Frontiers journals are at the top of citation and impact metrics
This section aims to publish significant original research results on all aspect of nuclear energy science, technology and engineering covering both fission and fusion. This section particularly welcomes submissions on the following topical areas:
Advancements in fission nuclear technology:
• Nuclear fuels, fuel cycles and management
• Direct conversion of nuclear energy sources
• Reactor component technology
• Decommissioning technologies
• Structural analysis
• Nuclear Aerosols
• Breeding materials
Advancements in fusion nuclear technology:
• Fusion neutronics, fusion reactor safety and reactor systems
• Fusion energy engineering
• Plasma engineering including inertial confinement fusion
Advancements in reactor design and safety:
• Instrumentational and control, thermal hydraulics, system and component technology
• Computational and code development and analysis
• Energy cost, nuclear non-proliferation and safeguard
• safety and risk assessment, operation and maintenance, plant life extension, - both mainly fission
Contributions dealing with policy or economics of nuclear energy, fundamental aspects of nuclear physics and the effects of nuclear energy on health fall outside the scope of this section.

PMCID: coming soon for all published articles
Nuclear Energy welcomes submissions of the following article types: Brief Research Report, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge and Technology and Code.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Nuclear Energy, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Nuclear Energy will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Energy Research.
