Oxford University Press to publish open access title Journal of Radiation Research
Date:2/1/2012

Oxford University Press (OUP) is pleased to announce that it will be publishing Japan's pre-eminent title in radiation science from next year.

The Journal of Radiation Research (JRR) is the official journal of The Japan Radiation Research Society (JRRS) and the Japanese Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (JASTRO). Since its launch in 1960 as the official journal of the JRRS, the journal has published scientific articles on radiation science in biology, chemistry, physics, epidemiology, and environmental sciences. JRR broadened its scope to include oncology in 2009, when JASTRO partnered with the JRRS to publish the journal.

JRR has been self-published as a free-access journal since its inception. The title's move to Oxford University Press will see it adopt OUP's fully open access publishing model, with discounted author charges sponsored by JRRS and JASTRO. There will also be an option for subscribers to purchase print copies.

Editor-In-Chief Dr Yoshiya Furusawa commented: "We believe this new partnership with Oxford University Press, with its full open access initiative, will significantly enhance the journal's global reach. We look forward to providing a multidisciplinary international forum where all researchers in the field of radiation science can work together toward the advancement of this subject."

Miki Matoba, Journals Director for Oxford University Press in Japan, said: "OUP is thrilled to be partnering with these renowned organizations to publish JRR, and to be strengthening our Japanese journal list with this outstanding publication. The area of radiation science is one of the most important in medical research, especially after the Tohoku earthquake and subsequent radiation leak, and we feel that the Journal of Radiation Research will be essential to the progress of the subject in the twenty-first century."

The first issue of the Journal of Radiation Research will be published by OUP in July 2012.
