SETAC Journal coversShould SETAC Journals Move to a Double-blind Peer Review Process?
Chris Mebane
Peer review is one of the most important factors distinguishing published journal articles from gray literature. The peer review imprimatur signals to the readers that the material received impartial, expert reviews prior to being published and is likely to be credible.

Environmental risk assessment relies on data and models to assess the likelihood that adverse effects to humans or ecosystems may occur as a result of exposure to one or more stressors. Unfortunately, the ability to provide timely and cost effective risk assessment for many chemicals is limited by a lack of available toxicity data for a vast majority of compounds.

SETAC members who have recently graduated and are starting their career paths are a valuable presence at society meetings. However, because many new employees have not developed sufficient tenure in their organizations, travel funds can be a barrier to attending. The SETAC North America Recent Graduate Travel Award is available to help recent graduates attend the SETAC North America 39th Annual Meeting.
