Q&A with Prof. Edson Maistro
Editorial Board, Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A
Prof. Marcelo Farina
Departamento de Bioquímica, Universidade Federal de Santa Catarina
What attracted you to take up the position of Deputy Editor for Journal of Toxicology and Environmental Health, Part A (JTEH, Part A)?
I published some articles in the Journal, after which Editor Dr. Sam Kacew invited me to be part of the team.
What sets this journal apart from its rival journals and why would you recommend authors submit their research?
Quiet simply because the analysis and publishing process is fast; there are no publication fees; the reviewers are good; the impact factor of the Journal is good.
