ANS is committed to advancing, fostering, and promoting the development and application of nuclear sciences and technologies to benefit society.
Explore the many uses for nuclear science and its impact on energy, the environment, healthcare, food, and more.
Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy
The mission of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Policy Division (NNPD) is to promote the peaceful use of nuclear technology while simultaneously preventing the diversion and misuse of nuclear material and technology through appropriate safeguards and security, and promotion of nuclear nonproliferation policies. To achieve this mission, the objectives of the NNPD are to: Promote policy that discourages the proliferation of nuclear technology and material to inappropriate entities. Provide information to ANS members, the technical community at large, opinion leaders, and decision makers to improve their understanding of nuclear nonproliferation issues. Become a recognized technical resource on nuclear nonproliferation, safeguards, and security issues. Serve as the integration and coordination body for nuclear nonproliferation activities for the ANS. Work cooperatively with other ANS divisions to achieve these objective nonproliferation policies.

Former NRC chairs issue vaccine timeline recommendation to CDC
Five former chairmen of the U.S. Nuclear Regulatory Commission—Stephen Burns, Allison Macfarlane, Nils Diaz, Richard Meserve, and Dale Klein—signed a letter to José Romero, Arkansas health secretary and chair of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) immunization advisory committee, requesting that the advisory committee update its recommendation for COVID-19 vaccine allocation guidance for the energy workforce (including nuclear energy workers).
Currently, the CDC has four phases for the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. Those phases are numbered:

General Peer Review Information
Generally, manuscripts are sent to two or three referees. The identity of referees is strictly confidential, and you are requested to not communicate directly with the authors. You are also asked to not disclose your identity to the authors or discuss the papers you have reviewed with colleagues until the reviewed paper has been published.
The editor of the journal invites people to serve as the reviewers of a manuscript. If invited, you will receive an e-mail invitation. Log in to the Editorial Manager site at nse.edmgr.com using your username and password or the deep link provided in the e-mail. You will have a chance to review the manuscript's abstract before agreeing or declining to review the manuscript. If you agree, you are requested to read the manuscript and submit a review through Editorial Manager. Common reasons to decline to review a manuscript include if you have a conflict of interest, if it is outside your scope of expertise, or if you are unable to complete the review within the time requested.
Performing the Manuscript Review
When reviewing the submitted contribution, please consider the following list of questions, at least partially, in your review.**
If revision or rejection is indicated, please give detailed, specific, and substantive comments.
*For detailed instructions for reviewing papers in Editorial Manager, please download the Tutorial for Reviewers.
**A referee is not expected to edit a manuscript. However, in addition to your review, we would appreciate information on any editorial/language errors that you may note, or minor changes in wording you may wish to suggest. Please indicate such errors or suggested changes on the manuscript file and upload it along with your review.
***Technical papers present archival, original contributions to the field of knowledge. Technical notes describe preliminary results or limited extensions of previously reported work. Critical reviews combine a focused topical overview with an extensive literature review to critically evaluate the state-of-the-art, but do not necessarily add new knowledge to the field.
Thank you for acting as a referee for our journal and the communities that Nuclear Science and Engineering serves. We rely on the expertise of our reviewers and their reports to maintain the quality of the journal.
