SOFT Special Issue of the Journal of Analytical Toxicology

Submit your manuscript at and designate the manuscript for the SOFT Special Issue.

Greetings. The Journal of Analytical Toxicology (JAT) is the official journal of the Society of Forensic Toxicologists (SOFT). Each year JAT produces a special issue that coincides with the SOFT annual meeting. I would like to remind fellow toxicologists that the time to plan for the 2017 SOFT meeting in Boca Raton, Florida, is fast approaching and so are the deadlines for abstract and manuscript submissions for the 2017 JAT Special Issue. Publishing peer-review articles is the key to disseminating information within the scientific community. I implore you to participate in this important process by submitting a manuscript for consideration and/or by serving as a reviewer. The submitted manuscripts will be carefully reviewed for novelty, technical quality and scientific design. All manuscripts accepted for the special issue with a SOFT member as the first author are eligible for the 2017 Experimental Design and Impact on Toxicology (EDIT) Award. This prestigious annual award recognizes the lead author of the manuscript selected for its outstanding scientific content and impact on forensic toxicology. Please be advised that the timeline for the review and revision of the manuscripts for the special issue is tight, hence timely participation is essential. This issue will be doubly special as we will be holding a joint meeting of SOFT and the International Association of Forensic Toxicologists (TIAFT). I would like to thank the incoming president, Dr. Goldberger, for the great honor of allowing me to serve as the guest editor for 2017. I look forward to receiving many valuable contributions to the literature of forensic toxicology.
