Nuclear Energy Science and Technology– IJNEST

49, rue Lauriston, 75116 Paris, France


Today nuclear reactors generate nearly one-fourth of the electricity in nations representing 2/3 of humanity, and other nuclear applications are integral to many aspects of the world economy. Nuclear fission remains an important option for meeting energy requirements and maintaining a balanced world wide energy policy; With major countries expanding nuclear energy’s role and new countries poised to introduce it, the key issue is not whether the use of nuclear technology will grow worldwide, even if public opinion for safety, the economics of nuclear power, and waste disposal issues adversely affect the general acceptance of nuclear power, but whether it will grow fast enough to make a decisive contribution to the global imperative of sustainable development. A corollary question is whether the world’s institutional support for nuclear power and other nuclear applications will be configured to realise the full environmental and developmental value of this technology while managing all associated risks.

To answer these questioning, The International Journal of Nuclear Energy Science and Technology – IJNEST, provides an international medium for the communication of original research, ideas and developments in all areas of the field of nuclear science and technology. Its scope embraces nuclear fuel reserves, fuel cycles and cost, materials, processing, system and component technology (both fission and fusion), design and optimization, direct conversion of nuclear energy sources, environmental control, reactor physics, heat transfer and fluid dynamics, structural analysis, fuel management, future developments, nuclear fuel and safety, nuclear aerosol, neutron physics, computer technology (both software and hardware), risk assessment, radioactive waste disposal and reactor thermal hydraulics, international safeguards, materials control and accounting, packaging and transportation,


The objectives of the journal are to establish an effective channel of communication between professionals, policy makers, government agencies, academic and research institutions concern with nuclear science and technology. It also aims to provide authoritative, reliable information on current nuclear and next generation technologies, economics, strategies and resources to industry and governments for use in policy analyses and decision making, including on the role of nuclear energy within the context of energy policies that contribute to sustainable development.

The international dimension is emphasized in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological change and changes in the global economy]

The International Journal of Nuclear Energy Science and Technology – IJNEST, does:

  • To promote the exchange of information in the nuclear science area;
  • To identify the needs in nuclear science;
  • To promote international co-operation;
  • To support long-term option for nuclear development and use in the context of increased competition in the electricity market;
  • To help in securing the availability of technologies and resources necessary to respond to new requirements;
  • To assess the conditions and constraints affecting the use of nuclear energy to contribute to global energy and environmental objectives;
  • To maintain reasonably up-to-date information on all the economic aspects of use of nuclear energy;


Professionals, academics, researchers and policy makers


The International Journal of Nuclear Energy Science and Technology – IJNEST publishes high quality papers relevant to nuclear fission and fusion reactors and high power accelerator technologies, and in closely related aspects of science, technology and engineering. Both original research and critical review papers covering experimental, theoretical, and computational aspects of either fundamental or applied nature are welcome.
