GAINESVILLE, FL – The Particle Therapy Cooperative Group (PTCOG) is pleased to announce the inaugural issue of its open-access journal, the International Journal of Particle Therapy (IJPT). The IJPT will be released quarterly and provide a venue for discussion of all issues related to particle therapy, including physics, biology, treatment planning, technology development, socioeconomic, and ethical concerns in proton therapy, carbon ion therapy, and their impact on cancer. The inaugural summer issue of IJPT includes original articles and expert reviews as well as proceedings from PTCOG’s 52nd annual meeting. The fall issue of IJPT will focus on particle therapy for pediatric malignancies.
Dr. Nancy P. Mendenhall, Medical Director of the University of Florida Proton Therapy Institute, is the journal’s Editor-in-Chief and Dr. William M. Mendenhall, also of the University of Florida, is its Operating Editor.
