Author’s Guide
1. General Information
Nuclear Engineering and Technology (NET), an international journal of the Korean Nuclear Society (KNS), bimonthly publishes articles related to the theory and application of nuclear science and technology. NET publishes research papers and technical notes. All papers and technical notes will be reviewed for technical content. It is understood that the paper has been neither published nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere. The copyright of all published papers and notes will be vested in KNS. No article can be published unless accompanied by a signed publication agreement which specifies a transfer of copyright from authors to KNS and author responsibility for protecting proprietary and third-party rights.
2. Detailed Fields
NET covers all fields of nuclear engineering for peaceful utilization of nuclear energy and radiation. Authors should choose one of the following review fields at the time they submit their manuscript: 1) Reactor Physics, 2) Thermal Hydraulics, 3) Nuclear Safety, 4) Nuclear I&C, 5) Nuclear Physics, Fusion, and Laser Technology, 6) Nuclear Fuel Cycle and Radioactive Waste Management, 7) Nuclear Fuel and Reactor Materials, 8) Radiation Applications and Shielding, 9) Nuclear Structural Analysis and Plant Management & Maintenance, 10) Human Resource Development and Energy Economics & Policy.
3. Manuscript Preparation
Manuscripts must be written in English and should be typed on one side of the page with adequate margins and indented paragraphs. Generally, the length of the manuscript should be within 15 printed pages. All manuscript must use SI (metric) units in text, figures, and tables. The first page should contain only the title, the name and complete affiliation of each author, a review field and, at the bottom, the number of pages, tables and figures included. New or present addresses of authors should be reported in the footnotes. Manuscripts should in general be organized in the
following order: title, names of authors and their complete affiliations including zip code, abstract (not exceeding 200 words), keywords (up to 7), introduction, main body of a paper, acknowledgments, references, appendices, table & figure captions, tables and figures. Unnecessary sections may be omitted.
Headings: Use 1, 2, ... for major headings and 1.1, 1.2, ... for secondary headings. Mathematical Formulas: All mathematical formulas should be clearly written, with special consideration to distinctive legibility of sub- and superscripts. Equations (at least the principal ones) should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals in parentheses in the right hand margin.
Tables and Figures: Tables and Figures should be numbered consecutively with Arabic numerals in order of their first appearance and have a complete descriptive title. They should be typed on separate sheets. Tables should not repeat data which are available elsewhere in the paper. Figures should be original ink drawings or computer drawn figures in the original and of high quality, ready for direct reproduction. Figures should be referred to in the text as, for example, Fig. 1, or Figs. 1-3.
References: References should be consecutively numbered in order of their first appearance, cited in the text by numeric and listed in numerical sequence. Journal article references should be written in order of authors, paper title, journal title, volume, page number, and year. Book references should be written in order of authors (or editors), book title, edition or volume number if any, page, publisher, and the town and year of publication. Report references should be written in order of authors (or editors), report title, report number, the full name of organization where the report was prepared, and year of publication. Proceeding references should be written in order of authors, paper title, proceedings title, and the location and date of the conference. The names of all authors must be included. The title of the journal, book, and proceedings should be Italics and the volume should be in bold. Also, the authors are strongly encouraged to supply the full titles of the respective references.

4. Proofs and Reprints
Galley proofs will be sent to the authors. Proofs are to be read carefully and all printing errors corrected. Once accepted by the Editorial Board, alteration from the original manuscript shall not be permitted. In case of alteration, further review by the Editorial Board will be required. The author will receive 20 reprints gratis. The author can order additional reprints at his/her own expense at the time he/she approves the proofs.
6. Color Illustrations
All papers are printed in black and white and reproduced in color on the web with no charge to the author. However, an author can request color printing of figures at his/her own expense. Interested author should contact the NET office at the submission address.
7. Page Charge
There is no page charge for papers published in NET that are submitted after September 1, 2008
