Clarivate 담당팀에서 아래와 같은 Oncotarget 탈락 이유 답변을 주었습니다.
문의 주신 Oncotarget 저널은 시스템에서 확인 결과 Web of Science(SCIE)에 2017년도 Volume 8 까지만 마지막으로 색인되고, 이 후 2018년 논문부터는 입력되지 않을 것입니다.

Oncotarget 은 Volume 9 (4) 2018 까지 색인 후 SCIE 에서 제외될 예정입니다!
After a thorough review, Oncotarget was deselected fromWeb of Science, the Journal Citation Reports (JCR), and all other Clarivate Analytics products, as the journal no longer meets the standards necessary for continued coverage. All papers published in the journal through Volume 9 (4) 2018 will be indexed and will appear in Web of Science in the coming weeks.
Oncotarget 저널은 2017년 12월에 SCIE에서 탈락되었습니다.
The journal was dropped for a complex of reasons; however, also because it no longer met our requirements for ethical publishing.
여러가지 이유가 있겠지만 ethical publishing 에 대한 문제가 주된 이유인 것으로 보여집니다.
MEDLINE 쪽에서 받은 탈락이유 답변도 안내해 드립니다.
Oncotarget is no longer indexed in MEDLINE, and the last volume to be included is volume 8 issue30, 2017. You are no longer seeing this citation in PubMed because this was an Ahead-of-Print (AOP) citation that was not assigned to an issue before this change occurred.
NLM periodically reviews currently indexed MEDLINE journals to ensure that they continue to meet NLM’s standards for its collection and databases. Journals may be deselected from MEDLINE for various reasons including extremely late publication patterns, major changes in the scientific quality or editorial process, and changes in ownership or publishers. When a MEDLINE journal has been deselected, the status of the journal becomes “not currently indexed.”
