Abstract: The Practice Periodical of Hazardous, Toxic, and Radioactive Waste Management publishes articles relating to the allied engineering and scientific disciplines involved in the environmental aspects of the management of hazardous, toxic, and radioactive waste (HTRW). These include the traditional areas of investigation, design, and construction and the related areas of planning, analysis, oversight, operations, regulations, and policy. This publication offers articles with practical approaches and solutions as well as application oriented research to the problems and challenges faced by practicing engineers, scientists, and government policymakers. Photographs and drawings are desirable; illustrative graphs and tables may be included; theoretical or lengthy formulas are discouraged. Two reviews are required for approval for publication or rejection, and the review period is very brief. Articles must relate to real-life implementation of solutions rather than research. Research-oriented papers received for review will be forwarded to the appropriate ASCE journal editor for evaluation. Articles must be technically sound and be of interest and value to a significant number of practicing engineers, scientists, and contractors in the HTRW field.
