Nuclear Science and Technology (NST), an international journal of the Vietnam Atomic Energy Society (VAES) and Vietnam Atomic Energy Institute (VINATOM), quarterly publishes articles related to theory and application of nuclear science and technology. All papers and technical notes will be refereed. 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 transferred in VAES.

NST coves all fields of nuclear science and technology for peaceful utilization of nuclear energy and radiation. Authors should choose one of the following fields at the time they submit their manuscript: 1) Nuclear Physics, 2) Nuclear Data, 3) Reactor Physics, 4) Thermal Hydraulics, 5) Nuclear Safety, 6) Nuclear I&C, 7) Nuclear Fuel and Materials, 8) Radioactive Waste Management, 9) Radiation Protection, 10) Radiation Technology, 11) Nuclear Techniques in Food and Agriculture, 12) Nuclear Medicine and Radiotherapy, 13) Nuclear Techniques in Industries, 14) Environment Radioactivity, 15) Isotope Hydrology, 16) Nuclear Analytical Methods, 17) Health Physics, 18) Fusion and Laser Technology, 19) Nuclear Security; 20) Nuclear Safeguards.

Manuscripts must be written in English with adequate margins and indented paragraph. All manuscript must use SI (metric) units in text, figures, and tables. Manuscripts should in general be organized in the following order: title, names of authors and their complete affiliation 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 I, II,… for major headings and A, B,… for secondary headings.

Mathematical formulas: All mathematical formulas should be clearly written, with special consideration to distinctive legibility of sub-and superscripts. Equation (at least the principal ones) should be numbered consecutively using Arabic numerals in parentheses in the right hand margin.

Tables and Figures: Tables should be numbered with Roman numerals. 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 no repeat data which are available elsewhere in the paper. Figures should be original ink drawing 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 Fig. 2.

Reference: References should be listed at the end of the text and presented as follows:
