Here are some of the best nanotechnology journals in the world. Most of these journals are dedicated to nanoscience and nanotechnology research but few of them have a broader scope. These journals were highly ranked in the SCImago journal and country ranking (one of the highly respected ranking institute) website and the ranking is based on the information obtained from Scopus scientific database. These journals are extremely useful to read of some of the most exciting research work that is happening around the work.
Although, access to abstract in all these journals is free, full access to a papers would cost money. However, you can always write to the corresponding author for full paper, and most of the authors usually send it. One can always search for the author and find their profiles at ResearchGate or Google Scholar. Authors usually submit their work in these community websites. If they haven’t already you can request the full text.
Nature nanotechnology: Nature Nanotechnology is a multidisciplinary journal that publishes papers of the highest quality and significance in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology. The journal covers research into the design, characterization and production of structures, devices and systems that involve the manipulation and control of materials and phenomena at atomic, molecular and macromolecular scales. Both bottom-up and top-down approaches – and combinations of the two – are covered.Nature Nanotechnology also encourages the exchange of ideas between chemists, physicists, material scientists, biomedical researchers, engineers and other researchers who are active at the frontiers of this diverse and multidisciplinary field.
Nano Letters: Nano Letters reports on fundamental research in all branches of the theory and practice of nanoscience and nanotechnology, providing rapid disclosure of the key elements of a study, publishing preliminary, experimental, and theoretical results on the physical, chemical, and biological phenomena. Among the areas of interest the journal covers are:
•Synthesis and processing of organic, inorganic, and hybrid nanosized materials by physical, chemical, and biological methods
•Modeling and simulation of synthetic, assembly, and interaction processes
•Characterization of size-dependent properties
•Realization and application of novel nanostructures and nanodevices
Advanced materials: Advanced Materials has been bringing you the latest progress in materials science for over 25 years. Read carefully selected, top-quality Reviews, Progress Reports, Communications, and Research News at the cutting edge of the chemistry and physics of functional materials. One key to the success of Advanced Materials is its pronounced interdisciplinary, manifested in its rare listing in six different topic categories.
Nano Today: Nano Today is the international magazine for researchers with interests across the whole of nanoscience and technology and is now covered by Thomson Scientific. Through its unique mixture of peer-reviewed articles, the latest research news, and information on key developments, Nano Today provides comprehensive coverage of this exciting and dynamic new field.
ACS Nano: 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, and self- and directed-assembly.
Advanced Functional Materials:Advanced Functional Materials is the leading full-paper materials science journal, with a 2008 ISI Impact Factor of 6.808. Advanced Functional Materials publishes full papers of original research and feature articles reviewing cutting-edge work from leaders in the field. All aspects of materials science are covered, including photovoltaics, organic electronics, carbon materials, nanotechnology, liquid crystals, magnetic materials, surfaces and interfaces, and biomaterials.
The Journal of physical Chemistry :The Journal of Physical Chemistry (JPC) Letters is devoted to reporting new and original experimental and theoretical basic research of interest to physical chemists, biophysical chemists, chemical physicists, physicists, material scientists, and engineers. An important criterion for acceptance is that the paper reports a significant scientific advance and/or physical insight such that rapid publication is essential. Two issues of JPC Letters are published each month.
Small :Science at the nano- and microscale is currently receiving enormous wordwide interest. Small provides the very best forum for experimental and theoretical studies of fundamental and applied interdisciplinary research at these dimensions. Read an attractive mix of peer-reviewed Communications, Reviews, Concepts, Highlights, Essays, and Full Papers.
With its increased Impact Factor of 6.525 for 2008, Small continues to be among the top multidisciplinary journals covering a broad spectrum of topics at the nano- and microscale at the interface of materials science, chemistry, physics, engineering, medicine, and biology. Small is ranked in the Top 10 in all its ISI categories.
Nano Research: Nano Research is a peer-reviewed, international and interdisciplinary research journal that focuses on all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Submissions are solicited in all topical areas, ranging from basic aspects of the science of nanoscale materials to practical applications of such materials.
Nanoscale :Nanoscale is a high impact international journal, publishing high quality research across nanoscience and nanotechnology. Nanoscale publishes a full mix of research articles on experimental and theoretical work, including reviews, communications and full papers. Highly interdisciplinary, Nanoscale appeals to scientists, researchers and professionals interested in nanoscience and nanotechnology, including the areas of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, materials, energy/environment, information technology, detection science, healthcare and drug discovery, and electronics.
