Publications and Historical Documents

This page contains documents and publications that date to the Society’s founding in 1961. Beyond the publications available below, in 1986, Harry W. Hays, PhD, the SOT historian at the time, compiled Society of Toxicology History 1961–1986. Special publications also were produced for the Society’s 50th anniversary in 2011.

Each year, the science presented at the SOT Annual Meeting and ToxExpo is compiled into two main publications: the Program and The Toxicologist. The Program contains the complete meeting schedule and Scientific Session abstracts. The Toxicologist and The Toxicologist: Late Breaking Supplement are supplements to Toxicological Sciences, the Society’s official journal, and contain all abstracts presented at the Annual Meeting and ToxExpo. PDFs of these publications are available below and you can use The Toxicologist online database to search the records from 2003 to the present.
