  • An interdisciplinary journal devoted to Nanoparticle science and technology
  • Focuses on concepts, properties, phenomena, and processes related to particles, tubes, layers, macromolecules, clusters and other finite structures of the nanoscale size range
  • Covers synthesis, assembly, transport, reactivity, and stability, and emphasizes realization and application of systems, structures and devices with novel functions obtained via precursor nanoparticles
  • 96% of authors who answered a survey reported that they would definitely publish or probably publish in the journal again

The Journal of Nanoparticle Research is a monthly peer-reviewed journal that explores the specific concepts, properties, phenomena and processes of structures at the nanoscale.

Coverage includes synthesis, assembly, transport, reactivity, and stability, and emphasizes realization and application of systems, structures and devices with novel functions obtained via precursor nanoparticles.
The Journal fosters the interdisciplinary dissemination of knowledge by encouraging synergetic approaches originating from a wide range of disciplines, such as Physics, Chemistry, Biology and Health Care.

Perspectives now available for free online
Perspective articles have a wide breadth of appeal because they evaluate research, industrial and societal trends centered around nanotechnology. See the bigger picture!

    Aims and Scope

    Close

    The objective of the Journal of Nanoparticle Research is to disseminate knowledge of the physical, chemical and biological phenomena and processes in structures that have at least one lengthscale ranging from molecular to approximately 100 nm (or submicron in some situations), and exhibit improved and novel properties that are a direct result of their small size.

    Nanoparticle research is a key component of nanoscience, nanoengineering and nanotechnology.

    The focus of the Journal is on the specific concepts, properties, phenomena, and processes related to particles, tubes, layers, macromolecules, clusters and other finite structures of the nanoscale size range. Synthesis, assembly, transport, reactivity, and stability of such structures are considered. Development of in-situ and ex-situ instrumentation for characterization of nanoparticles and their interfaces should be based on new principles for probing properties and phenomena not well understood at the nanometer scale. Modeling and simulation may include atom-based quantum mechanics; molecular dynamics; single-particle, multi-body and continuum based models; fractals; other methods suitable for modeling particle synthesis, assembling and interaction processes. Realization and application of systems, structures and devices with novel functions obtained via precursor nanoparticles is emphasized. Approaches may include gas-, liquid-, solid-, and vacuum-based processes, size reduction, chemical- and bio-self assembly. Contributions include utilization of nanoparticle systems for enhancing a phenomenon or process and particle assembling into hierarchical structures, as well as formulation and the administration of drugs. Synergistic approaches originating from different disciplines and technologies, and interaction between the research providers and users in this field, are encouraged. The content of the Journal is at the intersection of various scientific and technological areas, including particle technology, colloids, aerosols, multiphase systems, solid state physics, chemistry and macromolecular science, materials engineering, pharmacy, microcontamination, emission control, environment and health effects, biotechnology and biomedicine, sensors and electronics.

    Journal of Nanoparticle Research publishes:

    Original peer-reviewed full scientific papers (about 3/4 of its contents)
    Letters to the editor for timely dissemination of scientific breakthroughs (in the section on 'Brief Communications'). An accelerated review process will insure a short publication cycle for brief communications.
    Short technical statements on novel technologies and applications (in the section on 'Technology and Applications').
    A regular editorial/commentary page called 'Perspectives'. Perspective articles have a wide breadth of appeal because they evaluate research, industrial and societal trends centered around nanotechnology. The Editor-in-Chief will coordinate this activity.
    The Journal will invite leaders in the field for 'Review papers'.
