Special issues 2021

This year different special issues were devoted to BNCT. Here you can find useful information. More details of the published papers available on our repository.

Biology Special Issue “Boron Neutron Capture Therapy: From Nuclear Physics to Biomedicine”

ISSN 2079-7737, Impact Factor 3.796.

The aim of this Special Issue is to illustrate the interdisciplinary research of which BNCT is a paradigm, with a focus on the transition from nuclear physics to biomedicine. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the production of neutron beams for BNCT, experimental dosimetry—including real-time dosimetry—computational dosimetry, radiobiological models and treatment planning, boron quantification and imaging, new BNCT applications, and radiation protection issues. This Special Issue and welcomes the submission of original research and review manuscripts focusing on any of these topics, including papers on methods that have made contributions to the development of this field. Both basic and clinical research papers are welcome and are expected to contribute to a global interdisciplinary vision of BNCT.
Scope
The journal covers all topics related to Biology, at any scale from the global to the sub-atomic. Biologists study complex systems using an incredibly wide repertoire of approaches, and Biology aims to capture this diversity and publish across the spectrum of the field. The special issue belongs to the section Biophysics.

Cells Special Issue “Biology of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT)”

ISSN 2073-4409, Impact Factor 4.366.

This Special Issue of Cells collected contributions, in the form of original research articles, reviews, or shorter perspective articles, on all cellular aspects related to the theme of BNCT. Relevant topics included, but were not limited to, the following: Radiation biology for BNCT; Cell-based studies; Preclinical animal studies; Drug development for BNCT; Impact of BNCT on the proteomic profile and omics approaches; Boron imaging; Mechanisms of action of BNCT; Abscopal effect of BNCT; Early clinical trials; Biomarkers for therapeutic optimization.
Scope
Cells covers every topic related to cell biology and physiology, molecular biology, and biophysics, with major focus on experimental cytology rather than on clinical and epidemiological studies.

Applied Radiation and Isotopes Special Issue “The 18th International Congress on Neutron Capture Therapy (ICNCT-18)”

ISSN 0969-8043, Impact Factor 1.270.

This Special Issue aims to spotlight the contributions of the 18th International Congress on Neutron Capture Therapy (ICNCT-18) in promoting neutron capture therapy. ICNCT-18, held in Taiwan in 2018, has gathered physicians, scientists and industry to present great ideas of research and development of neutron capture therapy and discuss clinical achievements of BNCT against different cancers. The number of participants in the 18th ICNCT exceeded those of previous ICNCTs, with 368 registered participants from 26 countries, showing vigorous growth of research and development on neutron capture therapy.
Scope
Applied Radiation and Isotopes addresses the development and peaceful application of nuclear, radiation and radionuclide techniques in chemistry, physics, biochemistry, biology, medicine, security, engineering and in the earth, planetary and environmental sciences, all including dosimetry. Nuclear techniques are defined in the broadest sense and both experimental and theoretical papers are welcome.
