Many factors were considered in the decision to publish a third edition of the Dictionary of Toxicology. It is a fact that many sources of information, usually web-based, are available and that experts in any narrowly focused aspect of toxicology are not likely to need to look up the meaning of terms in their area of expertise. However, toxicology includes not only fundamental studies in molecular, biochemical, and cellular science but applied fields such as risk analysis, risk communication, and legal and regulatory aspects of risk management among many others.

Thus a real need exists to provide meaning for those in fundamental toxicology wishing to extend the scope of their activities and also those in all the areas that toxicology impacts to understand the terms they need to carry out their tasks. Finally, it must always be remembered that many, if not most, web-based sources contain material that is not peer reviewed.

To bring out a print version of a dictionary, monograph, or journal at a time of transition to electronic versions of all of these is, perhaps, foolhardy but to anticipate the inevitable the publisher will have a dedicated Dictionary of Toxicology web site for additions, revisions, and corrections.
