Issue 5 now online!

Graphical AbstractThe front cover of issue 5 features artwork by  Shao-Chen Sun from Nanjing Agricultural University. With his colleagues, Shao-Chen explored possible mechanisms for the toxic effects of ZEN on pig oocytes. They cultured porcine oocytes to maturation in media with different ZEN concentrations (5–30 μM), after which they analyzed oocyte oxidative stress status, autophagy, early apoptosis, and epigenetic modifications by immunofluorescence, quantitative real-time PCR analysis and western blot approaches.

Toxicology Research 2014 Impact Factor

Toxicology Research 2014 Impact Factor is 3.98We are pleased to announce that the latest Impact Factor* for Toxicology Research is 3.98, according to the 2014 Journal Citation Reports ® (JCR). This is the first full Impact Factor for the Journal, placing us in the Top Ten of the JCR “toxicology” subject category.

We would like to thank all of our authors, referees, Editorial Board and Advisory Board for their contributions to the success of the Journal.

Click here to find out how other Royal Society of Chemistry journals performed in the latest Impact Factor release.

*The Impact Factor provides an indication of the average number of citations per paper. Produced annually, Impact Factors are calculated by dividing the number of citations in a year by the number of citeable articles published in the preceding two years.
