Editorial - The New Radiation Science

Prompted by our Founding Editor, Kai Siegbahn, we featured in the 500th volume of Nuclear Instruments and Methods A — a special section that recounted a vision for the development of instrumentation for synchrotron radiation science. In recognition of Kai’s keen interest in this field Elsevier awarded in 2009 the Kai Siegbahn Prize for achievement insynchrotron radiation instrumentation and science. While each of the types of synchrotron facilities described in that issue promise significant improvement to their users, one approach – the free electron laser – offers the possibility to investigate the phenomena that are not open to scrutiny in any other way. This frontier of research into ultra-fast phenomena or requiring ultra-fast probes can rightly be called the New Radiation Science.

Physics of Life Reviews - Format Change

In this 7th volume we change the journal format to Open Peer Commentary. Most reviews will be follwed by 1-page comments discussing the review. Comments will be followed by a 2–3-page Author rebuttal. Comments will be invited by the Editor handling the review; we aim at 5 comments per review. Physics of Life Reviews has also been selected to be indexed and included in the National Library of Medicine's MEDLINE database..
