An International Journal devoted to all aspects of Nuclear Fission Energy

Nuclear Engineering and Design - ISSN 0029-5493
Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP): 1.473 Source Normalized Impact per Paper (SNIP):
SNIP measures contextual citation impact by weighting citations based on the total number of citations in a subject field.
SCImago Journal Rank (SJR): 1.073 SCImago Journal Rank (SJR):
SJR is a prestige metric based on the idea that not all citations are the same. SJR uses a similar algorithm as the Google page rank; it provides a quantitative and a qualitative measure of the journal’s impact.
Impact Factor: 0.967 (2015) Impact Factor:
The Impact Factor measures the average number of citations received in a particular year by papers published in the journal during the two preceding years.

Nuclear Engineering and Design covers the wide range of disciplines involved in the engineering, design, safety and construction of nuclear fission reactors. The Editors welcome papers both on applied and innovative aspects and developments in nuclear science and technology.

Fundamentals of Reactor Design include:

• Thermal-Hydraulics and Core Physics

• Safety Analysis, Risk Assessment (PSA)

• Structural and Mechanical Engineering

• Materials Science

• Fuel Behavior and Design

• Structural Plant Design

• Engineering of Reactor Components

• Experiments

Aspects beyond fundamentals of Reactor Design covered:

• Accident Mitigation Measures

• Reactor Control Systems

• Licensing Issues

• Safeguard Engineering

• Economy of Plants

• Reprocessing / Waste Disposal

• Applications of Nuclear Energy

• Maintenance

• Decommissioning

Papers on new reactor ideas and developments (Generation IV reactors) such as inherently safe modular HTRs, High Performance LWRs/HWRs and LMFBs/GFR will be considered; Actinide Burners, Accelerator Driven Systems, Energy Amplifiers and other special designs of power and research reactors and their applications are also encouraged.
