Submission Guidelines and Policies

Manuscript Submission


International Journal of Toxicology (IJT) accepts submissions of manuscripts that promote basic toxicology research or facilitate and improve toxicology practice. IJT does not publish case reports, case studies, papers showing results with poorly characterized natural products, or papers focused on ecotoxicology or chemoprotection. Submissions must comply with the SAGE guidelines on prior publication.

Prospective authors should ensure they have read the journal’s Aims & Scope before submitting a manuscript. All submissions must comply with the American College of Toxicology’s Policy Statement on the Use of Animals in Toxicology.
