About the Journal

Research & Reviews: A Journal of Toxicology [2231-3834 (e)] is a peer-reviewed open access journal launched in 2010 and focused on the publication of current research work carried out under Toxicology. It is concerned with the harmful effects of chemical, biological and physical agents in biological systems that establish the extent of damage to living organisms.

Focus and Scope
