Open Access


Radiation and Applications is an Open Access Journal, which means that all content is freely available online, immediately upon publication, without charge to the user or his/her institution. Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles, or use them for any other lawful purpose, without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author, under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

Radiation and Applications has no Article Submission Charge (ASC).

Prior to publication, the authors are required to pay an Article Processing Charge (APC) in the amount of 100 EUR. The APC is a fee charged to authors to cover the article processing expenses and to allow unrestricted access to the full version of the article, immediately upon publication. Please note that the payment of this charge does not guarantee the acceptance of the manuscript for publication and does not influence the outcome of the review procedure.

APC has to be paid by bank transfer based on the proforma invoice provided by the Publisher. All bank charges for the money transfer services must be paid by the authors. There is no possibility to wave the APC or decrease its amount.
