Nuclear Science and Engineering

Summary:
Nuclear Science and Engineering is a publication of the American Nuclear Society (ANS), whose "...main objective is to promote the advancement of engineering and science relating to the atomic nucleus, and of allied sciences and arts." The journal is devoted to technical reports, technical notes, and computer code abstracts. It is the research journal of the ANS and "...has been published since 1956....[It] is widely recognized as an outstanding source of information on research in all scientific areas related to the peaceful use of nuclear energy and radiation."
The site's main screen is divided into two frames. On the left, the user will find ANS publication links, as well as general ANS information links. Users can view the current issue of the journal, as well as move forward or back one issue. Likewise, users can view all back issues and access subscription information through site links. Other ANS journals are accessible here; a new additions area is also found. Subtopics are provided for each of the following areas: (1) ANS Constituency (5 options); (2) ANS Resources (4 options); (3) ANS Contacts (3 options); and (4) Go To (5 options).
The site's right frame displays the current issue of the journal. Users will find the issue's table of contents at the top; selecting a title displays its contents within the issue. Scrolling also allows for viewing of publication texts.
The site is sponsored by the American Nuclear Society (ANS); LaGrange Park, Illinois.
