About the JRR Award at ICRR2015

Ten prizes will be awarded to outstanding oral presentations given at ICRR 2015, which cover topics that are relevant to JRR1). All presenters in Oral Sessions shall be considered. The winners will be announced in JRR, and will each receive a certificate and a small souvenir, as well as waived publication charges to submit their research to JRR2).

1) Papers considered fall into two broad categories:
Radiation Research - basic science studies of radiation effects on livings in the area of biology, physics, chemistry, epidemiology and environmental sciences.
Oncology & Medicine - including all aspects of research with patients that impacts on the treatment of cancer using radiation. Clinical case reports are not acceptable.

2) Articles eligible for waived publication fees should be related to the original prize-winning presentation, and must submitted to the journal by the end of May 2016. All articles shall be subject to standard peer-review procedures.
