About the Journal

International Journal of Toxins is a peer-reviewed open-access journal launched in 2023 that that aims to provide a platform for the dissemination of high-quality research related to all aspects of toxins. The focus of the journal is on the detection, identification, characterization, and analysis of toxins in various matrices, including food, water, air, and biological samples. 

The International Journal of Toxins seeks to publish research that advances the understanding of toxins and their effects on human and animal health. The journal welcomes contributions from researchers and scientists from diverse fields, including microbiology, environmental science, toxicology, food science, pharmacology, and public health. All manuscripts submitted to the journal undergo rigorous peer-review by expert reviewers in the field to ensure the highest standards of quality and accuracy.
