Scientometrics has emerged as one of the prominent and fast-growing fields in the Library and Information Sciences. The present study also deals with the scientometric aspect of one of the prominent fields of Nuclear Science and Technology i.e. Nuclear Waste Management. The data for the said study has been collected from the Web of Science database over the period 1989-2019. The results reveal that a total of 1824 publications have been published on Nuclear Waste Management and the highest number has been contributed by the USA (23.7%) of the total global output. Most of the Nuclear Waste Management literature is published in Journal Articles, the prominent journal being ATW International Journal for Nuclear Power. Multi authorship trend is more dominant than single authorship. The US Department of Energy and Commissariat A L' Energie Atomique (CEA), France are the topmost contributors. Since, the data were collected from one database only; cautions should be taken while generalizing the results.
