing frequency to every week. On the home page of the journal’s website, the publisher states that rising importance, impact, volume and quality have prompted the journal to soon increase its publishing frequency again to twice a week, every Tuesday and Friday and Oncotarget’s lacrosse camp .
