Nuclear Science Abstracts (NSA)

This special view of historical NSA records is sponsored by the International Atomic Energy Agency's International Nuclear Information System (INIS) in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Energy's Office of Scientific and Technical Information (DOE OSTI), the database owner.

NSA is a comprehensive collection of international nuclear science and technology literature for the period 1948 through 1976, pre-dating the prestigious INIS database, which began in 1970. NSA existed as a printed product (Volumes 1-33) initially, created by DOE's predecessor, the U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (AEC). NSA includes citations to scientific and technical reports from the AEC, the U.S. Energy Research and Development Administration and its contractors, plus other agencies and international organizations, universities, and industrial and research organizations. References to books, conference proceedings, papers, patents, dissertations, engineering drawings, and journal articles from worldwide sources are also included.

Abstracts and full text are provided if available.

While downloading and printing of selected citations from this version of NSA is allowed, inclusion of such references in other databases is prohibited.
