WM Symposia Journal

WM Symposia is launching the WMS Journal to add value to the global radioactive waste community, to those who present papers at the annual WMS conference in Arizona and to further the educational mission of WMS. Initially, the WMS Journal will be published quarterly. We hope to expand the frequency with the goal being a monthly publication.

The WMS Journal will present papers on radioactive waste management, decommissioning, site remediation, packaging and transportation. Each issue's topics will be selected by the Editors and the Editorial Advisory Board. The content will initially be taken from the extensive WMS paper archive and from invited and volunteer submissions.

Our intent is to present papers and articles that advance the science, engineering and implementation of the broad field of radioactive waste management. The papers may be highly theoretical, numerical or practical. We expect that some of the content in the future will come from the many academic institutions that are involved in this field.

To further expand the reach of each article in the global community, we are implementing a set of procedures to link the content of each issue to Google Scholar and other scholarly databases.  

In the initial phase, the WMS Journal will be distributed free of charge to the many thousands of radioactive waste management specialist listed in the WMS database.  At some time in the future, WMS may establish a subscription charge, but no firm plans for this have been set.
