    The journal Radiochimica Acta was founded in 1962, under the patronage of the Nobel Laureate Otto Hahn, to cater for the publishing needs of the then fast expanding field of radiochemistry. In those days the radiochemists published their work in several different journals of chemistry and physics and had thus no platform of their own for technical communications. With the introduction of Radiochimica Acta a new era dawned for radiochemistry. Although published in Germany, right from its inception the journal aimed at inculating an international character and flavor. The international character has been maintained, continuously nurtured and further developed over its liefe of 50 years. Today all the articles are published in English language.
