Call for papers - EPJ N Topical Issue on Fuel Cycle Simulation

Fuel cycle simulation codes are developed to enhance the scientific knowledge related to nuclear fuel cycle physics. While those tools help to understand fuel cycle physics and to highlight drivers for nuclear inventories, they are also used as boundary objects for building interdisciplinary research projects in connection with sociology, economics, etc. Many different fuel cycle simulation tools are developed by nuclear engineering and research institutions.

EPJ N Meet the Editors: Introducing Professor Jan-Leen Kloosterman

This year, 2020, saw the appointment of Professor Jan Leen Kloosterman (TU Delft, The Netherlands) as Associate Editor for EPJ N. The journal is seeking to further develop its content on Nuclear Reactor Physics, so Prof. Kloosterman will support this area. Heading a department (Radiation Science and Technology), and boasting an impressive publication record, we were both delighted and honoured to welcome Prof. Kloosterman on the Editorial Board of our journal.

We have asked Prof. Kloosterman a few questions to get to know his research area and his approach to the role a little better…

“INSIDER” – New topical issue published in EPJ Nuclear Sciences & Technologies

EPJ Nuclear Sciences & Technologies (EPJ N) is pleased to present the new topical issue “INSIDER”, guest edited by Laura Aldave De Las Heras, Nuclear Safety & Security Directorate, European Commission, and Danièle Roudil, CEA and University of Montpellier.

The Horizon 2020 Euratom European project 'Improved Nuclear Site characterisation for waste minimisation in Decommissioning and Dismantling operations under constrained Environment' (INSIDER) was launched in June 2017, spanning 4 years. The project aims to improve the management of nuclear waste with medium or high radioactivity levels from nuclear sites under decommissioning and dismantling, or other constrained environments.
