Nagasaki University to Launch English Journal on Nuclear Disarmament (News)


Tokyo, Sept. 4 (Jiji Press)—Nagasaki University said Monday it will launch an English-language academic journal on nuclear disarmament.

"We'd like to bring up the issue of what tragic results nuclear arms and wars have caused, based on scientific evidence," university president Katamine Shigeru told a press conference in Tokyo.

Katamine also criticized North Korea for conducting its sixth nuclear test on Sunday.

The Journal for Peace and Nuclear Disarmament will publish its first issue early next year. The university's Research Center for Nuclear Weapons Abolition will be in charge of editing.

The journal will be released online for free twice a year by a British publishing company.
