Student Section

JRB Student Section

JRB Student Section is on articles that have been specially commissioned with students in mind. It has pursued this aim through publishing Education, Life, Career, Photoclinic and Artworks Articles. This section publishes up to 2 papers in each issue and will be a good place for students to have their knowledge and experience in Radiobiology to be shared with all colleagues easily. 


Main considerations

All university students can send manuscript to JRB Student Section, however, all Education articles need at least one expert coauthor. Similar to other manuscripts submitted to JRB, the coauthor must fulfill certain criteria for authorship thinking through and discussing with students the ideas in the article, writing or rewriting it, and approving the final version. Simply adding the expert's name is not enough and neither is mere acknowledgement of their contribution.

Manuscripts should be electronically submitted through Online Submission System.

Please make sure your submission is appropriate to a student and/or junior researcher audience. Every manuscript submitted to the JRB Student Section will undergo a peer-review process by JRB journal experts. The peer-review process is single blinded, i.e., the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information of who the peer-reviewers are. A covering letter must be included when submitting a manuscript and must state the novelty of the manuscript.

JRB makes every effort to ensure the accuracy of all the information (the “Content”) contained in its publications. However, JRB makes no representations or warranties whatsoever as to the accuracy, completeness or suitability for any purpose of the content and disclaim all such representations and warranties whether express or implied to the maximum extent permitted by law. Any views expressed in this publication are the views of the authors and are not the JRB views.

  1. All submitted manuscripts to the JRB Student Section are subject to strict peer-review process by at least two reviewers that are experts in the area of radiobiology. 
  2. Similar to other JRB sections, the factors that are taken into account in review the students’ manuscripts are relevance, soundness, significance, originality, readability and language. 
  3. If a student is encouraged to revise and resubmit a submission, there is no guarantee that the revised submission will be accepted.
