Toxicology Letters serves as a multidisciplinary forum for research in all areas of toxicology. The prime aim is rapid publication of research letters with sufficient importance, novelty and breadth of interest. In addition to research letters, papers presenting hypotheses and commentaries addressing current issues of immediate interest to other investigators are invited. Mini-reviews in various areas of toxicology will also be published. A new feature is the provision of a forum for the discussion and interpretation of data published in the journal. Clinical, occupational and safety evaluation, legal, risk and hazard assessment, impact on man and environment studies of sufficient novelty to warrant rapid publication will be considered. The final pages of each issue will provide information on forthcoming meetings, symposia and workshops.
