Nuclear Future needs new reviewers

Nuclear_Institute 150Nuclear Institute magazine Nuclear Future is looking to expand its database of reviewers.

You are no doubt familiar with the Nuclear Institute’s house journal Nuclear Future and appreciative of the high standard of technical knowledge imparted through its contents. This is achieved through a number of technical experts who peer review all technical articles to ensure a high level of verification and validation as well as a degree of innovation and forward development.

However the NI is always keen to expand its database of reviewers particularly in the following general categories:-

  • Nuclear Reactor Technology
  • Nuclear Fuel Cycle Technology
  • Nuclear Fuel Reprocessing
  • Nuclear Safety
  • Nuclear Security
  • Non-proliferation Safeguards
  • Nuclear Construction
  • Nuclear Project Management & Controls
  • Quality Management/Quality Assurance
  • Nuclear Decommissioning Technologies
  • Radioactive Waste Management

And also in the following technical categories:-

  • Reactor Physics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Heat Transfer/Fluid Flow
  • Material Science
  • Nuclear Chemistry

Please note that this invitation is open to all persons with nuclear expertise, whether or not they are members of the Nuclear Institute.

To allay any fear that volunteering will result in an avalanche of papers to review please note that Nuclear Future is a bi-monthly publication and issues are themed.

Forthcoming issues will be themed on the following topics:-
