About the Journal


Impact factor of the RSCI system: 0,685
The journal is issued 6 times a year.

The journal publishes the results of studies of changes caused by the action of ionizing and non-ionizing radiation in biomatter at all levels of its organization, from the molecular to the ecosystem level: radiation chemistry of biomolecules and biophysics of radiobiological processes; molecular and cellular radiobiology; radiation genetics and cytogenetics; radiation biochemistry, pathophysiology, hematology and pathomorphology of exposed animals and humans; clinical radiobiology; radioprotectors and other anti-radiation agents; radionuclide toxicology, radiation epidemiology. The journal also publishes research materials on the migration of radionuclides in the biosphere and its components: terrestrial ecosystems, soil, vegetation and animals, hydrosphere and hydrobionts

We publish reviews on current problems of radiobiology, radioecology, and related disciplines, reviews of new books, and a scientific chronicle.

The Journal has been established in 1961.

Attention to the authors:

The journal is peer-reviewed and is included in the list of the Russian Higher Attestation Commission for publication of papers of candidates for academic degrees. Articles published in the journal are cited in the RSCI system, an application for citing articles in the Scopus system has been submitted
