About the Journal

Journal of Research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology aims to publish original research at the forefront of nanoscience scale and nanotechnology across all disciplines. The journal's scope encompasses the study of both fundamental phenomena at the nanoscale and applications of these phenomena. 'Nanotechnology' is taken to include the ability to individually address, control, and modify structures, materials and devices with nanometre precision, and the synthesis of such structures into systems of micro- and macroscopic dimensions. To be publishable in the journal, articles must meet the highest scientific quality standards, contain significant and original new science, and make substantial advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology scale. Research on the synthesis of materials should contain a significant innovation either in methodology, materials or demonstrated application. Through its unique mixture of peer-reviewed articles, the latest research news, and information on key developments, the journal provides comprehensive coverage of this exciting and dynamic field. Therefore, this journal welcomes the most significant original articles and forward-looking reviews on all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. To ensure high editorial standards, every submitted article is initially assessed by the editors of the journal before being sent to independent referees. Articles can be rejected without refereeing after this initial assessment by the editors.

Contributions Include a Variety of Topics Such as:

  • Synthesis of nanostructured materials in the context of natural or synthetic materials
  • Functionalization and size-dependent properties of nanocrystals, quantum dots, and nanowires.
  • Processing and templating of nanotubes and nanoporous materials.
  • Tailoring of polymeric nanomaterials, nanoparticles, organic-inorganic nanocomposites, bionanocomposites, nanofibers, nanohybrids materials.
  • Design and engineering of structural and functional nanomaterials.
  • Nanosystems for biological, medical, drug delivery, chemical, catalytic, energy and environmental applications.
  • Nanodevices for magnetic, imaging, diagnostic, photonic, electronic and sensor applications.
