Environmental Analysis, Health and Toxicology (EAHT) is an official journal of the Korean Society of Environmental Health and Toxicology (KOSEHT) and the Korean Society for Environmental Analysis (KSFEA), and provides high quality scientific information on environmental analysis, health and toxicology–chemicals in the various environmental media and related effects on human and ecosystem health, specific areas including chemical and biological analysis of environmental contamination, ecotoxicology and risk assessment, environmental chemistry, human toxicology and risk assessment, environmental epidemiology, environmental exposure assessment, to encourage research, policy development and education on these fields. Contributions of original articles, systemic reviews, meeting or conference reports, brief reports, case reports, investigation reports, special topics, perspectives, editorials, letters to the editor and responses, and debates are welcome.
EAHT is an open access electronic journal publishing peer-reviewed articles. The journal publishes four issues a year (on the last day of March, June, September, and December). Once an article is accepted, it will subsequently be published in both fully browsable web form and as a formatted PDF. The article will then be available through EAHT website (https://www.eaht.org) and also indexed in Scopus (https://www.scopus.com/), PubMed (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/), PubMed Central (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/), Google Scholar (https://scholar.google.com/), KoreaMed (https://koreamed.org/), and Science Central (https://www.e-sciencecentral.org).

Scientific integrity: research and publication ethics

EAHT follows the Guidelines on Good Publication (http://publicationethics.org/) or Good Publication Practice Guidelines for Medical Journals of the Korean Association of Medical Journal Editors (http://kamje.or.kr). Authors must perform the research in accordance with principles of the Declaration of Helsinki(https://www.wma.net/policies-post/wma-declaration-of-helsinki-ethical-principles-for-medical-research-involving-human-subjects/).

1. Conflict of interest statement

Conflict of interest exists when an author (or the author’s institution), reviewer, or editor has financial or personal relationships that inappropriately influence (bias) his or her actions (such relationships are also known as dual commitments, competing interests, or competing loyalties). These relationships vary from being negligible to having great potential for influencing judgment. Not all relationships represent true conflict of interest. On the other hand, the potential for conflict of interest can exist regardless of whether an individual believes that the relationship affects his or her scientific judgment. Financial relationships (such as employment, consultancies, stock ownership, honoraria, and paid expert testimony) are the most easily identifiable conflicts of interest and the most likely to undermine the credibility of the journal, the authors, and of science itself. However, conflicts can occur for other reasons, such as personal relationships, academic competition, and intellectual passion (http://icmje.org/ethical_4conflicts.html). If there are any conflicts of interest, authors should disclose them in the manuscript. The conflicts of interest may occur during research process; however, important point is the disclosure itself. If there is a disclosure, editors, reviewers, and reader can approach the manuscripts after understanding the situation where the research work was processed.

2. Statement of human and animal rights, informed consent and institutional review board approval

Human research should be done in accordance of the Ethical Principles for Medical Research Involving Human Subjects, outlined in the Helsinki Declaration of 1975 (revised 2013), available from: https://www.wma.net/policies-post/wma-declaration-of-helsinki-ethical-principles-for-medical-research-involving-human-subjects/. Clinical studies that do not meet the Helsinki Declaration will not be considered for publication. Human subjects should not be identifiable, such that patients’ names, initials, hospital numbers, dates of birth, or other protected healthcare information should not be disclosed. For animal subjects, research should be performed based on the National or Institutional Guide for the Care and Use of Laboratory Animals, and the ethical treatment of all experimental animals should be maintained. Copies of written informed consents should be kept for studies on human subjects. For the clinical and epidemiological studies of human subjects, there should be a certificate, agreement, or approval by the institutional review board (IRB). Approval and compliance with research requirements regarding human subjects must be noted, and information regarding informed consent procedures must be described in the “Methods” section of manuscripts concerning human subjects research. Authors should assure in the “Methods” section of manuscript that animals used in a study have been treated humanely and with regard for the alleviation of suffering, and that the protocol was approved by an institutional animal care and use committee.

3. Registration of the clinical trial research

Any research that deals with clinical trial should be registered to the primary national clinical trial registration site such as Korea Clinical Research Information Service (http://cris.nih.go.kr), other primary national registry sites accredited by World Health Organization (https://www.who.int/clinical-trials-registry-platform/network/primary/en) or ClinicalTrials.gov (https://www.clinicaltrials.gov/), a service of the US National Institutes of Health.

4. Authorship

Each author should have participated sufficiently in the work to take public responsibility for appropriate portions of the content and should meet the authorship criteria of the Uniform Requirement for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals (http://icmje.org/ethical_1author.html). One or more authors should take responsibility for the integrity of the work as a whole, from inception to published article. Authorship credit should be based only on: 1) substantial contributions to conception and design, acquisition of data, or analysis and interpretation of data; 2) drafting the article or revising it critically for important intellectual content; 3) final approval of the version to be published; and 4) agreeing to be accountable for all aspects of the work in ensuring that the questions related to the accuracy or integrity of any part of the work are appropriately investigated and resolved. Authors should meet these 4 conditions. If the number of authors is greater than 6, there should be a list of each author’s role for the submitted paper. If any persons who do not meet above 4 criteria, they may be placed as contributors in Acknowledgements section. The addition of an author to a manuscript under review is possible only with the editor’s approval. Changes in authorship cannot be made after the manuscript is accepted for publication. Multiple first authors can be accepted if corresponding author believes that the authors contributed equally while co-corresponding authors are not allowed.

5. Originality and duplicate publication

Contributions submitted to EAHT must be original works of the author(s) and must not have been previously published in print or online or simultaneously submitted to another publication. Dissertations/theses are not regarded as prior publication. Presentation of original results prior to publication at scientific meetings is generally encouraged. The contents published as the proceedings or presentations in academic conference but not as the whole papers can be submitted to EAHT. EAHT supports posting of research articles on not-for-profit preprint servers such as arXiv.org, bioRxiv.org, ChemRxiv.org, medRxiv.org, and the like. Distribution on the Internet in other ways may be considered prior publication. Authors should send related materials (published, in press or in reviewing) with the submitted manuscript to the editorial board. It is mandatory for all authors to resolve any copyright and plagiarism issues when citing a figure or table from a different journal that is not open access.

6. Secondary publication

It is possible to republish manuscripts if the manuscripts satisfy the condition of secondary publication of the Uniform Requirements for Manuscripts Submitted to Biomedical Journals by International Committee of Medical Journal Editors’, available from: http://www.icmje.org/publishing_4overlap.html as followings: Certain types of articles, such as guidelines produced by governmental agencies and professional organizations, may need to reach the widest possible audience. In such instances, editors sometimes deliberately publish material that is also being published in other journals, with the agreement of the authors and the editors of those journals. Secondary publication for various other reasons, in the same or another language, especially in other countries, is justifiable and can be beneficial provided that the following conditions are met. The authors have received approval from the editors of both journals (the editor concerned with secondary publication must have a photocopy, reprint, or manuscript of the primary version). The priority of the primary publication is respected by a publication interval of at least one week (unless specifically negotiated otherwise by both editors). The paper for secondary publication is intended for a different group of readers; an abbreviated version could be sufficient. The secondary version faithfully reflects the data and interpretations of the primary version.
The footnote on the title page of the secondary version informs readers, peers, and documenting agencies that the paper has been published in whole or in part and states the primary reference. A suitable footnote might read: “This article is based on a study first reported in the [title of journal, with full reference].” Permission for such secondary publication should be free of charge. The title of the secondary publication should indicate that it is a secondary publication (complete republication, abridged republication, complete translation, or abridged translation) of a primary publication.

7. Process to manage the research and publication misconduct

When the Journal faces suspected cases of research and publication misconduct such as redundant (duplicate) publication, plagiarism, fabricated data, changes in authorship, undisclosed conflict of interest, ethical problem with a submitted manuscript, a reviewer who has appropriated an author’s idea or data, complaints against editors, etc., the resolving process will be followed by flowchart provided by the Committee on Publication Ethics (https://publicationethics.org/guidance/Flowcharts). The discussion and decision on the suspected cases are done by editorial board.

Preparation of manuscript

Manuscripts written in English are accepted. Manuscripts should include abstract, key words, manuscript body, acknowledgements, references, tables and figures if any. Authors should use an MS word template file to prepare the manuscript. The template file is available at https://eaht.org. A cover letter is required and attached to the on-line submission system. Supplementary data to the manuscript could be submitted separately.

1. Cover letter

You should supply an approximately one-page cover letter that:

  • Concisely summarizes why your paper is a valuable addition to the scientific literature
  • Briefly relates your study to previous published work
  • Specifies the type of article you are submitting (ex, original article, review, brief report, etc.)
  • Describes any prior interactions with EAHT regarding the submitted manuscript
  • 2. Title, authors and their affiliations

    Specification of study design in the manuscript title is recommended. The first letter in the first word should be written with capital letters in manuscript title, authors’ name and their affiliations. The abbreviations should not be used in the manuscript title.

Affiliation should indicate institutional affiliation, address, city, zip code and country.
    Multiple authors should be numbered at the ends of the names, like 1, 2, 3 as a superscription, and also numbered with the same numbers in front of their affiliations. Authors’ names should be listed with “,” in between. If author’s current affiliations are different from those at the time the study performing, write the past affiliation first followed by the current one. Do not use abbreviations in names of authors and affiliations. Open Researcher and Contributor IDs (ORCIDs) of all authors are recommended to be present and the corresponding author should be indicated.

    3. Abstract

    Abstracts should appear on a separate page and be no more than 300 words in length, and describe concisely, in a paragraph the objectives, methods, important results, and derived conclusions of the study are included in an unstructured format. For original articles, systemic reviews, meta-analysis, meeting or conference reports, brief reports, investigation reports, special topics, case reports, perspectives and hypothesis should provide an unstructured abstract. No abstract is required for editorials, letters to the editor and responses, and debates. References should not be included in abstracts and abbreviations should be used sparingly.

    4. Key words

    8. Tables and figures

    The use of tables, figures, and photographs that supplement the text are recommended but should not duplicate material found in the body of the manuscript. Tables and figures should be presented in English and prepared with separate files. They should be placed at approximate locations in the manuscript body. Titles for tables and figures should be self-explanatory with the first word written with an upper case letter and the rest in lower case letters. The same principle is applied to the content of a table or figure. Tables are prepared with no horizontal or vertical dividing lines. Each table and figure should be presented in a separate page and do not exceed one page for each as possible. If the table covers more than one page, note “(continued)” at the end of title of the successive tables. Explanations for and abbreviations used in tables and figures are included as footnotes. Footnotes are indicated by superscript numbers in alphabetical order (a,b,c,...). All numbers should be expressed to 2 digits to the right of the decimal points after rounding, otherwise specified. A p-value may be indicated as follows in the footnotes: +p<0.1, *p<0.05, **p<0.01, ***p<0.001.

    Authors must submit illustrations on electronic files. Each figure must be in a good quality higher than 300 dpi resolution with good contrast and sharpness.

    9. Abbreviations

    All non-standard abbreviations (organochlorine pesticides [OCPs], limit of detection [LOD], polymerase chain reaction [PCR]) and chemical compounds (e.g., polychlorinated biphenyls, PCBs; carbon dioxide, CO2) should be defined in the text on first use and abbreviated thereafter. Do not use non-standard unit of measure as possible. The names of chemical compounds should be met the rule of nomenclature of the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). Use generic name rather than brand name unless the brand name itself is important for the study purposes. Use Arabic number for all numbers, small p for probability, % for percentage, meter for length, ˚C for temperature, mmHg for blood pressure, and g/dL for hemoglobin. Follow the methods (meter, kilogram, liter) of the International System of Units (SI units), otherwise specified. Let a space in between the measured number and unit.

    ORCID of all authors are recommended to be provided. To have ORCID, authors should register in the ORCID web site available from: https://orcid.org/. Registration is free to every researchers in the world.

    Type of manuscript

    - Original articles present scientific research and discovery in the field of environmental analysis, health and toxicology. The main text must follow the standard EAHT format, with Introduction and separate sections for Methods, Results and Discussion.

    - Systemic reviews provide an overview, integration of information, and critical analysis of a particular field of research or theme related to the scope of EAHT. Previous research should be comprehensively reviewed regardless of whether the findings are consistent with expectations or the review authors’ hypotheses. It is appropriate for authors to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of individual studies, focus on high-quality studies that add to the weight of the evidence on the topic under review, identify information gaps, and make recommendations for future research.

    - Meta-analyses present, contrast, or combine data across studies to address a specific study question related to environmental analysis, health and toxicology. Inclusion criteria and strategies used to search the literature should be explicitly described, along with analytic methods used to evaluate or combine data. The potential for publication bias and heterogeneity among studies should be investigated, and graphical displays of data contributed by individual studies are encouraged. The strengths and weaknesses of individual studies and potential causes of discordant findings among studies also should be discussed. Authors should integrate and critically analyze information from previous research, identify information gaps, and make recommendations for future research.

    - Meeting or Conference reports are intended to provide an overview of outcomes of conferences, symposia, or workshops. Authors should submit reports that review the state of the science for a particular area, identify research gaps and needs, and explain how the outcome of the conference addresses those gaps and needs. De novo data, participant lists, dialogue of workgroups or committees, and discussion of the internal organization of the meeting are not allowed. Meeting reports must be submitted to EAHT no later than 1 year after the events they describe. Prospective authors should consult with the editor-in-chief before submitting a Meeting report. The word limit of text is 5,000, with up to 50 references.

    - Brief reports are short reports of original studies or evaluations.

    - Case reports present case presentations of patients with a direct or indirect link of relevance to environmental exposures and environmental health. Visual images or other graphics are encouraged.

    - Investigation reports are epidemiological investigation reports on community health effects or outbreak in relation with environmental exposure or event. Brief description of the exposure circumstances, methods and results of the epidemiological investigation should be presented.

    - Special topics can be made by the decision of editorial boards which invite authors to write manuscripts.

    - Perspectives (including commentaries) present a forum for raising awareness to timely environmental analysis, health and toxicological issues. It provides an opportunity for authors to offer their critical evaluation of recent trends and advances within the scope of EAHT.

    - Editorials are short presentation on any issue related to environmental analysis, health and toxicology and EAHT by the editorial boards or authors requested by the editorial boards. Editorials do not undergo peer review.

    - Letters to the editor and Responses should address specific scientific issues or questions raised by the article published. Authors cited in the Letters may be given the opportunity to respond. It may include a brief table or small figure if it is critical to the discussion.

    - Debates will serve as a forum for discussing controversy and critical issues in environmental analysis, health and toxicology. Typically, two articles address a controversial topic presenting different or opposing viewpoints. The editorial member will commission the articles for debate, but authors are welcome to suggest potential topics of interest and to inquire about possible submission.
