ESARDA Bulletin

The International Journal of Nuclear Safeguards and Non-Proliferation

The ESARDA Bulletin is the academic peer-reviewed journal featuring scientific and technical articles related to safeguards and verification. The Bulletin is published twice a year and is indexed in the Scopus citation database.

The ESARDA Bulletin is the longest standing publication of the Association. First published in 1982, the Bulletin was created to inform the ESARDA community on the latest news and activities of the group. Throughout the decades, the Bulletin gradually evolved to accommodate technical/academic papers, and in the early 2000s started including a peer-reviewed section of academic manuscripts. Since the last ten years, the bulletin has become solely a purely academic publication, shifting its scope to a purely academic journal. In 2020, the ESARDA Bulletin has been included in the Scopus citation database and is the only journal fully dedicated to the multidisciplinary area of nuclear safeguards. The European Commission’s Publication Office publishes the ESARDA Bulletin.

The Editors, together with the Editorial Board, manage the Bulletin. They are responsible for the selection and reviewing process of the manuscripts. Furthermore, the Editors handle the bureaucratic processes for publishing and distribution of the publication, as well as setting up the rules and policies of this publication.
