Mycotoxicology Society of Nigeria

Aims and Scope

Mycotoxicology is the official scientific publication of the Mycotoxicology Society of Nigeria (MSN). It is a peer-reviewed scientific journal with specific focus on the promotion of the science of mycotoxins. It covers a diverse, interdisciplinary range of topics that is unique in breadth and depth.The journal contains original research papers, critical reviews in all areas that concern mycotoxins and case reports highlighting important developments in the fields of medical and veterinary mycotoxicology.

The journal takes a multidisciplinary approach and it focuses on issues related to mycotoxins, including toxicology, risk assessment, occurrence, modelling and prediction of toxin formation, genomics, molecular biology for control of mycotoxigenic fungi, pre-and post-harvest prevention and control, sampling, analytical methodology and quality assurance, food technology, economics and regulatory issues.

Mycotoxicology is intended to serve the needs of researchers and professionals from the scientific community and industry, as well as of policy makers and regulators. Specific areas covers by the journal are: The economic impact of mycotoxins, Information on major mycotoxins and emerging problems in the food and feed chain, Human and animal nutrition and health effects due to mycotoxins, Latest discoveries in mycotoxin toxicology and toxicokinetics, Strategies for pre- and postharvest prevention and control, application of genomics in mycotoxin research, molecular biology for control of mycotoxigenic fungi, decontamination and detoxification solutions for mycotoxins, new developments in mycotoxin sampling analysis and analytical quality assurance, including reference materials, and cases of occurrence and exposure to mycotoxins.
