Rapid increase in the number of nanotechnology and nanoscience periodicals
(Nanowerk News) Going hand in hand with the rise of research funding and commercial investment into nanotechnology, publishers are not standing by idle – they keep rolling out journals, magazines, newsletter, and book series dedicated wholly or primarily to nanosciences and nanotechnologies.
Over the past few years, the number of these periodicals (not taking into account individual books, of course) has risen to over 230 titles – and counting. For instance, there are numerous planned journals for which ISSNs have been formally requested but that haven't been published yet.
Like all other Nanowerk databases and directories, these listings are freely accessible on the Nanowerk website.
As of today, the Nanowerk Nanotechnology Periodicals directory has 237 entries that include 195 academic journals, 13 newsletters, 25 book series, and 4 popular or trade magazine formats from around the world. Of these, 55 titles are open access.
A valuable addition to other Nanowerk services like the Nanomaterial Database™, the NanoCatalog section, various directories, or a packed events calendar, the Nanotechnology Periodicals directory is yet another example of Nanowerk's continuing effort to provide relevant and high-quality content and services to the nanotechnology community that go far beyond just printing press releases.
Nanowerk.com is the authoritative website when it comes to information on all aspects of nanotechnologies. Nanowerk's high-quality science and business content is unmatched and highly relevant for a target audience involved in nanotechnologies, biotechnologies, chemistry, material sciences and engineering, medical technologies and pharmaceuticals, electronics, laboratory equipment, and all sectors involving state-of-the-art process technologies.
Unlike other nanotech websites, Nanowerk writes its own editorial content – Nanowerk Spotlights – resulting in a library with currently almost 1200 articles. This Nanowerk-exclusive feature, which has become a highly popular information source for academia and industry alike, looks at what's hot and new from around the globe. Some stories are more like an introduction to nanotechnology, some are about understanding current developments, and some are advanced reviews of leading edge research.
