Toxicology as a multidisciplinary, data-rich field has witnessed the availability of a cutting-edge technologies to investigate mechanisms underlying adverse consequences of exposures to xenobiotic chemicals, particularly as it relates to human health. Toxicology fully embraces these advancements by serving as a hub for exchange of information regarding state-of-the-art developments in the broad field of contemporary toxicology. Journal scope emphasis is on human-relevant and mechanistic research at all levels of biological organization, ranging from the molecular scale to the organismal level. The publication priority for Toxicology is on original high-quality research and review papers on any topic relevant to toxicology, in particular related to hazard identification, all that are subject to rigorous peer-review. The Toxicology target audience includes undergraduates to full professionals in academic, industrial and regulatory settings in any part of the world.

Notes from the Editors

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.
