About this Journal

The overall aim of the Journal of Nanomaterials is to bring science and applications together on nanoscale and nanostructured materials with emphasis on synthesis, processing, characterization, and applications of materials containing true nanosize dimensions or nanostructures that enable novel/enhanced properties or functions. It is directed at both academic researchers and practicing engineers. Journal of Nanomaterials will highlight the continued growth and new challenges in nanomaterials science, engineering, and nanotechnology, both for application development and for basic research. All papers should emphasize original results relating to experimental, theoretical, computational, and/or applications of nanomaterials ranging from hard (inorganic) materials, through soft (polymeric and biological) materials, to hybrid materials or nanocomposites.

Journal of Nanomaterials was founded in 2005 by Professor Michael Z. Hu who served as the Editor-in-Chief of the journal between 2005 and 2011.

The most recent Impact Factor for Journal of Nanomaterials is 1.547 according to 2012 Journal Citation Reports released by Thomson Reuters (ISI) in 2013.

Journal of Nanomaterials currently has an acceptance rate of 58%. The average time between submission and final decision is 57 days and the average time between acceptance and final publication is 39 days.
