Journal Scope

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, 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.

ACS Nano 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.

ACS Nano received the 2008 Association of American Publishers’ Award for Best New Journal in the category of Science, Technology, and Medicine.

ACS Nano has a 2010 Impact Factor of 9.865, a 32% increase from 2009, and still rising! It is ranked in the top 5 in the Nanoscience & Nanotechnology and the Multidisciplinary Materials Science category and in the top 10 in both Multidisciplinary Chemistry. In 2010, ACS Nano had 9,914 citations, a 199% increase from 2009. The journal has already received 17,000+ citations in 2011 year-to-date.
