Taylor & Francis is delighted to announce a new publishing partnership with the Atomic Energy Society of Japan (AESJ) Ippan Shadan Hojin from 2012, for the Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology.

First published in 1964 and currently in Volume 49 (2012), the formerly self-published Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology provides a channel of communication between industry professionals and academic communities concerned with the study of resources on nuclear energy (fission and fusion processes), nuclear energy and fuel, nuclear power, nuclear electric power generation and nuclear engineering. Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology is published monthly online and bimonthly in print, and has an impact factor of 0.400 in Thomson Reuters’ Journal Citation Report (2010 edition).

Taylor & Francis’ Singapore office will provide local liaison and support, while the company’s international Marketing networks will ensure that the journal’s content is seen, read and cited by active researchers around the world.

Through the publishing partnership, the journal will benefit from the Taylor & Francis Online platform, with functionality such as forward citation linking and advanced online publication of articles in both PDF and HTML formats through iFirst. Prof. Toyohiko Yano, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology, said: “It is a great pleasure to work with Taylor & Francis on this international journal, and we hope to have a long and close partnership in our efforts to contribute to the peaceful and sustainable global development of nuclear science and technology.”

Richard Steele, Editorial Director for Physical Science Journals at Taylor & Francis, added, “We are honoured to have established the partnership with the Atomic Energy Society of Japan, and believe our collaboration will ensure the Journal of Nuclear Science and Technology achieves future success by disseminating high quality peer reviewed research in digital and print media, globally.”
