Aims and Scope
American-Eurasian Journal of Toxicological Sciences (AEJTS) is a peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles as well as review articles in all areas of toxicology.
The journal presents scientific reports dealing with the basic toxicology and with the physiological, pharmacological, and toxic response of cellular systems. Studies of subcellular and cellular systems derived from both prokaryotic and eukaryotic cell types are also included. Studies of toxic effects may include, but are not limited to, cytotoxicity, mutagenicity, carcinogenicity, and teratogenicity. In particular, the journal emphasizes approaches to cellular studies or molecular structure activity correlations that provide sound scientific information leading to the decreased use of experimental animals.
The journal publishes papers describing original research results, reviews, announcements of scientific meetings or courses, and availability of funding, fellowships, and scholarships.
The journal also welcomes articles in form of hypothesis; a place of communicating interesting and important theoretical papers that foster the diversity and debate upon which the scientific process thrives.
In addition to studies relating to food, water and other consumer products, papers on industrial and agricultural chemicals and pharmaceuticals are encouraged.
Furthermore new areas such as eco-toxicology and inter-relationships between nutrition and toxicology are welcomed. The studies may address the physiological, biochemical or pathological changes induced by specific substances, techniques for assessing potential toxicity, including molecular biology or the mechanisms underlying toxic phenomena. All aspects of in vivo toxicology are covered, including systemic effects on specific organ systems, immune functions, carcinogenesis and teratogenesis. Papers reporting the toxicological examination of specific chemicals or consumer products are published irrespective of the positive or negative nature of the results, provided the tests and reporting meet current standards of adequacy. The Journal's editorial policy reflects the need for high-quality science in support of health and safety decisions.
The journal is willing to consider papers of a more regulatory nature, provided they are part of a more general scientific analysis.
Publishing contents in both forms Online and in print (5 offprints + Hard copy)
