See what scientists world-wide have been citing and sharing.
In this Web Focus we highlight a selection of articles from 2019, which top the list of the journal’s most cited and most shared (including press coverage, blogs, Twitter, Facebook and Weibo). They showcase the breadth of scope and coverage that the journal consistently delivers to its readers.
Growth in research coming from Asia, specifically China, over recent years has been pronounced. China has now surpassed the US in terms of global publications output and is challenging the US and Europe in terms of R&D investment.
Not only has the volume of research increased but the quality of research has also improved with the volume of citations increasing and a greater percentage of top cited authors now coming from this region.
This collection showcases a selection of top cited articles published in Oncogene from authors hailing from this region.
The 2019 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine was jointly awarded to William G. Kaelin Jr, Sir Peter J. Ratcliffe and Gregg L. Semenza “for their discoveries of how cells sense and adapt to oxygen availability”. Collectively, their research led to an understanding of the elegant mechanism cells use to respond to changes in oxygen levels, a fundamental process that underpins normal physiologic functioning and plays a critical role in several diseases, including cancer. Via a combination of oxygen-dependant targeted destruction of the Hypoxia Inducible Factor and modulation of gene expression, cells are equipped to survive in a fluctuating environment. This pioneering research helped pave the way towards a plethora of medications that target this pathway. In celebration of their success, we have featured some of their articles in this collection, which includes content from Oncogene, British Journal of Cancer, Pediatric Research, Gene Therapy, Cell Death and Disease, and the Journal of Human Hypertension.

Oncogene has published several articles that have helped change the landscape in brain tumor research. This collection exemplifies the progress in the field. Even though it is by no means exclusive, we believe that the chosen papers address fundamental questions in the biology of GBM, medulloblastoma and even meningioma, a common but previously understudied benign brain tumor.
We are very proud that Oncogene has become an important voice in the cancer immunology conversation and we are pleased to present our collection of recently published papers in the field. These include both cutting edge original research articles as well as timely review papers. They add new targets and an understanding of mechanisms to this incredibly exciting area of translational cancer therapeutics. We hope you enjoy this selection.
A web focus from Cell Death & Differentiation, Cell Death & Disease, Nature Immunology and Oncogene. We hope you enjoy this focus including work from the world's most recognized experts in the field of Necroptosis.
