Health Physics Society Publications
The Health Physics Society issues several types of official publications: Health Physics News, the Health Physics Journal, Operational Radiation Safety, special publications (proceedings and educational materials), and American National Standards.
Authors submitting articles for both the Health Physics Journal and Operational Radiation Safety may make submissions online at www.editorialmanager.com/hpj.
Health Physics News is issued monthly and contains information on upcoming events, recent news about members and Society activities, discussions of technical issues and controversies, educational opportunities, and other general items of interest to members.

The Health Physics Journal, the official journal of the Society, is issued monthly and contains refereed technical publications in the general field of radiation protection, technical notes and letters, book reviews, and a calendar of future meetings and events related to radiation protection or nuclear science.
Operational Radiation Safety is a Society publication featuring peer-reviewed papers concerned with practical and applied health physics.
HPS Publications iPad® Apps
An iPad® app for the Health Physics Journal and Operational Radiation Safety is available beginning with the November 2012 issue of the Journal.
Web Operations will be presenting a series of special publications on this website in an effort to explain radiation and its effects on man and the environment. The first of this series is Radiation and Risk: Expert Perspectives.
Examples of special publications include Society brochures, midyear symposia and conference proceedings, professional development school texts, position statements, policy papers, discussion papers, and standards of qualification and practice. A number of midyear proceedings and texts from professional development schools (previously know as summer school) are available from the Health Physics Society Secretariat or Medical Physics Publishing. Linnea Wahl is responsible for editing and publishing these materials for the Society and may be contacted at:
The Society also publishes American National Standards related to various aspects of radiation protection and safety. An American National Standard is intended to be a guide to aid manufacturing, consumers, and members of the general public. These standards are prepared in accordance with guidelines established and monitored by the HPS Standards Committee and undergo rigorous reviews before approval and issue. Questions about American National Standards should be referred to the Health Physics Society Standards Committee chair.
The Health Physics Society maintains a list of scientific and technical books pertinent to health physics authored or edited by HPS members. The books are listed alphabetically by the member's name.
