Nanomaterials and nanotechnology journal welcomes submissions for Volume 2

(Nanowerk News) InTech open access publisher is pleased to announce the opening of Volume 2 of the scientfc journal Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology. This represents an excellent opportunity to invite contributons of original manuscripts to be peer-reviewed and included in the said journal. Nanomaterials and Nanotechnology does not apply article processing charges to submitng authors; all accepted submissions are free of any fees. The journal is free to read, share and download with no subscription required.
Launched in June 2011 under the editorship of Prof. Paola Prete, Volume 1 presented two issues published online in June and December 2011; each issue included 10 research papers selected among more than 100 manuscripts submited to be reviewed. One of the highlights of Volume 1 was the publication of the paper titled "Synthetic Aspects and Selected Properties of Graphene", co-authored by the world's foremost solid state and materials chemists who has made immense breakthroughs in the Nanomaterials feld over the last two decades, scientst Prof. Dr. C.N.R. Rao. Also, the manuscript "Magnetic Properties of Fe and Ni Doped SnO2 Nanoparticles" (By A. Sharma, M. Varshney, S. Kumar, K.D.Verma and R. Kumar) has caught the most atention of the nano community worldwide in terms of number of downloads.
Prof. Paola Prete, who obtained her PhD in Physics at the University of Bari in 1991 and was awarded for her outstanding research achievements by the Italian Association of Crystallography (AIC) in 2000, gives a little insight o what to expect from Volume 2,
"The opening paper is an Invited Review Artcle on the excitng topic of SERS on proteins from Prof. Chandrabhas Narayana and co-worker, Bangalore, India. The Volume will address among others, as regular contributons, some of the interestng topics in the feld, such as the electrical transport in functonalized SiNWs and in electrodeposited ZnCuTe nanowires, carbon nanotubes, nanopartcles and other subjects."
Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are emerging felds of science investigating materials and processes at the nanometer scale. By successfully convincing politicians and leaders around the world of the key roles and potentials of applications of nano research, many countries have instituted initiatives to promote Nnanoscience and Nanotechnology in their universities and labs. With the increase in funding, scientists are pursuing this research and the rate of discovery has increased dramatically. However, the feld being still in its growing stage of research exploitation, more scientifc input is sought in order to advance the area of nano studies to new heights.
