Nuclear & Plasma Sciences Society


A number of researchers may not have easy access to the high-quality papers published in the NPSS journals the Transactions on Nuclear Science, the Transactions on Plasma Science, and the Transactions on Radiation and Plasma Medical Sciences.  To enhance the visibility of NPSS content to readers who do not enjoy a straightforward way to peruse these journals’ articles, NPSS is beginning a trial period where selected papers are made Open Access, allowing anyone to read them regardless of the type of subscription they or their institution have.  The Editor-in-Chief of each journal selects papers which are believed to be of outstanding quality, of high interest, potentially of high impact, or which otherwise represent material deemed to be of particular value to the research community.  The papers selected to date are noted on and linked from each journal’s page under the Publications tab on this website.
