The November 2018, Vol 166, Issue 1 of Toxicological Sciences includes remarks by Editor-in-Chief Gary W. Miller on the importance of transparency in research. Dr. Miller notes that:
"The topic of transparency has been in the news recently. I wanted to take this opportunity to remind readers of how we view transparency at Toxicological Sciences. We believe scientists should make their protocols and data as transparent as reasonably possible. We have provided platforms for the sharing of raw data, files, and code. We have made it permissible for authors to post preprints to make their work available to the community as quickly as possible. We recognized the importance of openness and our authors have been moving in the right direction on a voluntary basis. I encourage all authors to embrace this new level of openness. It is good for science. It is good for toxicology. I encourage you to look inside ToxSci for the most influential (and open) research in the field of toxicology."
In this issue of ToxSci, you also will find Editor's Highlights prepared by four Associate Editors. These include Helmut Zarbl on Androgen Receptor HTS, Anumantha G. Kanthasamy on Screening for Astrocyte Senescence; Allison H. Harrill on SeqAPASS for Cross-Species Prediction; and Kristine L. Willet on Gas Extraction and Amphibian Health.
The mission of Toxicological Sciences, the official journal of the Society of Toxicology, is to publish the most influential research in the field of toxicology.
