Telling the world about nuclear physics

Mackintosh, Raymond S. (2001). Telling the world about nuclear physics. Physics Education, 36(1) pp. 35–39.



Nuclear physics has a particular public relations problem with deep historical roots. Some of the steps being taken by the nuclear physics community to counter this are described in this article.
