Towards the 1-loop effective action of type IIB orientifolds

I will review the status of 1-loop corrections to the effective action of certain string orientifolds. Concretely, I will mainly focus on the moduli sector of 4-dimensional toroidal type IIB orientifolds with N=1 supersymmetry. Emphasis will be put on recent results concerning field redefinitions of the moduli fields which are enforced at string 1-loop level in order to comply with supersymmetry.
