Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov created an online medical journal that is now being used by the majority of scientists around the world because of its reliability and convenience. They also serve as the online medical journal’s editors in chief, responsible for reviewing every article that is being submitted by contributors around the world. They named their online medical journal as Oncotarget, because it initially requested information about cancer from the contributors, who are mostly oncologists, but since 2017, there are other scholarly articles found on the online medical journal that tackles about other deadly diseases, and it is no longer focused on articles about cancer alone. Oncotarget is also known as the first peer-reviewed online medical journal, which means that a panel of scientists is reviewing each article that is being sent to Oncotarget. It allows the online medical journal to have a collection of high-quality articles that tackles about fatal human diseases. Learn more about Oncotarget at Research Gate.
In 2010, Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov had a conversation about creating a system that would enable oncologists from around the world to meet up in a virtual platform where they can share their ideas. They started to think about creating a website, which would, later on, be referred to as Oncotarget, and they managed to get a lot of readers from around the world after the online medical journal was launched. The names Mikhail Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov became well-known among the scientific community because of their creation. After making it live, scientists from around the world now have the chance to send what they know about cancer and other fatal diseases to the system’s database, and it will be reviewed by the scientific community. If the articles made it through the selection process, other scientists from around the world would be able to access the document using only a computer and a personal computer.
