These articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication in IJNEx, but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

  • The Methodology of Calculating the Concentration of Elements in a Sample using the Neutron Activation Analysis Method
    by Abdessamad Didi, Ahmed Dadouch, Jaouad Tajmouati, Hassan bekkouri 
    Abstract: The determination and the identification of the concentrations of the elements in a material or in a sample know a great variety either concerning the type of the method or the instruments used. The main methods is the neutron activation analysis which emerged since 1936, usually after two years of the discovery of artificial radioactivity and four years of the discovery of neutron by James Chadwick. This method has become the favoured method. The purpose behind the construction of nuclear research reactor is to give this method a wide use all over the world. That is, The main objective of this study is to present the methodology followed in the analysis of the spectra produced by the detection instruments (detector and calculating machines) and to the comparison of the results found with results certified by the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
