NTP.J.0.3 Radiation Protection Dosimetry
INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS
SCOPE: The scope of this journal covers all aspects of personnel and environmental dosimetry and monitoring for ionising and non-ionising
radiations, including biological aspects, physical concepts, external personnel dosimetry and monitoring, internal dosimetry and monitoring,
environment and work place monitoring and dosimetry related to protection of patients. Animal experiments and ecological sample measurements
are not included.
Scientific papers should be of a theoretical or discursive nature as opposed to covering practical matters.
Technical papers should be of a practical nature relating to dosimetry or monitoring i.e. experimental or measurement techniques, instruments, etc.
Scientific or technical notes should be of six pages or less including figures or tables. ( 1 page contains about 900 words).
Review articles may be proposed by authors or commissioned by the Editor-in-Chief. A fee may be payable for their preparation.
Letters to the Editor should be written as letters with the authors' names and addresses at the end and should be marked 'For publication1.
LANGUAGE: All contributions should be in English. Spelling should be in accordance with the Concise Oxford Dictionary. However please use
dosemeter and not dosimeter. 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 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 150 words should be provided. The abstract should appear 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. 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 (3 W or 5 W - 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. indian ink or good quality black and white prints of line drawings and graphs, should be
provided with the original typed manuscript. These should be approximately twice the final printed size (full page printed area = 19 cm x 15 cm). 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
using carbon ribbon. 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. 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. wSr. Equations should be fully typed or lettered carefully in indian ink in the proper size.
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 (sec 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 the text.
REFERENCES should be indicated in the text by superior numbers in parenthesis and the full 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, 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.
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. Corrections to proofs should be restricted to typographical or printer's errors etc. Any other changes may be charged to the authors.
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, Nuclear Technology
Publishing, PO Box No. 7, Ashford, Kent TN23 IYW England. It isme/ir/a/that they are accompanied by .vã 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 arc not currently being
submitted to other journals. The Publishers, the Editor and the Editorial Board do not accept responsibility for the technical content or the views
expressed by authors.
CORRESPONDENCE: Please ensure that you provide telephone, fax and telex 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 wordprocessor, publication may be quicker if you submit a copy of
the disc with the manuscript copies. The following programmes can be readily accommodated: 5]A" disc (double density). - Multimate, Wordstar, MS
Word, Word Perfect. Displaywrite and ASCII files. V/i" - Wordstar. Multimate, MS Word. ASCII and IBM MS DOS Pro Dos files.
COPYRIGHT: Authors submitting manuscripts do so on the understanding that if it is accepted for publication, copyright of the article shall be
assigned to Nuclear Technology Publishing.
In order to ensure rapid publication it is most important that all of the above instructions arc complied with in full. Failure to comply may result in
considerable delay in publication 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.
