A section of Mutation Research

Mutation Research: Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis - ISSN 1383-5718
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 0.863 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 0.654 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 2.506 (2019) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Mutation Research - Genetic Toxicology and Environmental Mutagenesis (MRGTEM) publishes papers advancing knowledge in the field of genetic toxicology. Papers are welcomed in the following areas:

  • New developments in genotoxicity testing of chemical agents (e.g. improvements in methodology of assay systems and interpretation of results).
  • Alternatives to and refinement of the use of animals in genotoxicity testing.
  • Nano-genotoxicology, the study of genotoxicity hazards and risks related to novel man-made nanomaterials.
  • Studies of epigenetic changes in relation to genotoxic effects.
  • The use of structure-activity relationships in predicting genotoxic effects.
  • The isolation and chemical characterization of novel environmental mutagens.
  • The measurement of genotoxic effects in human populations, when accompanied by quantitative measurements of environmental or occupational exposures.
  • The application of novel technologies for assessing the hazard and risks associated with genotoxic substances (e.g. OMICS or other high-throughput approaches to genotoxicity testing).
  • MRGTEM is now accepting submissions for a new section of the journal: Current Topics in Genotoxicity Testing, that will be dedicated to the discussion of current issues relating to design, interpretation and strategic use of genotoxicity tests. This section is envisaged to include discussions relating to the development of new international testing guidelines, but also to wider topics in the field. The evaluation of contrasting or opposing viewpoints is welcomed as long as the presentation is in accordance with the journal's aims, scope, and policies.

MRGTEM supports and follows the general direction proposed by all major societies in the field part of the International Association of Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Societies (IAEMGS):
  • Asociacion Latinoamericana de Mutagenesis, Carcinogenesis y Teratogenesis Ambiental (ALAMCTA)
  • Brazilian Association of Mutagenesis and Environmental Genomics (MutaGen-Brasil)
  • Chinese Environmental Mutagen Society (CEMS)
  • European Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EEMGS)
  • Environmental Mutagenesis and Genomics Society (EMGS)
  • Environmental Mutagen Society of India (EMS India)
  • Iranian Environmental Mutagen Society (IrEMS)
  • The Japanese Environmental Mutagen Society (JEMS)
  • Korean Environmental Mutagen Society (KEMS)
  • Molecular and Experimental Pathology Society of Australasia (MEPSA)
  • Pan-African Environmental Mutagen Society (PAEMS)
  • Philippines Environmental Mutagen Society (PEMS)
  • Thai Environmental Mutagen Society (TEMS)

Benefits to authors

MRGTEM is focused on promoting the authors and the work published in the journal:

  • All articles are carefully evaluated by the Editors-in-Chief who are leading experts in their field
  • Availability: contact the Editors-in-Chief and the Associate Editor via the Editorial Board page for any questions you may have
  • The Journal will provide upon request free PDFs to all authors who may not have access to their articles via their institution or library
  • Publication is free to authors (no color or page charges)
  • Supporting open access: if your funding body or institution requires your article to be open access, MRGTEM offers that option. Please see details here.
  • Reuse figures from any MRGTEM article via "get rights and content" hyperlink available within each article (below author names and affiliations) on ScienceDirect.
