Today, nuclear reactors generate nearly one quarter of the electricity in nations representing two thirds of humanity, and other nuclear applications are integral to many aspects of the world economy. Nuclear fission remains an important option for meeting energy requirements and maintaining a balanced worldwide energy policy; With major countries expanding nuclear energy's role and new countries poised to introduce it, the key issue is not whether the use of nuclear technology will grow worldwide, even if public opinion concerning safety, the economics of nuclear power, and waste disposal issues adversely affect the general acceptance of nuclear power, but whether it will grow fast enough to make a decisive contribution to the global imperative of sustainable development. A corollary question is whether the world's institutional support for nuclear power and other nuclear applications will be configured to realise the full environmental and developmental value of this technology, while managing all associated risks. To answer these questions, the IJNEST provides an international medium for the communication of original research, ideas and developments in all areas of the field of nuclear energy science and technology. Its scope embraces nuclear fuel reserves, fuel cycles and cost, materials, processing, system and component technology (both fission and fusion), design and optimisation, direct conversion of nuclear energy sources, environmental control, reactor physics, heat transfer and fluid dynamics, structural analysis, fuel management, future developments, nuclear fuel and safety, nuclear aerosol, neutron physics, computer technology (both software and hardware), risk assessment, radioactive waste disposal and reactor thermal hydraulics, international safeguards, materials control and accounting, packaging and transportation.
