Aim and scope: The purpose of the Journal of Radiation Protection and Research (hereafter referred to as ‘the Journal’) is to disseminate scientific and technical information on radiation protection and related issues covering both ionizing and non-ionizing radiation. These include not only man-made radiation and radionuclides but also cosmic radiation and naturally occurring radioactive material (NORM). Specific expertise covers radiation physics and detection, radiation dosimetry, dose monitoring and evaluation, radiation biology and epidemiology, radiation risk assessment, radiation public health and environmental impact, radiation safety and regulations, training and education, and social science and participation including social communication and risk communication. The fields of radiological protection include uses of radiation/radioisotopes, nuclear industry and research, NORM industry and research, radiation diagnosis and therapy, accelerator research, and radioactive waste.

The ISO abbreviation of the journal title: The official title of the journal is "Journal of Radiation Protection and Research" and the abbreviation is "J. Radiat. Prot. Res."
Year of launching: The Journal of Radiation Protection and Research (JRPR) have been published by the Korean Association for Radiation Protection (KARP) since 1976. JRPR was originally titled with Journal of Radiation Protection (JRP) up to 2015. The pISSN of JRPR was issued in May 2016 and eISSN was issued in March 2016. JRPR became the official co-publishing journal of the Korean Association for Radiation Protection (KARP), the Japan Health Physics Society (JHPS), and the Australasian Radiation Protection Society (ARPS) in September 2019.
