Fusion Science and Technology, a research journal of the American Nuclear Society, publishes original research and review papers on fusion plasma physics and plasma engineering, fusion nuclear technology and materials science, fusion plasma enabling science technology, fusion applications, and fusion design and systems studies. Authors are encouraged to submit complete papers or work summarized in the Transactions of the American Nuclear Society and in other proceedings. Concise versions of detailed reports of limited distribution will also be considered.
Fusion Science and Technology publishes technical papers, technical notes, critical reviews, book reviews, meeting reports, rapid communications, and letters to the editor. Technical notes report preliminary results and extensions of previously reported work. Technical papers and notes, critical reviews, and rapid communications are reviewed for technical content. Rapid communications provide speedy publication, after accelerated review and processing at the discretion of the Editor, of innovative work of high quality and immediate interest to the FST readership. Letters to the editor provide an expeditious medium for comments for editorial policies and for discussions on the content of other contributions.
Author rights under Copyright Law are transferable to the American Nuclear Society. These rights, as well as author responsibility for protecting proprietary and third-party rights, are specified in the author-ANS agreement to be made before publication. All materials accepted for publication are protected by copyright obtained by ANS.
Authors are informed of the partial cost of publication - reflected in a page charge based on manuscript length. Manuscripts accepted by the Editor are published without regard to page charge payment; however, this source of revenue is essential in maintaining the Society's journal publishing services. Publication of manuscripts unsupported by page charge payment is necessarily limited, and some delay in presentation may occur. The currently estimated compensation rate for the author-related costs of publishing is $165 per published page; however, authors who send in electronic versions of final accepted papers will be billed at $60 per published page. Please note that authors will be required to send these final files to email@example.com or upload them to the ANS/FS&T upload page.
ANS technical journals cannot accept papers from countries that are on the list of Sanctioned Countries and Programs, issued by the Office of Foreign Assets Control of the U.S. Department of Treasury, as follows: https://www.treasury.gov/resource-center/sanctions/Programs/Pages/Programs.aspx.
