ASNT’s publications development activities are your opportunity to present your work in print and make a positive difference and stand out in the NDT crowd.  Whether you are interested in writing an article, a chapter or an entire book, ASNT’s Publications Department is eager to hear from you.

Materials Evaluation

Materials Evaluation (M.E.), the flagship journal of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing, is an abstracted, archival, peer-reviewed journal. Published monthly, Materials Evaluation welcomes original papers on NDT applications and on applied NDT research. Subject matter may cover traditional and nontraditional areas of nondestructive testing. Click here to submit an article to M.E.

The NDT Technician

The NDT Technician (TNT) provides valuable information for NDT practitioners and is a means for discussing issues relevant to the NDT profession. This quarterly newsletter is written for NDT technicians and Level I and Level II practitioners. TNT seeks authors to write articles on emerging technology, training and education, and safety. Articles should be written in a way that introduces readers to the fundamentals of NDT, its methods, applications and technologies. Click here for more information.

Research in Nondestructive Evaluation

Research in Nondestructive Evaluation (RNDE) is the research journal of the American Society for Nondestructive Testing. RNDE is published quarterly by the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, offices of The Taylor & Francis Group LLC and will publish the results of original research in nondestructive evaluation. 

Prospective authors are encouraged to submit manuscripts that cover experimental and theoretical investigations dealing with the scientific and engineering bases of NDE, its measurement methodology and a wide range of applications of materials and structures that relate to the entire life cycle, from manufacture to use and retirement. 

All manuscripts should be submitted to RNDE using the journal’s online web-based submission process located at mc.manuscriptcentral.com/urnd. First time users see Getting Started

Educational Materials Development

Partnering with both volunteers and contracted authors, ASNT publishes a wide variety of educational materials ranging from study guides, standards, instructional materials and method-specific NDT materials. Subject matter experts with in-depth knowledge and an understanding of any of the various methods and techniques used in nondestructive testing, good communication skills and proven writing ability are encouraged to participate.

Nondestructive Testing Handbook Series

The Nondestructive Testing Handbook series and related Industry Handbook publications provide readers with basic NDT knowledge. Each handbook is the result of a collaborative effort involving dozens of contributors including chapter authors, technical editors, coordinators, reviewers and ASNT staff. The typical handbook reader can be described as someone who has completed three years of college and is working toward a degree in engineering or materials science.
