Aims and scope

The European Journal of Physics N (EPJ-N) is an open access medium for the communication of original research, ideas and developments in all areas of the peaceful use of nuclear energy, as well as on applications of nuclear particles and radiation.

EPJ N publishes technical papers, technical notes, critical reviews, workshop and congress proceedings, book reviews, computer code abstracts, and letters to the editor.

EPJ N aims to serve its academic community, industry professionals, research institutions, government agencies and policy-makers concerned with the research, technological development and application of nuclear science and technology by:

  • Providing authoritative and up-to-date information on the field of nuclear science and technology ;
  • Promoting the exchange of ideas and research within the nuclear/atomic science community
  • Identifying areas of growth by assessing the conditions and constraints affecting the peaceful use of nuclear energy ;
  • Supporting the development of nuclear technology and applications in various markets for peaceful purposes ;
  • Responding to global energy and environmental needs and objectives through the study of nuclear science, technology and resources.
