Radiological Physics and Technology covers multiple disciplines involved in basic research and clinical applications in radiological sciences. The multidisciplinary research in medical physics and radiological technology as well as the promotion of research efforts in new scientific fields will be facilitated by the journal's editorial policy, which will also aim to promote translational research in this field. Manuscripts submitted to Radiological Physics and Technology will be reviewed by editors and reviewers not only with an emphasis on scientific quality but also with an educational policy to encourage and nurture new investigators. Reviewers follow guidelines prepared by the Editor-in-Chief to provide comments that will assist authors who are nonnative English speakers, especially young researchers with little experience in publishing in English, to develop the competence in writing good scientific papers.
