About the Journal

The International Journal of Toxins and Toxics is a peer-reviewed open-access journal launched in 2024 that aims to publish high-quality research articles and reviews related to all aspects of toxicology.

The Journal welcomes original research articles, reviews, and short communications from all parts of the world. All submitted manuscripts are peer-reviewed by experts in the field and accepted for publication based on their scientific quality, originality, and relevance to the field of toxicology.

The target audience for IJT includes toxicologists, environmental scientists, occupational health professionals, pharmacologists, regulatory agencies, and other researchers and professionals interested in toxicology and related fields. The ultimate goal of the journal is to advance knowledge and understanding of toxicology, microbiology, environmental science, toxicology, food science, pharmacology, and public health and to promote the development of safer and more effective strategies for protecting human health and the environment.
