Environmental Toxicology Studies Journal is a peer-reviewed, open access publication that documents and disseminates biological, industrial, clinical, and technological toxins that may affect the environment in various ways. The main motto of the journal is to provide a platform for the environmental scientists, NGOs, activists and the organizations engaged in environmental research or the one that advocates toxic free environment to discuss the way the natural and manmade toxins influence environment.
The study areas of the Environmental Toxicology Studies Journal’s include topics that may minimize or mitigate environmental toxicity like Ecotoxicology, Bioaccumulation, Polychlorinated biphenyls(PCBs), Toxicants, Biomagnification, Computational toxicology, Toxicogenomics, Toxinology, Persistent organic pollutant, In vitro toxicology, Chelation therapy, Environmental Disasters, ,and Modes of toxic action.
A branch of science derived from toxicology which combines ecology and toxicology, focusing on the adverse effects of toxics or chemicals at organisms levels i.e. population, community, ecosystem, and biosphere. Exposure of toxicants can affect individuals and population by direct killing, change in genetic makeup, affects biological systems of the body, alter mutation rate, migration rate etc. Predator-prey relationships affect at community level. Ecotoxicology can affect everything and everyone in an ecosystem.

Bioaccumulation is the gradual accumulation of harmful substances, such as pesticides, or other chemicals in an organism. Bioaccumulation Occurs due to faster absorption of toxic chemical by organisms or may be due to slower rate of catabolism.

PCBs are the synthetic organic compounds. They have been used in electric equipment such as transformers and capacitors as an insulating material and also plasticizers in paints, plastics and rubber products pigments, dyes and carbonless copy paper. PCBs has been banned by the United States Congress in 1979 due to its toxicity and carcinogenic property.
Journals related to Polychlorinated Biphenyls (PCBs)
Toxicants are the man-made harmful substances such as insecticides and many other industrial chemicals which are released to the environment by human activities. Carcinogens, Mutagens, Allergens, Neurotoxin and Endocrine disrupters are the different types of toxicants. Exposure to toxicants can have long term health impacts among organisms. The effect of toxicants on the environment is determined by the amount of the chemical that is released, the type and concentration of the chemical, and where it is found.

The process of increasing toxic substances or contaminants including heavy metals such as mercury, arsenic, pesticides such as DDT, and polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs) compounds in the tissues of organisms at successively higher levels in a food chain. The reasons causes biomagnification are when the toxic chemical cannot be broken down and remain in the environment, moves through food chains among different organisms and very low excretion.

The branch of science that relates toxicology to the molecular biology. it a wide field which helps to understand genomics or other high throughput molecular profiling technologies such as transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics in relation with toxicology. The complexity in data makes the use of highly developed processes of automated handling and storage with the help of bioinformatics and statistics. It has been widely used in pharmaceutics to study the harmful effects of drugs.

POPs are the harmful organic compounds that remain in the environment for the longer duration. They cannot be eliminated because of resistant to degradation. They can transport by air, water and within ecosystem via food chain or food web. Insecticides, pesticides, Polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), Dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (DDT), Polychlorinated dibenzofurans, Dioxinsetc are the common (POPs) which causes major health effects among humans.

Physiological and behavioral signs that distinguish toxicants or pollutants according to their type of toxic response are known as modes of toxic action. They have application in ecotoxicology and aquatic toxicology. Non-specific acting modes of toxic action result in narcosis while specific acting modes of toxic action produce a specific action at a specific target site. It helps to protect the environment from adverse effects.
