Springer and the American College of Medical Toxicology (ACMT) have signed an agreement to collaborate on the publication of the Journal of Medical Toxicology (JMT), the official journal of the ACMT, beginning in March 2010. It was previously published by the University of Pennsylvania Press.
The Journal of Medical Toxicology, an international, peer-reviewed journal, is dedicated to advancing the science and practice of medical toxicology. The quarterly journal focuses on the diagnosis, management, and prevention of poisoning, toxicity and other adverse health effects resulting from medications, chemicals, occupational and environmental substances, and biological hazards. JMT publishes original articles, illustrative cases, review articles and other special features. Christian A. Tomaszewski of the University of California San Diego Medical Center is Editor-in-Chief.
Leslie R. Dye, Managing Editor and Associate Editor of JMT and a Board Member of the American College of Medical Toxicology, said, "We are thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Springer, one of the giants in medical and academic publishing. One of the most significant advantages is Springer's ability to disseminate JMT to libraries throughout the world through its many national and international consortia agreements. JMT's greater availability in libraries through SpringerLink will significantly increase its readership, as well as its impact factors, with the goal of securing more high-quality submissions."
Michael D. Weston, Senior Editor of Biomedical Engineering at Springer, said, ""We are pleased the American College of Medical Toxicology chose Springer to publish the Journal of Medical Toxicology. The leadership of ACMT and the journal editor, managing editor, editorial board members and authors have created a well-respected journal in just a few years. Springer's global presence and expertise in the electronic marketplace will aid the College's mission of advancing the care of poisoned patients worldwide. We look forward to a fruitful collaboration with ACMT to further develop the journal as the primary source for trusted research in medical toxicology."
