Nano Today Ranked Second Most Influential Nanoscience and Nanotechnology Journal Internationally
(Nanowerk News) Nano Today: An International Rapid Reviews Journal (Nano Today) continues to establish itself as an influential resource for the international research community since it moved to a journal format in 2009. According to the latest Journal Citation ReportsŪ published by Thomson Reuters, Nano Today received a 2009 Impact Factor of 13.237.
This new Impact Factor is not only higher than our second Impact Factor of 8.795 in 2008, but it also catapults our journal to the second position among all 59 titles in the ISI Nanoscience and Nanotechnology category. In addition, Nano Today now ranks 4th out of 212 journals in the Materials Science, Multidisciplinary category, and 4th out of 138 journals in the Chemistry, Multidisciplinary category.
The Journal Citation ReportsŪ are the recognized authority for evaluating journals, presenting quantitative data that supports a systematic and objective review of the world's leading journals, as well as their impact and influence in the global research community.
Nano Today is an international journal for researchers with interests across the whole spectrum of nanoscience and technology. We provide a peer-reviewed forum for the rapid publication of authoritative review articles, short communications, news and opinions to shape and define the frontiers of nanoscience and nanotechnology through their multidisciplinary applications.
"Due to their interdisciplinary nature, nanoscience and nanotechnology have tremendous potential to make a strong impact in areas such as biomedicine, chemical synthesis, energy generation and photonics. The latest Journal Citation ReportsŪ reflect a strong interest from the research community for the latest advancements in these important areas. We are delighted with our new Impact Factor and we will continue to serve our rapidly growing scientific community by keeping them abreast of the latest breakthroughs," shared Professor Jackie Y. Ying, Editor-in-Chief of Nano Today, who is also the Executive Director of the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology, Singapore, the world's first bioengineering and nanotechnology research institute.
"I am very proud of what this young journal has managed to achieve in such a short space of time. Authors are increasingly under pressure to choose wisely where they should publish their manuscripts, and they quite rightly want to see their results appear in a great quality publication. I think this result shows that they should look no further than to Nano Today," added Deborah Logan, Executive Publisher, Elsevier.
First and Second Nano Today Conferences
To promote the exchange of ideas and research findings in the nano community, Nano Today and IBN organized the first Nano Today Conference on August 2-5, 2009 in Biopolis, Singapore (www.nanotoday2009.com). Featuring plenary lectures by 3 pioneers of the field, 30 invited talks by leading scientists from 26 internationally renowned institutions, 75 contributed oral and 205 poster presentations by researchers from 33 countries, the inaugural Nano Today conference was attended by over 450 international delegates. The contributed presentations had been selected from over 600 abstract submissions from countries including Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belarus, Canada, China, Czech Republic, Denmark, France, Georgia, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Iran, Ireland, Israel, Italy, Japan, Kazakhstan, Korea, Malaysia, The Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Taiwan, Thailand, United Kingdom and the United States.
Nano Today and IBN are organizing the second Nano Today Conference on December 11-15, 2011 in Hawaii, USA (see attached flyer). Chaired by Professor Jackie Y. Ying, the 2nd Nano Today Conference will focus on the latest advances in nanostructured materials and systems for wide-ranging applications in fields such as electric, optical, magnetic and biomedical devices, chemical and biologics synthesis, energy generation and storage, as well as biomaterials and biomimetic systems.
