More on this journal...

IJNKM is an interdisciplinary forum which aims to establish channels of communication between nuclear and non-nuclear experts and managers who act in the same fields of expertise in social sciences (finance, accounting, law, communication, human resource management, quality management, standardisation, strategy, geopolitics, etc.), sciences and technologies. It also addresses social questions involving issues such as nuclear waste management, nuclear transportation, proliferation, risk management, social acceptability, regulatory and policy aspects, risk estimation, public perception, sustainable development, etc.


Intending to be a focal point for managers, policy makers, and workers in government agencies, academia, research institutions, industry who are concerned with nuclear energy policy, the scope of IJNKM is broad, ranging from theorists through to experimentalists.


A fair balance will be sought between special issues addressing specific topics - developed from a review package and in-depth and supplementary articles - and issues of a more conventional structure blending articles addressing several different topics In addition to the publication of scientific articles, a review of publications (books and theses) and the announcement of relevant international conferences will also be included.
