Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.128 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): 1.029 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: 4.099 (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.

Toxicology is an international, peer-reviewed journal that publishes only the highest quality original scientific research and critical reviews describing hypothesis-based investigations into mechanisms of toxicity associated with exposures to xenobiotic chemicals, particularly as it relates to human health. In this respect "mechanisms" is defined on both the macro (e.g. physiological, biological, kinetic, species, sex, etc.) and molecular (genomic, transcriptomic, metabolic, etc.) scale. Emphasis is placed on findings that identify novel hazards and that can be extrapolated to exposures and mechanisms that are relevant to estimating human risk. Toxicology also publishes brief communications, personal commentaries and opinion articles, as well as concise expert reviews on contemporary topics. All research and review articles published in Toxicology are subject to rigorous peer review. Authors are asked to contact the Editor-in-Chief prior to submitting review articles or commentaries for consideration for publication in Toxicology.

Notes from the Editor

In order to support interpretation of published findings to human health, the journal requires inclusion of specific statements within the ABSTRACT and METHODS sections of each submitted article:


  • The experimental system (e.g., in vivo species, cell culture, etc.) including the exposure dose or concentration and duration that produces an effect, if an effect is observed, must be described in the ABSTRACT to the manuscript.


  • The relevance of the experimental system and exposure dose or concentration and duration in terms of potential human exposures must be described in the Materials and Methods section of the manuscript. Justification of the exposure cannot be based solely on previous publications, but rather the comparison must be to either estimated, anticipated, or measured human exposures.
  • The authors must identify the chemicals by CAS number, their source and purity; the method of randomization for group sampling, the number of experimental sample replicates in each treatment group, and provide a proper description of the statistical analysis of data that was employed.

Journal Policy:

  • TOXICOLOGY does not publish results from exposures to uncharacterized chemical mixtures or extracts from natural products. All exposures must be fully characterized analytically. Justification for this policy is that it is near impossible for other investigators to replicate findings of a study wherein the chemical composition of the exposure is not completely characterized.
  • TOXICOLOGY does not publish purely descriptive safety studies or studies describing the therapeutic efficacy of cytotoxic agents without strong emphasis on end-points relating to a proposed mechanism of toxicity.
