International Journal of Low Radiation (IJLR)

The IJLR is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the publication of research articles, review papers and technical notes in all domains related to low-dose radiation, among which are the biological and health effects in humans and the biota, in vitro and in vivo research on low radiation effects, regulatory and policy aspects, risk estimation and public perception.

The main focus of the IJLR is on health and biological effects that occur at radiation levels comparable to those encountered in the natural environment, at the workplace or in the environment under normal or accidental situations when the doses incurred are low enough not to result in deterministic effects. In this context, it must be remembered that low radiation also means exposure to natural elevated radiation levels (doses and dose rates) in excess of current internationally recommended values and national regulatory dose and dose rate limits.


The IJLR is intended to be a focal point and a forum for researchers, engineers, environmental specialists, managers and policy makers for whom an in-depth knowledge of real, as opposed to assumed, low radiation effects and risks is necessary.


In addition to manuscripts dealing strictly with the effects of ionising radiation, research papers on synergism between low radiation exposures and other environmental agents are invited. The IJLR also welcomes manuscripts on uncertainty analyses of low radiation effects and on methods for reducing these uncertainties. A fair balance will be sought between: special issues addressing specific topics, developing from a review package and in-depth and supplementary articles; and issues of a more conventional structure blending articles addressing several topics.
