Radiochemistry is a journal that covers the theoretical and applied aspects of radiochemistry, including basic nuclear physical properties of radionuclides; chemistry of radioactive elements and their compounds; the occurrence and behavior of natural and artificial radionuclides in the environment; nuclear fuel cycle; radiochemical analysis methods and devices; production and isolation of radionuclides, synthesis of labeled compounds, new applications of radioactive tracers; radiochemical aspects of nuclear medicine; radiation chemistry and after-effects of nuclear transformations.

PEER REVIEW

Radiochemistry is a peer reviewed journal. We use a single blind peer review format. Our team of reviewers includes over 50 experts. The average period from submission to first decision in 2018 was 45 days, and that from first decision to acceptance was 60 days. The rejection rate for submitted manuscripts in 2018 was 10%. The final decision on the acceptance of an article for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
