Free the Annals

As part of our 90th Anniversary year in 2018, the many organisations and individuals from around the world recognised below generously supported the Free the Annals initiative. The goal is to make Annals of the ICRP free to access with a 2-year delay. The fundraising target to realise this goal is €500,000.

Entering 2019, approximately €430,000 has been pledged. With just a bit more support, you too can be part of achieving the goal for the benefit of professionals and the interested public world-wide. Everyone, everywhere, will have free access to all but the most recent two years of Annals of the ICRP indefinitely. What does this mean? Approximately two years after each issue is released it will be downloadable for free. Those who need access to the very latest can maintain a subscription or buy individual issues.

Pledge your support before the end of April to ensure we can make all issues up to 2017 free to download by the end of this year!

ICRP is an international, independent registered charity, relying on voluntary contributions to support our work. Our ~250 expert members from more than 30 countries and all disciplines relevant to radiological protection volunteer their time to ICRP. Together we develop the System of Radiological Protection, which forms the basis of standards, legislation, guidance, programmes, and practice worldwide. This helps ensure that patients, workers, the public, and the environment are protected against detrimental effects of radiation exposure.

Our sincerest thanks to all contributors who have pledged their support to this monumental initiative!

We are delighted to lead the way with a meaningful contribution towards making the Annals of the ICRP available for free, and in particular we are proud that Publication 103 is now available to everybody thanks to our contribution. Easy access will be a boon to governments, scientists, professionals, and interested citizens world-wide. Let’s take on this important initiative together.

- Christer Viktorsson, Director General, The UAE’s Federal Authority for Nuclear Regulation (FANR)

We are pleased to join other agencies and countries in ICRP’s efforts with our contribution towards making the Annals of the ICRP available for free; and, in particular, we are thrilled that Publication 103 will be available to everyone. Access will be a benefit to radiation protection professionals, scientists, and interested countries worldwide. Let us undertake this critical initiative together.

- Dr. Patricia R. Worthington, Director, Office of Health and Safety, United States Department of Energy

I see the Free the Annals initiative as transformational for our profession. Not only will we have easier access to the ICRP recommendations that are the foundation of our work, but other interested professionals, policy makers, and members of the public will also have free access. The IRPA Executive Council has already contributed to this cause, knowing that this change will have a very positive global impact on our profession, in perpetuity. I also strongly urge each IRPA Associate Society to seriously consider supporting this initiative. Contributions from many Associate Societies, large or small, will send a strong message that this is worth supporting.

- Roger Coates, President, International Radiation Protection Association
