About NDT


NDT (ISSN 2813-477X) is an international, open access journal on non-destructive testing science, technology, and their applications. NDT publishes regular research papers (articles), reviews, technical notes, and short communications. The journal’s focus covers three major areas: (i) the collection, processing, modeling, fusion, and interpretation of data to enhance research for standalone non-destructive methods and their applications; (ii) the development of a multisource, multiscale, and multitemporal diagnostics and monitoring resource; (iii) the design and implementation of state-of-the-art technological solutions exploiting new paradigms throughout the use of different physical and working principles of sensing. The journal aims to be a leader in research in the NDT area of science through the dissemination of more inclusive and interdisciplinary theoretical, numerical, and practical scientific contributions. The goal is to enhance the capabilities of conventional and emerging technology in new investigation settings and complex scenarios.


Areas of interest include—but they are not limited to—archaeology and forensic engineering, geophysics, mechanical engineering, petroleum engineering, electrical and electronics engineering, civil and environmental engineering, systems engineering, aeronautical engineering, data science and artificial intelligence, medicine and biological sciences, and art.

The main journal scopes are as follows:
  • Advances in NDT methods, theories, and new developments (standalone or combined use of conventional and state-of-the-art NDTs);
  • Sensing, processing, integration, and fusion of multisource, multiscale, and multitemporal data and information from NDT technologies;
  • Innovation and research for the development of new, fully deployed, and prototype standalone or multisensing hardware and software technology;
  • ICT for NDT data management and visualization;
  • Contributions of NDTs for the development of new standards, policies, and best practices.
