Journal of Radiotherapy in Practice (JRP) uses Editorial Manager for online submission and peer review. Editorial Manager is the “leading, cloud-based manuscript submission and peer-review tracking system for scholarly journals, reference works, books and other publications”. Further information on Editorial Manager can be found here.
Please follow instructions at Editorial Manager submission site. Please submit your manuscript in Microsoft Word format. Please add line numbering to your manuscript. All papers should use the third person and past tense. Further information on preparing your manuscript for submission can be found on the Preparing your materials page. All submissions require the following files:
1. Title page
- Title of the article
- Surname and initial of each author
- Name and address of the department or institution to which the work should be attributed
- Name and email address of the author responsible for correspondence
- Sources of financial support
- Conflicts of Interest statements
- Structured abstract (maximum of 200 words): Introduction, Methods, Results and Conclusions
- Main article with images and tables embedded where appropriate
- Headings should be used as per the abstract; subheadings are recommended to enhance readability
- References using AMA referencing style
3. Supplementary Material
- We encourage submission of research data to support ongoing research.
We require all corresponding authors to identify themselves using ORCID when submitting a manuscript to this journal. ORCID provides a unique identifier for researchers and, through integration with key research workflows such as manuscript submission and grant applications, provides the following benefits:
- Discoverability: ORCID increases the discoverability of your publications, by enabling smarter publisher systems and by helping readers to reliably find work that you have authored.
- Convenience: As more organisations use ORCID, providing your iD or using it to register for services will automatically link activities to your ORCID record, and will enable you to share this information with other systems and platforms you use, saving you re-keying information multiple times.
- Keeping track: Your ORCID record is a neat place to store and (if you choose) share validated information about your research activities and affiliations.
See our ORCID FAQs for more information.
If you don’t already have an iD, you will need to create one if you decide to submit a manuscript to this journal. You can register for one directly from your user account on Editorial Manager, or alternatively via https://ORCID.org/register.
If you already have an iD, please use this when submitting your manuscript, either by linking it to your Editorial Manager account, or by supplying it during submission.
ORCIDs can also be used if authors wish to communicate to readers up-to-date information about how they wish to be addressed or referred to (for example, they wish to include pronouns, additional titles, honorifics, name variations, etc.) alongside their published articles. We encourage authors to make use of the ORCID profile’s “Published Name” field for this purpose. This is entirely optional for authors who wish to communicate such information in connection with their article. Please note that this method is not currently recommended for author name changes: see Cambridge’s author name change policy if you want to change your name on an already published article. See our ORCID FAQs for more information.

Before Cambridge can publish your manuscript, we need a signed licence to publish agreement. Under the agreement, certain rights are granted to the journal owner which allow publication of the article. The original ownership of the copyright in the article remains unchanged.
