Novel approach for the study of reactive dissolution (April 2018)

Evolution of the projected area and associated perimeter of a uniformly dissolving particle

With the goal of understanding and modelling the reactive dissolution of solids, new microscopic methods have been developed for the investigations of the phenomena and kinetics of these reactions, and applied to the dissolution of uranium dioxide in nitric acid media.

EPJ-N accepted for Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) (November 2016)

EDP Sciences are pleased to announce that EPJ Nuclear Sciences and Technologies (EPJ-N) has been accepted for indexing in the Thomson Reuters Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI). This means that articles published in the journal will be searchable, discoverable and citable via Web of Science.

ESCI expands the depth of indexed publications in Web of Science by providing earlier visibility for sources under evaluation as part of the Science Citation Index Expanded™ (SCIE) rigorous journal selection process. ESCI includes high-quality, peer-reviewed publications of regional importance and in emerging scientific fields and therefore makes additional content of importance to funders, opinion leaders, and evaluators visible in Web of Science.

EPJ-N is a fully open access journal 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.
