Nuclear Science References (NSR) for Phys. Rev. C Authors

Submit NSR keywords to improve the visibility of your paper

The NSR database is the world's only comprehensive source of low- and intermediate-energy nuclear physics bibliographical information that contains more than 200,000 articles since the beginning of nuclear science.

The main goal of NSR is to provide bookmarks for the experimental and theoretical articles in nuclear science using keywords. NSR keywords are assigned to articles that contain results on atomic nuclei and masses, nuclear decays, nuclear reactions and other properties. Keywords are also used to build author and subject indexes, which allow users to search for articles by subject or author.

Thank you! Your submission has been sent.

Why Keywords by Authors?

Authors have the best knowledge of the content of their articles. Keywords inform the reader of the results reported in an article and what the authors have concluded from these results

Use the form below to submit NSR keywords and improve the visibility of your paper

Instructions for Keywording

Authors are encouraged to look at the NSR keywords for similar articles before keywording their own and/or consult the NSR Manual (140 KB)

McMaster University Java Swing keywording application is available for advanced computer users. Swing operation will require JRE (Java Runtime Environment) installation.

Keywords should be in the form used in NSR. Please refer to the Keyword Examples below.

  • Articles that contain information on nuclei, decays and/or nuclear reactions.
  • Select the correct NSR topic from the list of seven given below.
  • List all nuclei, decays and/or nuclear reactions.
  • Use measured as action word for experimental papers, and calculated/analyzed for theoretical papers.
  • List measured or calculated/analyzed quantities.
  • List deduced quantities, if applicable.
  • Provide additional relevant information such as primary beam/target specification for radioactive incident beams, nuclear structure or reaction models used for interpretation of results, systematics, etc.

NSR Topics


Please note: Keywords should be received before the print publication of the article in order for the database to be updated in a timely fashion. Include the first author's name and the full title of the paper as it will appear in the journal.

When submitting entries, spell out the names of greek symbols. All entries will be edited at the NNDC, so it is not necessary that the contributed keywords have exactly the right format. However, please proofread your entries carefully to avoid typographical errors which may lead to misinterpretation of the intended keywords.

Keyword Examples

<KEYWORDS>NUCLEAR REACTIONS 197Au(82Ge, 82Ge'), E=89.4 MeV/nucleon; 197Au(84Se, 84Se'), E=95.4 MeV/nucleon; 9Be(82Ge, 82Ge'), E=87.6 MeV/nucleon; 9Be(84Se, 84Se'), E=92 MeV/nucleon, [82Ge and 84Se secondary beams from 9Be(86Kr, X), E=140 MeV/nucleon]; measured Eγ, Iγ, σ, (particle)γ-coin; 82Ge, 84Se; deduced levels, J, B(E2), T1/2. Intermediate energy Coulomb excitation and inelastic scattering. Comparison with systematics of B(E2) values for first 2+ state in N=50 isotones for Z(even)=30-42 and even-even Ge (A=64-82) and Se (A=68-84) isotopes, and with shell-model calculations. Systematics of first 3- states in even-even Se (A=74-82) and N=50 isotones.

Please note: Inverse kinematics reactions use the same terminology for target and beam specification as in fixed-target reaction, e.g. Target(beam,outgoing particles).

<KEYWORDS>NUCLEAR STRUCTURE 152Nd, 154,156Sm; calculated energy levels, J, π, B(E2), related features for 2+ states using interactive boson model.

<KEYWORDS>RADIOACTIVITY 201At, 205Fr(EC) [from U(p, X), E=1.4 GeV]; measured Eγ, Iγ, ce, γγ-, γ(ce)-coin, half-lives, K-conversion coefficients, and EC/β+ branching ratios. 201Po, 205Rn; deduced levels, J, π, multipolarity, and logft. Systematics of 3/2- and 13/2+ states in Pb, Po, and Rn nuclei with N=117, 119, 121 and 123.
