|Toxicology is a field of medicinal chemistry dealing with adverse effects of different substances on human systems. Human toxicity is one of the most discussed and focussed field of research for scientific community. The effect of various substances on humans depends on factors such as route of exposure, dosage of exposure, time etc. The intensity of toxic effect also varies from species to species. Journal of clinical Toxicology is a peer reviewed journal that deals with various clinical aspects of toxicity such as drug toxicity, poisons, and risk assessment of various drugs as well as different toxicology testing methods.
The impact factor of journal provides quantitative assessment tool for grading, evaluating, sorting and comparing journals of similar kind. It reflects the average number of citations to recent articles published in science and social science journals in a particular year or period, and is frequently used as a proxy for the relative importance of a journal within its field. It is first devised by Eugene Garfield, the founder of the Institute for Scientific Information. The impact factor of a journal is evaluated by dividing the number of current year citations to the source items published in that journal during the previous two years.
