This year BMC Cancer is celebrating its 20th Anniversary. Since launching in 2001 we are proud to have become a leading Open Access journal in the oncology field, considering all areas of cancer research from cancer cell biology to epidemiology to cancer therapeutics and much more. We're looking back at our achievements and highlighting some of the most influential research published in the journal over the past two decades.
