IJNGEE addresses the evolution and governance of safe and secure nuclear resources, with emphasis on the implications that policy choices have on both the welfare of humans and the ecology of the planet. This perspective acknowledges the complexity of the nuclear sector as an interface between ecological and socio-economic processes operating in parallel over different space-time scales, as well as the reflexive characteristic of human systems.


 Topics covered include

  • Economics/management of nuclear energy
  • National energy policies, strategy for policy making
  • Nuclear energy in economic development, environment policies
  • Economic, social, natural resources issues
  • Low level, high-level radioactive waste disposal
  • Nuclear energy/employment
  • Geopolitics of energy resources
  • Thermodynamic concepts in ecological-economics systems analyses
  • Ecological/environmental impacts of nuclear energy
  • Ecological economics applied to nuclear energy
  • Total quality/environmental management
  • Future demand/supply forecasting/planning
  • Globalisation, trade liberalisation, nuclear technology transfer
  • Safety, security
  • Public attitudes

More on this journal...

The objectives of IJNGEE are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, public authorities, academic and research institutions, citizens, consumer bodies and professionals in industry, concerned with the complex role of nuclear energy in society. It also aims to promote and coordinate developments in the field of nuclear resources. The international dimension is emphasised in order to overcome cultural and national barriers and to meet the needs of accelerating technological and ecological change and changes in the global economy.


Policy makers and planners, decision makers, international agencies, university staff, academics, researchers, business leaders, managers, professionals, union leaders, practitioners and consultants. Students taking courses in economics, environmental issues and international development are also among the groups the journal intends to reach.


IJNGEE publishes original works, review papers, technical reports, state-of-the-art reviews advancing theoretical constructs (including concepts, models, algorithms, methods, etc.), commentaries on policies, meeting and conference reports, book reviews and notes, and other significant news relevant to the discipline. Contribution may be by submission or invitation.
