Critical Reviews in Toxicology is a peer-reviewed medical journal that publishes review articles on all aspects of toxicology. It is published by Taylor & Francis and the editor-in-chief is Roger O. McClellan. It was established in 1971 as CRC Critical Reviews in Toxicology, obtaining its current name in 1980.

The journal has been accused of being a "broker of junk science", too cozy with industry, by the Center for Public Integrity.[1] Monsanto was found to have worked with an outside consulting firm to induce the journal to publish a biased review of the health effects of its product "Roundup".[2]
