New nanotechnology journal 'Nanoscale' publishes first articles
(Nanowerk News) Specialists in the fields of nanoscience and nanotechnology have a new high quality resource at their fingertips courtesy of the online publication of the first articles for new journal Nanoscale.
The eagerly anticipated articles come just five months after the announcement that RSC Publishing would be expanding its nano portfolio with the launch of Nanoscale, a dedicated subject journal publishing experimental and theoretical work across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Ten Advance Articles are now freely available online and include a minireview by Amanda Barnard of CSIRO, Victoria, Australia, outlining computational strategies for predicting the potential risks associated with nanotechnology.
A feature article, 3 communications and 5 papers complete the first batch of articles.
Highlights include a paper by Peng Chen and colleagues in Singapore describing ultra-sensitive detection of adipocytokines with CMOS-compatible silicon nanowire arrays, while Miguel Correa-Duarte and coworkers at the University of Vigo, Spain, discuss label-free detection of relevant bioanalytes on silver-coated carbon nanotubes, using cocaine as a case study.
The enthusiasm with which the new journal has been welcomed by the community is reflected in the calibre and breadth of science submitted for the inaugural Nanoscale issues. Editor-in-Chief for Europe, Markus Niederberger is delighted by the content being received, "The full spectrum of nanoscience from the very first issue on!"
