When our editorial team started discussing the 20th anniversary of Toxicological Sciences, I had two thoughts. The first was that 20 years didn’t seem like a very long time when compared with some of the journals that have existed for over a century. The second thought was that with the explosion of journals in the last several years, 20 years is now a rather mature academic journal. Of course, Toxicological Sciences has a slightly longer history. The earlier iteration, Fundamental and Applied Toxicology, started in 1981. Thus, when Toxicological Sciences was launched under Dr. Curtis Klaassen’s leadership 20 years ago, it wasn’t starting from scratch. Dr. Lois Lehman-McKeeman shepherded the journal through an incredible phase of growth. It has been under the watchful eye of the Society of Toxicology (SOT) for years and continues that important relationship. Indeed, the most notable feature of our journal is its longstanding connection with the SOT. No other toxicology journal can claim an association with a society as large as SOT. (More)

Moreover, in this issue there are four Editor's Highlights prepared by ToxSci Associate Editors on Fragrances and Skin Allergies, Paige Lawrence; Mixture Testing for Reproductive Toxicants, Barbara Hales; IncRNAs and Lead Neurotoxicity, Anumantha Kanthasamy; and Nanomaterial Toxicity Screening in Yeast, Alison Harrill.    

The mission of ToxSci, the official journal of the Society of Toxicology, is to publish the most influential research in the field of toxicology.
