Aims and Scope
The journal deals with all aspects of non-radioactive isotope application in environmental and health studies, such as

  • investigations using variations in natural isotope abundance (isotope ecology, isotope hydrology, isotope geology, authenticity control);
  • stable isotope tracer techniques to trace the fate of certain substances in soil, water, plants, animals, and in the human body;
  • isotope effects, tracer theory, and mathematical modelling of environmental cycles;
  • isotope measurement methods and equipment with respect to environmental and health research;
  • diagnostic stable isotope application in medicine;
  • ionogenic radiation exposure and its effects on all living matter as well as radiation protection.

The journal publishes original papers, short communications, reviews of important subject areas, book reviews, conference proceedings, conference reports, and news of interest. The language of publication is British English.
