Please read this page before submitting a paper to JNMM.
JNMM reviews papers for publication with the understanding that the work was not previously published and is not being reviewed for publication elsewhere. This restriction includes papers presented at the INMM Annual Meeting. Papers may be of any length. All papers must include an abstract. The Journal of Nuclear Materials Management is an English-language publication.
We encourage all authors to have their papers reviewed by editors or professional translators for proper English usage prior to submission.
Papers should be submitted as Word files only. Graphic elements must be sent in JPEG or GIF formats as separate electronic files. Submissions may be made via email to Managing Editor Patricia Sullivan at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Papers are acknowledged upon receipt and are submitted promptly for review and evaluation. Generally, the corresponding author is notified within ninety days of submission of the original paper whether the paper is accepted, rejected, or subject to revision. Papers requiring major revisions are subject to a full re-review.
Format: All papers must include:
- Corresponding author's complete name, telephone number and email address
- Name and address of the organization where the work was performed
- Tables, figures, and photographs in TIFF, JPEG, or GIF formats. Color is preferred.
- Numbered references in the following format:
- 1. Jones, F. T., and L. K. Chang. 1980. Article Title. Journal 47(No. 2): 112–118.
- 2. Jones, F. T. 1976. Title of Book, New York: McMillan Publishing.
- Author(s) biography and photos

The Journal of Nuclear Materials Management does not print “foot notes.” We publish references and/or end notes. If you choose to include both references and notes, you may combine them under the same heading or you may keep them separate, in which case you must use numbers for the References (1., 2., 3., etc.) and letters (A., B., C., etc.) for the End Notes.
JNMM is published digitally in full color. Color graphics and images are preferred.
Peer Review: Each paper is reviewed by at least one associate editor and by two or more reviewers. Papers are evaluated according to their relevance and significance to nuclear materials safeguards, degree to which they advance knowledge, quality of presentation, soundness of methodology, and appropriateness of conclusions.
Author Review: Accepted manuscripts become the permanent property of INMM and may not be published elsewhere without permission from the managing editor. Authors are responsible for all statements made in their work.
