Snake venoms are a mixture of hydrolases which produce complex pathogenesis such as bleeding, dermo/ myonecrosis, inflammation and coagulation disorders. The toxicity of venoms cannot be attributed to only one component. It is well known that venom components present antagonist activities, while some of them work synergistically. Binding to their intra- and extra-cellular or molecular targets, leads these components to generate severe disturbances which might concern several systems through complex mechanisms. Some of these mechanisms are still not yet elucidated. Thus, some of these components can act at different steps of blood coagulation by activating or inhibiting several molecular or cellular targets thereby inducing blood disorders. Despite their effects, it is well established that some of components from snake venoms present beneficial effects when acting alone as purified entity. Appropriate treatments of snakebite victims need a complete understanding of the pharmacological roles of the different venom components.

In the growing environment, they are many journals in various organisations. Only a very few journals maintain high standards in terms of the content they publish, one has to be careful while picking information as content that is not reliable and untrue can be harmful to research as well as society. Generally, journals can be rated by considering impact factor, reputation of authors, editorial board members and also in terms of the fee they charge. Only high indexing journals have quality articles. Entomology, Ornithology and Herpetology: Current Research is one of the best journals which publish quality articles. Entomology, Ornithology and Herpetology are a wide range of area that deals with different aspects. It publishes original research, review, short communication, case report, mini review etc.
