Environmental Toxicology and Health latest research section to launch in UN Sustainable Development Goals focused journal, All Life
All Life, a journal revolutionising how authors are publishing research across reproducible life sciences with Taylor & Francis, today extends its ever-growing portfolio with the introduction of a new section – Environmental Toxicology and Health.
Since its launch in March 2020, the new multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary Open Access title, All Life, has attracted more than 235,000 views.
The journal uses the UN Sustainable Development Goals as a framework to bring together all experts to foster better collaboration and information sharing across the life sciences. As a fully Open Access journal, it serves the ever-growing expansion of multi- and inter-disciplinary research in the life sciences.
The latest topic of which is Environmental Toxicology and Health. This new section, launching today, will publish rigorously peer-reviewed research covering environmental health, ecotoxicology, immunotoxicity and associated subject areas.
Alike with each section of All Life, Environmental Toxicology and Health will further the drive for reproducibility by accepting submissions of negative/null data as well as replication and reproduction studies. Each section of All Life, too, involves publishing via a thorough peer-review process led by subject experts. Dr Robin Mesnage will be this expert for the Environmental Toxicology and Health section.
Dr Mesnage is a toxicologist in the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics at King’s College London. His research focus over the last 10 years has been on the safety evaluation of pesticides. He has published more than 50 scientific articles on the subject and specializes in using molecular profiling and genomic science to improve the sensitivity of chemical toxicity testing and better predict health risks arising from pesticide exposure.
Commenting on the launch of this latest section and his leadership of the area, Dr Mesnage said: “I’m delighted to join the pool of experts in the All Life family to launch the Environmental Toxicology and Health section. We will work together to disseminate accessible and trustworthy research that has an impact on – as its name suggests – all life.”
He added: “In particular, I am looking forward to establishing the publication of the highest quality of peer-reviewed research which will help to tackle the vital UN Sustainable Development Goals towards Goal 3: Good Health and Well-Being, Goal 6: Clean Water and Sanitation, Goal 12: Responsible Consumption and Production, Goal 14: Life Below Water, and Goal 15: Life on Land.
“Each All Life article published in these areas will be crucial in helping to piece together the puzzle to fix the wider greater issues and largest challenges facing us today such as epidemic of chronic diseases and environmental pollution damaging ecosystems. Crucially, the way in which it will be published will offer every reader unrestricted Open Access and therefore true transparency with findings that are clearly presented and technical information clearly explained.”
As a publication focused on fostering cross-discipline collaboration, All Life is open to receiving research which brings different perspectives to a problem. For Environmental Toxicology and Health the subject areas of particular focus include:
- Environmental Health
- Anthropogenic Chemicals
- Endocrine Disruption
- Risk Assessment
- Occupational Health
- Exposure Assessment
- Mechanistics Toxicology
- Pollutant Toxicology
- Pesticide Toxicology
