About The Journal

Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Sciences (JTES) of Sciforce Publications is a journal which deals with the study of Environmental toxicology and it is a multidisciplinary field of science concerned with the study of the harmful effects of various chemical, biological and physical agents on living organisms. Ecotoxicology is a subdiscipline of environmental toxicology concerned with studying the harmful effects of toxicants at the population and ecosystem levels. Rachel Carson is considered the mother of environmental toxicology, as she made it a distinct field within toxicology in 1962 with the publication of her book Silent Spring, which covered the effects of uncontrolled pesticide use. Carson's book was based extensively on a series of reports by Lucille Farrier Stickel on the ecological effects of the pesticide DDT. Organisms can be exposed to various kinds of toxicants at any life cycle stage, some of which are more sensitive than others. Toxicity can also vary with the organism's placement within its food web. Bioaccumulation occurs when an organism stores toxicants in fatty tissues, which may eventually establish a trophic cascade and the biomagnification of specific toxicants. Biodegradation releases carbon dioxide and water as by-products into the environment. This process is typically limited in areas affected by environmental toxicants. Harmful effects of such chemical and biological agents as toxicants from pollutants, insecticides, pesticides, and fertilizers can affect an organism and its community by reducing its species diversity and abundance. Such changes in population dynamics affect the ecosystem by reducing its productivity and stability. 

Journal of toxicology of Environmental Sciences is intended to provide a platform for discussing and presenting applied and fundamental research which are relevant to the issues of local or global environments, human & animal health, plus occupational safety. The journal also seeks to publish any significant and novel research which is on the behavior of human impact, emerging contaminants on the environment, human manifestation to environmental contaminants and their health effects, and environmental remediation and management. The Journal also provides an open forum for professionals in academia, government, and industry who are involved in the use, management, and protection of the chemicals in the environment for the improvement of human health and occupational safety. 

Journal of Toxicology of Environmental Sciences is an Open access system. To be precise, manuscripts which have an interdisciplinary approaches to solve any current local or global environmental issues that relates with above topics are  always welcomed; this might include topic as cutting-edge applications in basic principles of chemistry, physics and biology, which could also contribute significantly with new  understandings in the measurements, predictions, and assessments of the consequential effects which comes from toxic hazardous & harmful chemicals in the environment. Here you can submit the manuscripts which would be checked under a strict Peer-Review process before any publication. This is generally done to ensure that any literature published in the journal is scientifically correct.
