Oncology is a branch of medicine dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer. Medical professionals in this field are referred to as “oncologists” and many may specialize in a specific type or area of cancer.
Oncotarget seeks to bridge the gap when it comes to the research and discoveries made in this area of medicine. Often times there is a border between specialists since they’re focused on their own research rather than other aspects of oncology. Oncotarget is a trustworthy, peer-reviewed journal which makes these discoveries and research easily available to other specialists. The ultimate goal for Oncotarget is to eliminate disease completely by making research and exceptional discoveries easily available to other oncologists in the field.
There are three components to oncology that over time have improved the survival in cancer:
Prevention – The reductions in risks associated with the consumption or use of tobacco and alcohol.
Early Diagnosis – Screening the common cancers and forming a comprehensive diagnosis and tracking the stage of cancer.
Treatment – Discussion on how to treat cancer and receiving the right treatment at a cancer center.
Oncotarget’s continued dedication to the world of oncology has led the peer-reviewed journal to rise in popularity. Their influence through the dedicated studies of prominent studies has led them to be one of the most influential medical journals on the web. They release their issues weekly which contain research papers submitted by researchers in every area of oncology. They’ve since expanded their issues to involve other areas of the medical field so they can continue to spread the knowledge and discoveries made in the medical field.
Bringing down the borders between specialists is beneficial not only to the medical community, but to the oncologists dedicated to the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of various cancers. Being able to go to once source when they have access to research and discoveries made by other specialists in the field provides valuable information and feedback. Oncotarget’s issues are available for anyone to read so researchers can be one step closer to treating and preventing cancer. Download output styles at Endnote.com
