Nuclear Technology (NT), an international research journal of the American Nuclear Society (ANS), publishes review papers and unreported work on all phases of applications of fundamental research to nuclear technology. Authors are encouraged to submit complete papers derived from work summarized in the Transactions of the American Nuclear Society and other proceedings. Concise versions of detailed reports of limited distribution will also be considered.
Nuclear Technology publishes technical papers, technical notes, critical reviews, book reviews, rapid communications, and letters to the editor. Technical notes report preliminary results, extensions of previously reported work, or complete results of limited archival value. 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 NT readership. Letters to the editor provide an expeditious medium for comments on editorial policies and for discussions on the content of other contributions.
Author rights under copyright law are transferable to ANS. 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 ANS'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 $60 per published page. Authors will submit their final files through NT's Editorial Manager page at http://www.editorialmanager.com/ntech/.
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.
