AAPM supports its mission by disseminating scientific and technical information in the discipline of medical physics.


Medical Physics

Medical Physics Journal Medical Physics (‘The International Journal of Medical Physics Research and Practice’) is our flagship publication with authors and subscribers throughout the world. It is available in print and online through individual and library subscriptions. Subscription provides online access and sophisticated search capability through the entire journal archive at no additional charge, and a significant number of featured articles are also available without charge. RSS feeds from Medical Physics provide notification of new articles published in selected topical areas regardless of subscription.


Journal of Applied Clinical Medical PhysicsThe Journal of Applied Clinical Medical Physics (JACMP) is an open-access journal, which publishes papers that will help clinical medical physicists perform their responsibilities more effectively and efficiently for the increased benefit of the patient.


AAPM Reports

AAPM ReportsAAPM Reports are technical reports on specific topics that are prepared by experts drawn from the AAPM membership who work together in Task Groups under the guidance of the AAPM Councils and Committees. All AAPM reports are published on-line with open-access without subscription.

AAPM Ad Hoc Reports

AAPM Ad Hoc ReportsAAPM Ad Hoc Reports are reports created by AAPM Ad Hoc Committees that answer their specific charge. This is a members only link.

AAPM Monographs and Proceedings

AAPM Monographs and Proceedings are reviews of medical physics topics and are primarily the output of many of the AAPM Summer Schools. These are available for purchase from the Medical Physics Publishing Corporation.

USB Flash Drives of Selected Presentations from the AAPM Annual Meetings, recent AAPM Summer Schools other meetings are available for purchase.

Medical Physics Practice Guidelines

MPPGs are intended to provide the medical community with a clear description of the minimum level of medical physics support that AAPM would consider to be prudent in all clinical practice settings. Support includes but is not limited to staffing, equipment, machine access, and training.

Radiation and Medical Imaging Communications Guide

AAPM Radiation and Medical Imaging Communication Guide Originally commissioned by the Ad Hoc Committee on External Communications and Social Media, this guide assists health professionals in explaining the benefits and risks of medical imaging to care providers, patients, family members, and the public.

ACR-AAPM Practice Parameters and Technical Standards

ACR-AAPM Practice Parameters and Technical Standards are the result of the collaboration of members of AAPM, ACR, and sometimes other organizations. Each has been reviewed by the membership of the contributing organizations and is subject to regular revisiting and updating as needed.


HyTEC (High Dose per Fraction, Hypofractionated Treatment Effects in the Clinic) is the project of the AAPM Working Group on Biological Effects of Hypofractionated Radiotherapy/SBRT (WGSBRT). The WG includes physicists, radiation oncologists and radiation biologists and is charged with generating reports based on critical review of published data regarding both tumor and normal tissue response to the strongly hypofractionated regimens used in SBRT (SABR) treatments with suggestions for outcomes reporting standards that will facilitate future analyses. The project also includes several more speculative "Vision Papers" on the radiobiology of these treatments. The work is the result of the diligent efforts of numerous investigators, authors, reviewers and support personnel.

Medical Physics Electronic Content (MPEC)

Medical Physics Electronic Content generated by and approved by any AAPM committee with the intent of making such content available via the AAPM website.

ICRP Online PublicationsAAPM has entered into an organizational subscription agreement with the ICRP to provide access to Annals of the ICRP This is a members only link., a periodical that provides recommendations and guidance on protection against the risks associated with ionising radiation, from artificial sources as widely used in medicine, general industry and nuclear enterprises, and from naturally occurring sources. These reports and recommendations are published four times per volume on behalf of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP). Each issue provides in-depth coverage of a specific subject area.
