Special Issue "Studies on Nuclear Reactors"
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 29 February 2024 | Viewed by 850
In the pursuit of the goals of achieving peak carbon emissions and carbon neutrality, nuclear energy, as a clean energy source, is an effective way of meeting global energy demands. The application of nuclear reactors has been increasing, not only in electricity supply, but also in heat supply, seawater desalination, high temperature hydrogen production, etc. In recent years, many innovative nuclear reactor concepts, including molten salt reactors, very high temperature reactors, gas-cooled fast reactors, lead-cooled fast reactors, sodium-cooled fast reactors, and supercritical water reactors, have been proposed. Furthermore, nuclear reactors are designed at different scales (small modular reactors, microreactors, etc.) for specific application scenarios, such as mobile power supply, deep-sea operation, and space operation.
This Special Issue aims to present and disseminate the most recent advances related to the theory, experiment, design, and application of all types of nuclear reactors.
Topics of interest for publication include, but are not limited to:
- Reactor design and analysis;
- Reactor thermal hydraulics and safety;
- Reactor physics and neutronics;
- Nuclear fuel cycles;
- Innovative reactors and new applications;
- digital reactor and new technology;
- Waste management, spent fuel, decommissioning.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Energies is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2600 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
