First paragraph (this article has no abstract)

The Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins[1], ISSN 0104–7930, was established in 1995 as the first electronic Brazilian scientific journal, maintained and edited by the Center for the Study of Venoms and Venomous Animals [2] of UNESP. It has always been written in English and published twice a year, at first distributed on 3.5” diskettes. As the journal took to CD-Rom format in 1998, it was selected to participate in the SciELO Project [3]. In 2003, tropical diseases were included within its scope in order to provide more comprehensive content. It was thereafter entitled Journal of Venomous Animals and Toxins including Tropical Diseases (JVATiTD) with ISSN 1678–9199. The journal finally became online-only [4] and was published every four months in 2004. From 2005, JVATiTD began publishing on a quarterly basis and was selected in 2006 to take part in the Science Citation Index Expanded[5] and Scopus® [6], with inclusion in the EBSCO database [7] in 2010.
