Spotlight January 2022: Methods, models, mechanisms and metadata

Home > Spotlight January 2022: Methods, models, mechanisms and metadata

For the new year, we are presenting no “classic” paper here, but would like to point out an editorial: Methods, Models, Mechanisms and Metadata: Introduction to the Nanotoxicology Collection at F1000 Research.

This editorial introduces the F1000Research Nanotoxicology Collection, where best practices can be collected in the form of original research reports, including no-effect studies, protocols and methods papers, software reports and systematic reviews. The aim of the collection is to provide an open access platform for nanotoxicology researchers to support an improved culture of data sharing and documentation of evolving protocols, biological and computational models, software tools and datasets that can be used and built upon to develop predictive models and in-silico nanotoxicology and nanoinformatics.

F1000Research (https://f1000research.com/) is an open-research publishing platform for scientists, academics and clinicians, enabling rapid publication of articles and other research outputs without editorial interference. All articles benefit from transparent peer review and editorial guidance to make all source data openly available.

Spotlight October 2022: The titanium dioxide debate – why the current ECHA and EFSA hazard classification should be questioned

Due to various reports and scientific studies, titanium dioxide (TiO2)was also banned in Europe this year (2022) for use as a food additive with the indication that it could possibly be carcinogenic to humans. Although no case of tumour induction in humans has been reported since the use of this material in micro but also […]

Spotlight September 2023: Fishing for raw materials with proteins

The so-called rare earth elements such as neodymium, dysprosium or cerium are elements that are of great importance for the energy transition; among others they serve as components of magnets in generators for electric power generation, act as luminescent materials in energy-saving lamps or as part of the car exhaust catalytic converter. The global production […]

Spotlight October 2021: Nanopesticides – a proposal for a risk assessment framework

The application of so-called “nanopesticides” (see also cross-sectional text Nanomaterials in plant protection products) is said to have two basic advantages: a smaller amount of pesticide is needed for the same agricultural area and the efficacy is improved. This is necessary to grow enough food for a still growing world population. However, this could also […]

Spotlight June 2022: From small to clever – What does the future hold for the safety and sustainability of advanced materials?

The smallest particles in materials research, nanoparticles, have occupied us intensively for more than 20 years to elucidate and further investigate their safety for humans and the environment. Now, however, the development is going from “small = nano” to “clever = advanced”, as discussed in a contribution by international scientists. Thereby, it is a great […]
