Individual Dose Response and Radiation Origin of Childhood and Adolescent Thyroid Cancer in Fukushima II: Possibility of High I-131 Exposure as in Chernobyl
Q: Is the topic relevant to the journal's area of interest? Is it contemporary and interesting for
Abstract & Keywords
Q: Are all required components included in the abstract? Are the keywords appropriately chosen?
Q: Is the goal explicitly stated in the Introduction? Is its formulation clear and unambiguous?
Q: Is the paper's structure coherent? Is it in coherence with the goal of the paper?
Tools and Methods
Q: Are the methods the author uses adequate and well used?
Discussion & Conclusion
Q: Is it related to the results presented before? Do you consider them coherent?
Comments: The manuscript thoroughly explained the results of the incidences of thyroid cancer among childhood and adolescent in Fukushima and Chernobyl, providing relevant literature. The Conclusion stated revealed a dozen-fold increase in childhood thyroid cancer cases after the Fukushima nuclear accident and showed a rise when compared to radioactive iodine exposure that occurred in Chernobyl accident.
Q: Does the author utilize relevant literature?
Q: What is the level of the author’s knowledge? Does the author utilize all recent contributions relevant to the topic?
Q: Is the paper's length adequate to the topic's significance? Do you suggest shortening the paper without losing its value?
Figures & Tables
Q: Does the author use them suitably? Are legend and notations clear?
Q: Is it clear and understandable?
Comments: There are few errors found in the manuscript, which are as follows:
· Under heading “Correction of exposure dose by the baseline dose”, 2nd paragraph, 1st sentence, “To see the effect of BLD of Fukushima prefecture” must be rewritten as “To see the effect of BLD in Fukushima prefecture”.
· The word ‘Conversion’ has been misspelled as ‘Convertion’ in heading “Convertion coefficient k from the dose dependence of EAR in Fukushima and Chenobyl”.
Further comments on the paper
Comments: The manuscript illustrated the dose response radiation origin of childhood and adolescent thyroid cancer in Fukushima II. The authors described the methods involved in the study and presented a clear overview of the results. The study highlighted the comparison between the number of childhood thyroid cancer cases after the Fukushima nuclear accident and radioactive iodine exposure in Chernobyl.
Q: Would you recommend this manuscript for further publication?
A: Yes - Suitable to be published
If you have any questions or clarifications you can write to the journal.
