9780123735935: Information Resources in Toxicology

This latest version of "Information Resources in Toxicology" ("IRT") continues a tradition established in 1982 with the publication of the first edition in presenting an extensive itemization, review, and commentary on the information infrastructure of the field. This book is a unique wide-ranging, international, annotated bibliography and compendium of major resources in toxicology and allied fields such as environmental and occupational health, chemical safety, and risk assessment. Thoroughly updated, the current edition analyzes technological changes and is rife with online tools and links to Web sites. "IRT-IV" is highly structured, providing easy access to its information. Among the 'hot topics' covered are Disaster Preparedness and Management, Nanotechnology, Omics, the Precautionary Principle, Risk Assessment, and Biological, Chemical and Radioactive Terrorism and Warfare are among the designated. It is international in scope, with contributions from over 30 countries. It includes numerous key references and relevant Web links and concise narratives about toxicologic sub-disciplines. It contains valuable appendices such as the IUPAC Glossary of Terms in Toxicology. It is authored by experts in their respective sub-disciplines within toxicology.

Review:

"Every library (personal, institutional, or public) should have this volume available." -TOXICOLOGY LETTERS (September 2000) "The editors have taken on the herculean task of concisely describing essential worldwide toxicological information resources. The book really has no peers in toxicological publishing and should find a useful place on the reference shelf of toxicologists, allied professions, and information professionals. A particular feature of this third edition is coverage of digital and electronic information resources. Increased interest in environmental and risk assessment issues are also evident and new to this edition. With more public and government awareness of toxicology in general and the attendant growth of digital and electronic resources, a fourth edition probably looms on the horizon." -DOODY'S PUBLISHING REVIEWS
