60 Year Anniversary of Applied Radiation and Isotopes



Bert M. Coursey


Those readers who have a library with the first bound copies of ARI may find it enjoyable to compare Volume 1, No.1 from 1956 with an issue from Volume 118 in 2016. The range of applications has shifted away from agricultural and industrial uses of radiation and isotopes to current topics such as PET, Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT), and Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT). But, one is immediately struck by the high quality of the science and technology, and the rigor in the presentation of results, which have been hallmarks of the journal for 60 years. With continued efforts from our authors and the Editorial Board, we can anticipate several more decades of excellence for ARI.
