New Publisher for Annals of the ICRP


From 1928 to 1959 the reports of ICRP, including those under ICRP’s former name International X-ray and Radium Protection Commission, were published as articles or on behalf of ICRP by other organisations. What later became known as ICRP Publication 1 (ICRP, 1959) was the first volume issued directly by ICRP, published as a book by Pergamon Press. Eventually ICRP moved to a journal format, producing Publication 24 as Volume 1, Issue 1 of the Annals of the ICRP in 1977 (ICRP, 1977). In 2004 Pergamon Press was acquired by Elsevier, who continued to publish the Annals of the ICRP for many years, up to and including Publication 123 (ICRP, 2013), Volume 42, Issue 4.

Following a long and carefully considered competitive process, ICRP decided to continue publication of the Annals of the ICRP with Sage Publications. Sage will be responsible for production and distribution beginning with Publication 124, and is already handling requests for new subscriptions and orders of back catalogue titles.

The ICRP website has a listing of all ICRP publications, and these publications are available through SAGE at
