From the Editors
August 1 marks Hugh Tilson's last day as Editor-in-Chief of EHP. We are pleased to announce that Jane Schroeder, EHP’s Science Editor, will be acting as interim Editor-in-Chief until the position is filled permanently. We thank Hugh for his years of leadership and wish him the best in his retirement (although he'll be back in September to share responsibilities with Jane during the interim period).
New Impact Factor
We are pleased to announce our new impact factor of 7.03 and—for the first time—our inclusion in the category of Toxicology. Thank you to our authors and readers, who continue to make EHP a leading journal in Environmental Sciences, in Public, Environmental, and Occupational Health, and now in Toxicology.
