Journal of Nano Research
The topics covered by the journal relate to all “nano” related areas of research and development work. The subjects covered include the following:
1. Physical Sciences 2. Life Sciences 3. Theoretical and Computational Science and Engineering.
Note from Nobel Laureate Professor Sir H. W. Kroto:
As Chemistry and Physics at one borderline and Chemistry and Biology at the other become indistinguishable so crossdisciplinary research is leading to the fascinating “new” overarching field of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (N&N). Ingenious strategies for the creation of molecules and extended atomic structures with complex exactly-specified infrastructures and function are being developed – basically nanoscale devices that “do things” are now being created. New experimental approaches which focus on how atoms assemble are leading to the production of novel nanostructures and research is focusing on the control of self-assembly processes ie the bottom-up approach to the production of materials with advanced function. This new approach is leading to novel advanced materials with exciting new applications. Fascinating fundamental insights into formation mechanisms are being revealed and nanoscale devices, which parallel devices in standard engineering are now being created. This new journal, Journal of Nano Research, has been born at the ideal moment and is set to become a leading source of N&N research, essentially the “Frontier Chemistry of the 21st Century”. Breakthroughs are presently being realised which are generating a paradigm shift in synthetic chemical assembly techniques. On the horizon are applications ranging from civil engineering to advanced molecular electronics so promising to transform our everyday technology as well as basic economics.
Note from the editors:
Nanoscience and nanotechnology brought up an unprecedented excitement in the scientific and engineering communities, especially the last decade. The recent revolutionary advances in nanoscale phenomena open exciting, new avenues for research and discovery. The Journal of Nano Research (JNanoR) is a new venue for publishing original work in this ever evolving field. The journal is published by Trans Tech Publishers (Switzerland) and sponsored by the newly founded Society of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (SNN), an organization that serves the “nano” community worldwide. Nobel Laureate Professor Sir Harold W. Kroto serves as Honorary President of SNN and Honorary Editor-in-Chief for the Journal.
The potential contributions of advances in nanoscale phenomena to improving human health created even more excitement by envisioning new biomaterials, devices and techniques for biological detection and remediation. Thus, issues such as synthesis, fabrication and characterization of functional nanomaterials and nanostructures for biomedical applications (molecular recognition, nanotubes, nanowires, nanoparticles, self-assembly, polymer-based nanomaterials, thin films, medical imaging, diagnosis and therapy, etc.) become very important. In recognition of this potential, we dedicated the inaugural issue of the journal to “Nanomaterials for Biological and Biomedical Applications”. All papers in this inaugural issue are invited research papers. The contributions range from synthesis and characterization of nanoparticles and nanostructures to computer science issues in bio nanotechnology being a clear testament of the breadth and interdisciplinary nature of the journal.
We would like to encourage you to submit some of your high quality work to this journal in the near future.
