LOW RADIATION
Scope of the Journal
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 Journal 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.
