Founded in 1912 and published monthly, Strahlentherapie und Onkologie is a scientific journal that covers all aspects of oncology with focus on radiooncology, radiation biology and radiation physics. The articles are of interest not only to radiooncologists but to all physicians interested in oncology, as well as to radiation biologists and radiation physicists. The peer-reviewed journal publishes original articles, review articles and case studies, scientific short communications and a literature review with annotated articles that inform the reader of new developments in the disciplines concerned. This allows for a sound overview of the latest results in radiooncology research.

Contributions are published in English and German, with all articles having English summaries and legends. The journal is the official publication of several scientific radiooncological societies and publishes the relevant communications of these societies.

  • COVID-19 and 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.
