Nanoscale Advances, a new journal from the Royal Society of Chemistry, launches in partnership with leading nanoscience research centre the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST), in Beijing, China.
Nanoscale Advances will showcase interdisciplinary advances across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology, and offers a home for research from all over the world.
The new journal joins our nanoscale family, which also includes the high impact Nanoscale Horizons and community-spanning Nanoscale, and will be open access from launch. For the first two years, we are waiving all article processing charges, so until mid-2021 the journal will be completely free to publish in, as well as free to read.
The president of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, Chunli Bai, will lead the new editorial board. A team of experienced associate editors – many of whom also look after Nanoscale – will support him. They will be looking for good quality, reproducible new work that makes an important advance to the existing literature.
Dr Emma Wilson, Director of Publishing, says, "We are excited to once again work with our partners the NCNST to launch our new journal Nanoscale Advances, which will make a wide range of nanotechnology research available to a global audience.
"The Royal Society of Chemistry is committed to supporting long-term, sustainable open access models, which is why the journal will be gold open access from launch. We hope that this journal will give authors working in the field of nanoscience and technology a good quality, interdisciplinary option for publishing their work open access, and will be a beneficial new resource for the nanoscience community."
Nanoscale Advances will publish work in the form of communications, full papers and reviews. The first issue of this monthly journal will be published in January 2019, with advance articles appearing online later this year.
