Publish a Paper in the ESARDA Bulletin

ESARDA is an association of European organisations formed to advance and harmonise research and development in the area of nuclear safeguards. It also provides a forum for the exchange of information and ideas between nuclear facility operators, safeguards authorities and persons engaged in research and development. ESARDA was formed in 1969 with the purpose of facilitating collaboration in R&D in the field of safeguards and in the application of such R&D to the safeguarding of source and special fissile materials.

ESARDA publishes a Bulletin containing scientific and technical articles related to safeguards and verification as well as news related to the ESARDA activities. This publication appears twice a year. In addition, thematic special issues are published as proposed by the ESARDA community.
