Aims and Scope

Radiochimica Acta publishes Original Papers, Review Articles, and Rapid Communications (short communications of more timely interest) encompassing chemical aspects of nuclear science and technology. The journal is meant for scientists who are actively engaged in research work.

  • chemistry of nuclear reactions including heavy ion reactions
  • radiochemically determined nuclear data for applications
  • chemical effects of nuclear transformations
  • radiation chemistry
  • chemistry of the actinides, transactinides and other radioelements
  • radioanalytical chemistry
  • radiopharmaceutical chemistry
  • scientific and technological applications of radionuclides, stable isotopes and nuclear methods in all fields
  • environmental and ecological studies using radiochemical techniques
  • chemistry of the nuclear fuel cycle (especially partitioning)
  • chemistry of radionuclides in geomedia (especially speciation, migration, etc.).

Instructions for Authors

Instructions to Contributors

It is understood that manuscripts submitted to Radiochimica Acta have not been and will not simultaneously be submitted or published elsewhere, unless otherwise agreed. With the acceptance of a manuscript for publication, the publishers acquire full and exclusive copyright for all languages and for all countries. In addition to regular articles, important new discoveries in any branch of radiochemistry may be reported in the form of a Rapid Communication which will be published within two or three months after acceptance. Its length should not exceed four printed pages. Manuscripts must be typewritten, double-spaced and should be submitted in duplicate.

The e-mail address of the corresponding author should be given on the manuscript. Papers should be written in English.

Correct language is the responsibility of the authors, and authors whose native tongue is not English are requested to have their manuscript checked by a colleague who is thoroughly familiar with the English language. Only one set of proofs will be sent to the authors to minimize the publication time and to save costs. It is therefore essential that manuscripts are submitted in final form.
