It examines the size of the UK nuclear physics community, its funding, the balance between subfields and the division of effort between theory and experiment, and makes a comparison of the UK's research with that of other leading countries.

It is the first in a series of reviews into the major branches of physics in preparation for the next government Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR), which are intended to inform IOP policy.
