Three Mile Island in 1979, Chernobyl in 1986 and Fukushima in 2011: for the third time, a nuclear power plant has suffered a serious accident, thus imposing a global review of the way to govern nuclear safety and security. For these accidents, the international community must learn in order to improve international co-operation, both in terms of crisis management and the prevention of risks. In this context, in order to progress collectively on sharing means and knowledge, on safety audits, on transparency as well as on the mechanisms for technical and human co-operation in crisis situations, it is essential to improve co-operation on nuclear safety and security in the civil sector, on the international level.
The International Journal of Nuclear Safety and Security – IJN2S will provide an invaluable early opportunity for the exchange of information on the implications to safe operation of nuclear power plants and the approaches taken by countries around the world. . IJN2S will allow experts, academics, researchers, decision makers, nuclear operators, to provide their vision of the path forward with respect to policy and other challenges which need to be addressed in order to assure continued safe operation of nuclear power plants.
Considered to be a reference work for both professionals and academics in the field of nuclear safety and security, International Journal of Nuclear Safety and Security is a unique international publication providing its subscribers with up-to-date information on all major developments falling within these domains of nuclear energy.
The objectives of the journal are to establish an effective channel of communication between policy makers, government agencies, public authorities, academic and research institutions, citizens, consumer bodies, professionals industry, concerned with the safety and security of nuclear energy units.
