Aims and scope
Particle and Fibre Toxicology is a multi-disciplinary journal focused on understanding the physical properties and the chemistry of particles and fibres in relation to exposure in general and workplace environments and the resulting adverse human health effects (toxicity).
Particle and Fibre Toxicology is an open access, peer-reviewed journal functioning as a forum for debate and communication among toxicologists, as well as scientists from other disciplines that produce and develop particle and fibre materials, including material sciences, biomaterials, and nanomedicine. In addition, there are diverse scenarios where particles may pose a toxicological threat due to new applications of old materials or introduction of new materials. The journal provides a single, identifiable outlet for all these disciplines.Read more
