Published monthly, ACS
Nano is an international forum for the communication of comprehensive articles
on nanoscience and nanotechnology research at the interfaces of chemistry, biology,
materials science, physics, toxicology, and engineering. Moreover, the journal
helps facilitate communication among scientists from these research communities
in developing new research opportunities, advancing the field through new discoveries,
and reaching out to scientists at all levels.
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.
In addition to comprehensive, original research articles, ACS
Nano offers thorough reviews, perspectives on cutting-edge research, conversations
with nanoscience and nanotechnology thought leaders, and discussions of topics
that provide distinctive views about the future of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The 2009 ISI Impact Factor for ACS
Nano for has increased to 7.493*, with 3,313 citations in 2009, up over
300% from 2008. Launched mid-year in 2007, ACS Nano is already in the top 5
in impact factor in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology and in the top 10 in both
Multidisciplinary Chemistry and also Multidisciplinary Materials Science. And
citations continue to increase - over 3,000 citations in the first 6 months
