Instructions to Authors

 

Medical Physics publishes articles broadly concerned with the relationship of physics to medicine and biology. The articles may be experimental or theoretical.

 

Article Types and Page Limits

Submissions may be in the form of a (1) Research Article, (2) Technical Note, (3) Medical Physics Letter, (4) Review Article or Future of Medical Physics (formerly Vision 20/20) Article, (5) Task Group Report, (6) Special Report, (7) Point/Counterpoint “Debate,” (8) Correspondence, (9) Controversial Topic Article, (10) Editorial, (11) Ph.D. Thesis Abstract, (12) Erratum, (13) Medical Physics Dataset Article, or (14) Book Reviews. All submissions (except Ph.D. Thesis Abstracts) will undergo full peer review.

 

Page limits of individual articles are noted below. Page lengths beyond this limit will be charged to the author at $200 per additional page. An agreement to pay will be made available to authors with page proofs and can be used for calculating any excess page charges. The Editors strongly encourage authors to to estimate potential manuscript length using the formula below prior to submission. Authors will be asked to enter this estimate at submission.

 

Published pages = (average words per full-text Ms. page) * no. pages (including title, abstract, references, embedded figures)/900.

You can estimate words/Ms. page by using Microsoft Word to count the all of the words selected in a typical full, text-only page. Please Note: This estimate will not guarantee a final journal article page count or prevent charges levied for articles exceeding the allotted number of journal pages for your article type. Generally, the above formula is accurate within 1 printed page 70% of the time.

 

(1) A Research Article is a report of original experimental or theoretical research. Authors should keep in mind that attention to clarity and conciseness facilitates the review process and also the impact of the published article. Research articles must include novel medical physics scientific or technical content or broadly applicable clinical physics innovations (generally, most articles with a purely applied/clinical focus should be submitted to our sister journal, the Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics). The page limit for research articles is 10 printed pages.

 

(2) A Technical Note is a concise description of a specific development, procedure or device which should be a solution to a specific problem and have sufficient relevance to be useful to many readers of Medical Physics. Authors must insert the words “Technical Note:…” at the beginning of their title. Technical Notes should be concise and occupy no more than 5 printed pages in Medical Physics.

 

(3) A Medical Physics Letter (MPL) is a short article on a scientific or clinical topic of overriding importance to medical physicists. MPLs are subjected to an expedited review process. The initial review cycle decisions are limited to: “accept with no revisions,” “conditionally accept with minor or major revisions”, or “reject”. A final decision must be made by the end of the second review cycle. A MPL does not preclude publication of a regular research article at a later time, provided the latter is substantial expansion of the former. Because of the timeliness of a Medical Physics Letter, any revision must be submitted within 4 weeks of receiving the Editor's decision email. The page limit for Medical Physics Letters is 5 printed pages.

 

(4) A Review Article is an authoritative review of a subject important to the field of Medical Physics. A Future of Medical Physics Article is an authoritative forward-looking projection of a subject important to the field of Medical Physics. These articles may be either invited or proffered. Authors should submit a detailed proposal consisting of a title page, rationale, and an outline, which should be submitted online as a new manuscript. The proposal will be assigned to a review article co-editor, who will negotiate the content with the authors. If the proposal is approved, the authors will be invited to submit a full manuscript. The review article co-editor will manage the peer-review process of the manuscript. The rationale should explain the need for the Review/Future article at this time, and put the proposed article into context of the existing literature. The outline should be detailed enough to allow the review article co-editor to assess the topics and level of detail covered. Review and Future of Medical Physics Articles are published online only. A page limit of 18 printed pages or less is recommended for Review Articles, and 14 printed pages or less for Future of Medical Physics Articles.

 

(5) A Task Group Report is a technical report prepared by an official task group of the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM). Task Group Reports are published online only. Task Group reports may not be submitted Medical Physics until they have gained full approval from the internal AAPM review process (the cover letter should explicitly state that approval has been granted). A Task Group Report is peer-reviewed in the usual manner, except that the associate editor is appointed by the journal editor from a short list of potential associate editors proposed by the parent committee. The proposed associate editors shall not have been involved in the writing of the Task Group Report. The appointed associate editor shall select four referees: two referees from the parent committee of the Task Group who may have reviewed the report, but are not report coauthors; and two referees external to the Task Group or parent committee, who have not been involved as a reviewer or in any other manner in the preparation of the Task Group Report. Task Group Reports should have a standardized title, such as “Monitor unit calculations for external photon and electron beams: Report of the AAPM Therapy Physics Committee Task Group 71.” Task Group Reports should not exceed 30 printed pages except in special cases and excess page fees will be charged. For Task Group Reports that exceed 30 printed journal pages, an Executive Summary, rather than the full Task Group Report, is reviewed and, if acceptable, published online, with a link to the full Task Group Report available on the AAPM web page

 

(6) A Special Report is a report of general interest to medical physicists that falls outside the categories described above.

 

(7) A Point/Counterpoint “Debate” is a concise article consisting of pro and con positions on a controversial issue in the discipline. These are typically invited rather than proffered. The Editor invites authors to submit articles addressing a specific topic, one for each side of the argument. Each side of the debate should be prepared by a single author unless coauthorship by both sides has been arranged prior to the start of the debate. Readers who wish to volunteer to debate a controversial issue should contact the Point/Counterpoint Moderator for instructions (Dr. Colin Orton: ortonc@comcast.net

 

(8) A Correspondence normally addresses a scientific point in connection with a previous publication in Medical Physics.

 

(9) A Controversial Topic Article is a full length paper on a medical physics topic that is controversial, highly relevant, and of wide interest to the Medical Physics community In contrast to the debate format of Point/Counterpoint articles, these papers are more in-depth and generally argue for only one point of view. It is desired that the manuscript include results of the authors’ and/or others’ experimental and/or simulation studies to defend the authors’ position on the issue, but depending on the topic, this is not absolutely necessary. Manuscripts in this category can be both proffered and invited. Authors intending to submit a proffered Controversial Topic article should discuss the subject of the article with the Editor-in-Chief before beginning development of the article. While these articles should focus on scientific controversies, occasional offerings on broader issues as they relate to medical physics research, e.g., sociology, funding, research training, etc., may be considered at the Editors’ discretion. The abstract for a Controversial Topics article should be a brief (300 words or less) synopsis of the paper rather than the 4 part structured abstract for other types of articles. The page limit for Controversial Topic articles is 10 printed pages.

 

(10) An Editorial is a brief (usually 2 pages or less) article of general interest to readers. Generally, Editorials are authored by one or more of the Editors or invited by the Editors. Editorials usually address issues associated with Medical Physics operations or editorial policies. Occasionally, Editorials on issues of general concern to scientific publishing or peer-reviewed science are published.

 

(11) A Ph.D. Thesis Abstract is a short description of a Ph.D. research project of a recent graduate. They are published online only. Ph.D. abstracts should be submitted via e-mail to the editorial office: MedPhys@wiley.com

 

(12) An Erratum is a statement by the authors of the original paper that briefly describes any correction(s) resulting from errors or omissions. Any effects on the conclusions of the paper should be noted. The corrected article is not removed from the online journal, but notice of erratum is given. The Erratum is made freely available to all readers and is linked to the corrected article. There is no page limit for an Erratum.

 

(13) Medical Physics Dataset Articles (MPDAs) describe scientifically or clinically valuable open-access datasets with high potential for contributing to the research of medical physicists working on related problems. In contrast to Research Articles, MPDAs should not include hypothesis testing, or data analyses supporting generalizable conclusions. The publically accessible dataset must be permanently archived before the MPDA can be published. At the current time, submissions of this new article type will be considered only by prior arrangement with the Editor-in-Chief. The page limit for a Medical Physics Dataset Articles is 10 printed pages. Full Author and Reviewer Instructions are available here.

 

(14) A Book Review is a 1 to 3 page critical review of a published book or anthology that has been commissioned by the Book Review Editor. Authors who are interested in having their publications reviewed in Medical Physics should contact the Journal Manager at MedPhys@wiley.com
