A new peer reviewed journal publishing experimental and theoretical work across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology
Nanoscale is a collaborative venture between RSC Publishing and a leading nanoscience research centre, the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) in Beijing, China.
The journal publishes fortnightly issues, complementing and building on the nano content already published across the RSC Publishing journal portfolio.
Since its launch in late 2009, Nanoscale has quickly established itself as a platform for high-quality community-spanning research which bridges the various disciplines involved with nanoscience and nanotechnology, publishing important research from leading international research groups.
Nanoscale received its first full impact factor of 5.91 in June 2012. This is an excellent start for the journal and we aspire to even higher impact and quality in future years.
