American Chemical Society launches new nanoscience and nanotechnology journal

(Nanowerk News) The American Chemical Society (ACS) Publications Division has released the inaugural issue of ACS Nano, a new, peer-reviewed journal publishing comprehensive articles in one of the fastest growing research areas in chemistry and the related sciences.
Led by Editor Paul S. Weiss, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Chemistry and Physics at The Pennsylvania State University, ACS Nano is an international forum for the rapid dissemination of multidisciplinary research that embraces the fields of chemistry, physics, materials science, biology, and engineering. With nanoscience and nanotechnology uniquely positioned at the interface of these disciplines, the journal facilitates communication among scientists, advances the field through publication of seminal results, aids in the development of new research opportunities and reaches out to scientists at all levels.
The debut issue of ACS Nano features articles from the research groups of David Allara, Ph.D., Hongjie Dai, Ph.D., Prashant Kamat, Ph.D. and Frank Caruso, Ph.D., along with a conversation with Nobel Laureate Heinrich Rohrer, Ph.D., and a special editorial by Paul Weiss, Ph.D. The journal also includes reviews, perspectives, letters to the Editor and updates on noteworthy developments through NanoFocus.
Published monthly in print and continuously online, ACS Nano is available at no charge to institutional subscribers on the Web at
ACS Nano complements the ACS’ highly successful rapid communication journal Nano Letters, which received a 9.960 impact factor as reported in the 2006 Thomson Scientific (ISI) Journal Citation Reports®, and ranks number one in the category of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
The American Chemical Society — the world’s largest scientific society — is a nonprofit organization chartered by the U.S. Congress and a global leader in providing access to chemistry-related research through its multiple databases, peer-reviewed journals and scientific conferences. Its main offices are in Washington, D.C., and Columbus, Ohio. The ACS Publications Division currently publishes 36 leading peer-reviewed journals in the chemical and related sciences, including the Journal of the American Chemical Society, as well as Chemical & Engineering News, the Society's weekly news magazine.
