N ational Library of Medicine® TOXLINE users can now link directly to EPA Toxic Substances Control Act (TSCA) Inventory reports via the National Technical Information Service (NTIS). Linking on the ordering information in the TOXLINE record will take users to the NTIS ordering page for a given report. The Toxic Substance Control Act Test Submission database (TSCATS) was developed by the Syracuse Research Corporation for the EPA. It is a central system for the collection, maintenance, and dissemination of information on unpublished technical reports submitted by industry to EPA under the Toxic Substances Control Act.

To locate all TSCATS records in TOXLINE, enter "TSCATS" into the TOXLINE search box, or select the TSCATS subset from TOXLINE Limits. The NTIS ordering interface link can be found under the "Order Information" field of TOXLINE TSCATS records.

The TOXLINE database is the NLM bibliographic database for toxicology, a varied science encompassing many disciplines. TOXLINE records provide bibliographic information covering the biochemical, pharmacological, physiological, and toxicological effects of drugs and other chemicals. The database contains over three million bibliographic citations, most with abstracts and/or indexing terms and Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) Registry Numbers. TOXLINE references are drawn from various sources and organized into component sub-files which are usually searched together, but which may also be used to limit searches.

TOXLINE covers much of the standard journal literature in toxicology (which it obtains from PubMed®), complemented with references from an assortment of specialized journals and other sources.
