  • Announcement: COVID-19 impact on peer review

    As a result of the significant disruption that is being caused by the COVID-19 pandemic we are very aware that many researchers will have difficulty in meeting the timelines associated with our peer review process during normal times. Please do let us know if you need additional time. Our systems will continue to remind you of the original timelines but we intend to be highly flexible at this time.

  • Theme Issue

    Radiation and Environmental Biophysics is organizing a theme issue "Factors influencing individual response to ionising radiation."

    Deadline: October 2020
