About Toxicological Sciences

ToxSci Logo

The Society’s official journal, Toxicological Sciences (ToxSci), is one of the Society’s core programs and key elements in pursuing its mission. Through ToxSci, the Society publishes and shares important and exemplary work and commentary related to toxicology.

With a new issue produced each month, free or discounted access to the manuscripts in ToxSci is a valued benefit of SOT membership.

Toxicological Sciences began its life as Fundamental and Applied Toxicology in January 1981 and assumed its current moniker in January 1998 with Volume 41, Issue 1. Upon that occasion, Editor-in-Chief Curtis D. Klaassen, PhD, wrote his inaugural editorial for ToxSci, that the journal would “publish premier manuscripts in all areas of toxicology … . Our goal is to make Toxicological Sciences the best toxicology journal in the world.” That work continues today with the journal’s current mission to “publish a broad spectrum of impactful research in the field of toxicology.”

The content and publication of ToxSci is overseen by its Editor-in-Chief Jeffrey M. Peters, PhD, and Deputy Editors Alison H. Harrill, PhD, and Kristine “Kristie” Willett, PhD, alongside the journal’s Associate Editors, Editorial Board, and the SOT Board of Publications. The Society is grateful for their service.
