Environmental and 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 and 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.

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.

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.

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.
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 have been banned by the United States Congress in 1979 due to its toxicity and carcinogenic property.

Green energy is renewable, non-polluting energy and more environmentally friendly. It comes from natural sources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, plants, algae and geothermal heat. These energy resources are renewable, meaning they're naturally replenished. Green energy can replace fossil fuels.
The amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) releases with all the activities of a person or other entity (e.g., building, corporation, country, etc.). It is calculation of emissions of greenhouse gases caused directly and indirectly by an organisation or company and those that result from fossil-fuel combustion in manufacturing, heating, and transportation, as well as emissions required to produce the electricity associated with goods and services consumed. In addition, the carbon footprint concept also often includes the emissions of other greenhouse gases, such as methane, nitrous oxide, or chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs).
