Journal Ethics

Wolters Kluwer and Journal/Association are committed to meeting and upholding standards of ethical behavior at all stages of the publication process. We follow closely the industry associations, such as the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) and World Association of Medical Editors (WAME), that set standards and provide guidelines for best practices in order to meet these requirements. For a summary of our specific policies regarding duplicate publication, conflicts of interest, patient consent, etc., please visit www.Medknow.com/EthicalGuidelines.asp

Open Access Publication and Creative Commons Licensing

  • "Pop-up" and "banner" ads appear on a random, rotating basis. The advertiser has no control or input over the pages where their ads appear.
  • The Editorial Board has full and final approval over the content of all advertisements.
  • Advertisers will never be shown any manuscripts or other content prior to publication.

  Scope of journal

The scope of this journal covers all aspects of the application of radiation physics to biological sciences, radiotherapy, radiodiagnosis, nuclear medicine, dosimetry, radiation standards and radiation protection. Papers / manuscripts on radiobiology, pertaining to cancer therapy also fall within the scope of the journal. Apart from the original research work, papers which are of practical importance to medical physicists e.g., those dealing with novelty in practices (performance and quality assurance tests, clinical investigations and follow-ups), radiation accidents and emergencies are also published in the journal. Reviews of other publications (e.g., ICRP / ICRU reports) also find place in the journal. Manuscripts with no or oblique relevance to the scope may not find a place.
