Peer Review Process

Toxicology Digest ensures an objective and quick peer review process, with a targeted maximum paper turnaround time of three weeks.  All manuscripts are subjected to an internal Editorial review process for conformity with the scope of the journal and guidelines for submitted manuscripts. Articles are then subjected to a blind review by an odd number of reviewers, usually three. The double-blind review process ensures that the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other’s identity. The journal’s editorial advisers and peer reviewers are provided with a structured peer review assessment form aimed at achieving an objective review. Academics interested in becoming editorial advisers and peer reviewers should send their expression of intent with a brief profile by email to
