The review deals the investigation of glass doped with elements exhibiting high cross-section for shielding against the neutrons and gamma-ray radiation. The attenuation ability of pure gamma-ray, fast neutrons, slow neutrons, and total gamma rays is reviewed and discussed. A short literature review on the glass materials for nuclear radiation shielding is also given.
