About the Journal

The Journal of Radiation Research (JRR) is an official journal of The Japan Radiation Research Society (JRRS), and the Japanese Society for Radiation Oncology (JASTRO).

Since its launch in 1960 as the official journal of the JRRS, the journal has published scientific articles in radiation science in biology, chemistry, physics, epidemiology, and environmental sciences. JRR broadened its scope to include oncology in 2009, when JASTRO partnered with the JRRS to publish the journal.

Articles considered fall into two broad categories:

Oncology & Medicine - including all aspects of research with patients that impacts on the treatment of cancer using radiation. Clinical case reports are not acceptable.

Radiation Research - basic science studies of radiation effects on livings in the area of physics, chemistry, biology, epidemiology and environmental sciences.

Please be advised that JRR does not accept any papers of pure physics or chemistry.

The journal is bimonthly, and is edited and published by the JRR Editorial Committee.
