A joint monograph of scientists from different countries
Already during the war, the Institute for Safety Problems of Nuclear Power Plants of the NAS of Ukraine published a monograph based on the results of the joint work of scientists from 10 countries as part of a grant from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA).
In the monograph, the results of the work are presented in separate sections. Authors from Ukraine participated in the preparation of the monograph, among them: M. Panasiuk, I. Kovalenko, N. Sosonna, and M. Buzynyi. The text of the monograph was submitted for printing to the “Fenix” publishing house before the war began. The extraordinary feature of the history of the preparation of this publication is that before the war, the monograph model was transferred to a printing house located in the city of Makarov, which was under occupation. The building of the printing house was completely destroyed. Despite the fact that there was literally no living space left on the territory of the printing house, everything burned down, the circulation of the already finished monograph miraculously survived. When the city was deoccupied and the Russian troops withdrew, the publishing house transferred the circulation to the Institute.
The full text of the monograph and the section prepared by the staff of the ISP NPP can be found at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6660132 and https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.6660381, respectively. The IAEA showed interest in the monograph, asking to send copies to 9 countries, scientists from which participated in the preparation of the manuscript materials: Argentina, Brazil, Lithuania, Italy, Morocco, Pakistan, China, Vietnam and Japan. Specialists from Ukraine, India, Kuwait, Ecuador and other countries are also showing interest.
