Nuclear Engineering: Get Started
Topics covered include the nuclear fuel life cycle, fuel exploration and processing, nuclear power, fuel recycling, storage and waste remediation, radiation detection, and policy issues.
This research guide will get you started with data and information resources for learning and research in nuclear engineering, especially those collected and subscribed by the Arthur Lakes Library at Mines. If you have further questions, please contact our librarians using the Library Contact information below. Use the tabs above to navigate through the guide.
The School of Mines program in Nuclear Science and Engineering emphasizes the nuclear fuel life cycle. Subtopics include fuel exploration and processing, nuclear power systems production, design and operation, fuel recycling, storage and waste remediation, radiation detection and radiation damage as well as the policy issues surrounding each of these activities.
If you areoff-campus and have difficulties with accessing our resources, please see the Off Campus Access guidepage for help.
Inspec is a comprehensive database that includes bibliographic citations and indexed abstracts from publications in the fields of physics, electrical and electronic engineering, communications, computer science, control engineering, information technology, manufacturing and mechanical engineering, operations research, material science, oceanography, engineering mathematics, nuclear engineering, environmental science, geophysics, nanotechnology, biomedical technology and biophysics. It contains over 16 million records concerning high tech topics.
Compendex is the most comprehensive bibliographic database of scientific and technical engineering research available, covering all engineering disciplines. It includes millions of bibliographic citations and abstracts from thousands of engineering journals and conference proceedings.
Easily search across all subscribed products simultaneously using a common set of search fields for the most comprehensive results. Includes: Core Collection, Science Citation Index Expanded, Conference Proceedings Citation Index-Science, KCI-Korean Journal Database, Russian Science Citation Index, and SciELO Citation Index.
International Nuclear Information System (INIS) - The International Nuclear Information System (INIS) hosts one of the world's largest collections of published information on the peaceful uses of nuclear science and technology. The INIS Repository contains over 3.3 million bibliographic references and full-text documents of conventional and non-conventional literature, including scientific and technical reports, conference proceedings, patents and theses. It also maintains a collection of full text documents that would be difficult to obtain elsewhere
The SciTech Premium Collection provides full-text coverage for all the sciences, engineering, forestry, geography, homeland security and terrorism, International relations, mathematics, military and defense, public health and safety, and sustainability.
SciFinder is a means of accessing the Chemical Abstracts database using a powerful and intuitive search engine to find references to articles. Search for chemical data using a molecular formula, chemical name, chemical structure, reaction components, author name, or topic of interest.
Note: Database use restricted to current Mines-affiliates only and requires an individual user account to access. First-time users, please register with a Mines email address through this link at http://libguides.mines.edu/scifinder_reg
This database provides a simple search interface to all ASCE publications. The database covers ASCE documents published back to 1890. It provides bibliographic access to all of the ASCE journals, conference proceedings, books, standards, manuals, magazines, and newsletters.
It may provide full-text access to some content through the ASCE Research Library.
arXiv provides open access to over a million e-prints in the fields of computer science, economics, electrical engineering and systems science, mathematics, physics, quantitative biology, quantitative finance, and statistics.
The contents of arXiv conform to Cornell University academic standards.
This database is recommended for those looking for policy and social science aspects of nuclear energy research. This scholarly resource contains indexing and abstracts for more than 8,500 journals, with full text for more than 4,600 of those titles. PDF backfiles to 1975 or further are available for well over 100 journals, and searchable cited references are provided for more than 1,000 titles.
Searches for scholarly materials such as peer-reviewed papers, theses, books, preprints, abstracts and technical reports from broad areas of research. It includes a variety of academic publishers, professional societies, preprint repositories and universities, as well as scholarly articles available across the web.
