Associate Professor Scott Garrett, PhD, in the Department of Pathology, was recently chosen to be the editor of the Americas and Japan for the journal Toxicology Letters, published by Elsevier. This journal has a total of three co-editors-in-chief, handles over 1,000 submissions, publishes just over 300 papers per year, has an Impact Factor of 3.355, and is the official journal of EUROTOX (Federation of European Toxicologists & European Societies of Toxicology).

Toxicology Letters serves as a multidisciplinary forum for research in toxicology, an aspect of Garrett’s research that involves the toxicology of arsenic and cadmium. The journal’s audience consists of toxicologists, pharmacologists, cancer researchers, and epidemiologists. The prime aim is the rapid publication of research studies that are novel and advance the understanding of a broad range of topics in toxicology from clinical, occupational, and safety evaluation to legal, risk, and hazard assessment, with an enhanced focus on mechanisms of mammalian toxicology. The journal also publishes mini-reviews, editorials, commentaries, and contemporary issues in toxicology.
