PFAA Days III
A Call for Papers for PFAA Special Issues
The editors and publishers of the Reproductive Toxicology and Environmental Science & Technology publications have both agreed to publish special focus issues that highlight the materials presented at the U.S. EPA's PFAA Days III Symposium held at Research Triangle Park, NC from June 8 - 10, 2010. Any manuscripts related to poster or platform presentations made at this meeting will be considered for publication in one of these special editions.
Research papers related to characterization of PFAA toxicity, elucidation of their modes and mechanisms of actions, description of pharmacokinetics and modeling, epidemiology, and human health risk analysis are encouraged to be submitted to Reproductive Toxicology.
Papers for the Environmental Science & Technology focus issue should consider topics that involve fate and transport, reactivity, water and wastewater treatment, risk and exposure assessment in the environmental media, ecological toxicity, epidemiology, human and environmental health.
At the time of publication the editors may also include other PFAA-related submissions to compliment the topics covered at the PFAA Days III Symposium. When submitting manuscripts to Reproductive Toxicology or Environmental Science & Technology, authors should indicate in their cover letter that it is intended for the PFAA Days III special focus issue. All manuscripts must be submitted by the end of October 2010 for peer review. Manuscripts accepted for publication will be available on line immediately for both journals. The print edition of the PFAA special issues will be released no later than April 2011 for Reproductive Toxicology and October 2011 for Environmental Science & Technology.
