Each year PONI publishes two journals comprised of papers authored by rising experts in the field. The Conference Series Journal contains papers based on presentations at each year's Capstone conference, which features the best presentations from each year's three regional conferences. The Nuclear Scholars Initiative Journal features papers from each year's class of Nuclear Scholars - a group of top graduate students and young professionals in the nuclear field. These journals include articles that cover a wide array of topics and contain creative recommendations intended to inform the public debate on nuclear strategy and policy.
Conference Series Journal
At the conclusion of the yearly conference series, a selected group of presenters is invited to speak at the PONI Capstone Conference at Offutt Air Force Base, home of U.S. Strategic Command (STRATCOM). Articles based on these presentations are then published in PONI’s yearly collection of papers.
Nuclear Scholars Initiative
The yearly collection of papers from the Nuclear Scholars Initiative is comprised of the articles resulting from each scholar’s independent research during the course of their participation in the program.
