Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology(JOMT) is an Open Access, peer-reviewed, online journal that considers original research related to the field of occupational medicine and toxicology.

JOMT is aimed at clinicians and researchers in the wide-ranging discipline of occupational medicine and toxicology. The field is devoted to the diagnosis, prevention, management and scientific analysis of occupational diseases, injuries and disability; it also covers the promotion of health of workers, their families, and communities. In the era of heavy industries, occupational medicine was known as "industrial medicine" with a focus on acute medical care for injured employees. The complexity of modern industrial processes has changed the field and today the areas covered by occupational medicine include effects of atmospheric pollution, carcinogenesis, biological monitoring, ergonomics, epidemiology, product safety, and health promotion.

The field of occupational medicine and toxicology is not static and the demand for studies addressing the large variety of current issues continues to grow. In view of this demand and the fact that the majority of occupational medicine and toxicology studies are currently published by journals of related fields such as pulmonary medicine, oncology or allergy, there is a need for a high-quality journal in this field. JOMT aims to provide this, with the important features of being an Open Access journal with an open peer review policy, and rapid publication process without major space limitations.

Content overview

Journal of Occupational Medicine and Toxicology considers the following types of articles:

  • Research: reports of data from original research.
  • Reviews: comprehensive, authoritative descriptions of any subject within the scope of JOMT. These articles are usually written by opinion leaders that have been invited by the Editorial Board.
  • Short reports: brief reports of data from original research.
  • Methodology articles: present a new experimental method, test or procedure. The method described may either be completely new, or may offer a better version of an existing method.
  • Case reports: reports of clinical cases that can be educational, describe a diagnostic or therapeutic dilemma, suggest an association, or present an important adverse reaction.
  • Commentaries: short, focused and opinionated articles on any subject within the scope of the journal. These articles are usually related to a contemporary issue, such as recent research findings, and are often written by opinion leaders invited by the Editorial Board. These should be limited to 1000 words in length.
  • Debate articles: present an argument that is not essentially based on practical research. Debate articles can report on all aspects of the subject including sociological and ethical aspects.
  • Hypothesis: short articles presenting an untested original hypothesis backed solely by previously published results rather than any new evidence. They should outline significant progress in thinking that would also be testable.
  • Software articles: describe the source code for software applications, tools or algorithm implementations.
  • Study protocols: describe proposed or ongoing research, providing a detailed account of the hypothesis, rationale, and methodology of the study.
