The nanoscience section of Frontiers in Chemistry is a peer-reviewed, international and interdisciplinary section that focuses on all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Submissions are solicited in all topical areas, ranging from basic aspects of the nanomaterials to practical applications of such materials. This section publishes comprehensive articles on synthesis, assembly, characterization, theory, and simulation of nanostructures (nanomaterials and assemblies, nanodevices, and self-assembled structures), nanobiotechnology, nanofabrication, methods and tools for nanoscience and nanotechnology, and self- and directed-assembly. Using the Frontiers innovative review system and open access model, the goal is to provide researchers with the breakthroughs of relevance to nanoscience and stimulate pioneering study in the related fields by publishing outstanding research publications, review articles, commentaries, and ideas about various aspects of nanoscience.
Specific topics covered in the nanoscience section include, but are not limited to the following:
0D nanomaterials, such as QDs, C dots, nanoclusters etc.
1D nanomaterials, such as nanotubes, nanowires etc.
2D nanomaterials, such as graphene, black phosphorus, BN, etc.
Assembly – self-, directed- assembly
Molecular machines and motors
Nanomaterials for bioapplication and biomedicine
Environmental and biological impact of nanomaterials
Indexed in: PubMed Central, Scopus, Web of Science, Google Scholar, DOAJ, CrossRef, Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), CLOCKSS
PMCID: all published articles receive a PMCID
Nanoscience welcomes submissions of the following article types: Book Review, Code, Correction, Data Report, Editorial, Erratum, General Commentary, Hypothesis and Theory, Methods, Mini Review, Opinion, Original Research, Perspective, Protocols, Review, Specialty Grand Challenge, Systematic Review and Technology Report.
All manuscripts must be submitted directly to the section Nanoscience, where they are peer-reviewed by the Associate and Review Editors of the specialty section.
Articles published in the section Nanoscience will benefit from the Frontiers impact and tiering system after online publication. Authors of published original research with the highest impact, as judged democratically by the readers, will be invited by the Chief Editor to write a Frontiers Focused Review - a tier-climbing article. This is referred to as "democratic tiering". The author selection is based on article impact analytics of original research published in all Frontiers specialty journals and sections. Focused Reviews are centered on the original discovery, place it into a broader context, and aim to address the wider community across all of Chemistry.
