Radiation Physics and Chemistry is a multidisciplinary journal that provides a medium for publication of substantial and original papers, reviews, and technical notes which focus on research and developments in radiation physics, radiation chemistry and radiation processing. A fuller though not exhaustive list of topics would include:

Radiation Physics
Fundamental processes in radiation physics
Interaction mechanisms for example scattering and absorption of photon and particle radiations, attenuation coefficients, x-ray fluorescence, Cherenkov effect, polarization, effects of periodic structures (Bragg diffraction, channelling, parametric x-radiation, etc), mathematical methods in radiation physics, reference data.
Radiation sources and detectors
For example accelerator and radionuclide spectra and other properties, radiation fields from point and extended sources, detector response functions, basic physics of dosimetry, radiation transport, buildup factors.
Applications of radiation physics in fundamental research
For example, x-ray, γ-ray and neutrino astronomy and astrophysics, fusion plasma diagnostics, polycapillary x-ray and neutron optics.

Radiation Chemistry
Ionic and radical species and their measurement
Resultant chemical reactions
Kinetics and reaction constants
Reactivity transfer
Effect of state and dose rate
