EB­RPDJ N12 Radiation Protection dosimetry
INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
SCOPE: The scope of this journal covers all aspects of personal and environmentaly and monitoring for ionising and non-ionising
radiations, including biological aspects, physical concepts, external personal dosimetry and monitoring, environmental and workplace monitoring
and dosimetry related to protection of patients. Animal experiments and ecological sample measurements are not included.
Scientific or Technical Papers should be full papers of a theoretical or practical nature with comprehensive descriptions of the work covered. c orl Notesd be brief, covering not more than 4 printed pages (one page contains about 800 words or equivalent in
figures) and are likely to cover work in development or topics of lesser significance than filli papers.
Letters to the Editor should be written as letters with the authors' names and addresses at the end and should be marked 'For Publication'.
LANGUAGE: All contributors should be in English. Spelling should be in accordance with the Concise Oxford Dictionary. However please use
dosemeter rather than dosimeter, for consistency within the journal. Authors whose mother tongue is not English are requested to ask someone
with a good command of English to review their contribution before submission
TITLES should be brief and as informative as possible. A short title of not more than 50 characters for a running head should be supplied.
AUTHORS' names and addresses (with full postal address) should appear immediately below the title
ABSTRACTS containing up to ISO words should be provided on a separate page, headed by the title and authors' names.
SCRIPTS must be typewritten and double spaced. One copy must be directly typed and three additional (photocopies) should be provided for
refereeing purposes to minimise the time required for refereeing. Headings should be given to main sections and sub-sections which should not be
numbered. The title page should contain just the title, authors' names and addresses and a short running title. Manuscripts should be written in the
third person and not the first. If your manuscript is prepared using a computer or word processor it would be helpful if you could also send a copy
of the computer disc (please specify software).
FIGURES AND TABLES should not be inserted in the pages of manuscript but should be supplied on separate sheets. One high quality set of
illustrations and figures, suitable for direct reproduction, e.g. black ink or good quality black and white prints of line drawings and graphs, should
be provided with original typed manuscript. These should be approximately twice the final printed size (full page printed area = 19cm χ 15cm).
The lettering should be of such a size that the letters and symbols will remain legible after reduction to fit the printed area available. Tables should
be typed. Tables should be lightly lined in pencil. All figures and tables should be numbered, using Arabic numerals, on the reverse side of each
copy. Numbered captions or titles should be typed on a separate sheet. Figures and tables should be kept to the minimum consistent with clear
presentation of the work reported. Half-tone photographs should only be included if absolutely necessary. Figures generated by computer
graphics are generally NOT suitable for direct reproduction. Photocopies of all figures and tables should accompany each copy of the manuscript
for refereeing purposes. Colour figures can be reproduced at cost.
UNITS, SYMBOLS AND EQUATIONS: SI units should be used throughout but other established units may be included in brackets (Note that
cGy is not acceptable). Any Greek letters or special symbols used in the text should be identified in the margin on each occasion they are used.
Isotope mass numbers should appear at the upper left of the element symbol e.g. "°Sr. Equations should be fully typed. FOOTNOTES should only
be included if absolutely necessary. They should be typed on a separate sheet and the author should give a clear indication in the text by inserting
(see footnote) so that they may appear on the correct page.
ABBREVIATIONS which are not in common usage should be defined when they first appear in die text.
REFERENCES should be indicated in the text by superior numbers in parenthesis and the filli reference should be given in a list at the end of the
paper in the following form, in the order in which they appear in the text:-

All the authors' names and initials (unless there are more than 10 authors), the title of the paper, the abbreviated title of the journal, volume
number, page numbers and year should be given. Abbreviated journal titles should be in accordance with the current World List of Scientific
Periodicals. If all of this information is not available the reference should not be cited.
PROOFS will be sent to any nominated author for final proof reading and must be returned within 3 days of receipt using the addressed label
which will be provided. Type-setting or printer's errors should be marked in red. Any other changes should be marked in green but if they are
significant they may be charged to the authors. Authors' changesd in red may not be accepted. The Editor reserves the right to make
editorial corrections to manuscripts. An order form for additional reprints will accompany proofs.
SUBMISSION: All manuscripts (original and three copies) and correspondence should be addressed to Mr E.P. Goldfinch, Executive Editor,
Nuclear Technology Publishing, P.O. Box No 7, Ashford, Kent TN23 1YW, England. It is essential that they are accompanied by six fully
addressed adhesive labels addressed to the author nominated to receive proofs and correspondence. These will be used for acknowledgement of
receipt of the manuscript, notification of acceptance, return of proofs to authors and supply of reprints. Papers will be considered only on the
understanding that they are not currently being submitted to other journals. The Publishers, The Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board do not
accept responsibility for the technical content, the use of that content or the views expressed by authors.
CORRESPONDENCE: Please ensure that you provide telephone, FAX and E-mail numbers if available. Please quote the manuscript number in
any correspondence once receipt of your manuscript has been acknowledged.
COMPUTER MANUSCRIPTS: If yourt is prepared using a computer or word processor, publication may be quicker if you submit a
copy of the disc with the manuscript copies. The following programmes can be readily accommodated: - Multimate, Wordstar, MS Word, Word
Perfect, Displaywrite, ASCII files and IBM MS DOS Pro Dos Files.
COPYRIGHT: Authors submitting manuscripts do so on the understanding that if accepted for publication, copyright of the article shall be
assigned to Nuclear Technology Publishing unless other specific arrangements are made.
GENERAL: In order to ensure rapid publication it is most important that all of the above instructions are complied with in full. Failure to comply
may result in considerable delay inn or the return of manuscripts to the author. In case of difficulty with illustrations and figures please
consult the photo-reprographic section of your establishment. If illustrations of a quality high enough for direct off-set photographic reproduction
cannot be supplied they may be redrawn by the publishers at the request of authors if all relevant details are provided. A charge will be made if
requirements are extensive.
