“Nano Today’s new impact factor was made possible by the excellent contributions and support from our readers, authors, referees, editorial advisory board, as well as our Managing Editor, Noreena AbuBakar. We are privileged to be working in the exciting, rapidly evolving field of nanotechnology, which has immense potential to benefit society through its wide-ranging impact on diverse areas of our lives. Our journal is committed to publishing the latest and most interesting developments in this multidisciplinary field,” 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.
“Nano Today continues to go from strength to strength because of its unwavering commitment to commissioning the best quality papers from the most interesting people working in the field today. I feel immensely proud of the efforts of Jackie and the entire editorial team in producing such an excellent publication, and wish to thank all of our inspiring authors and dedicated reviewers who have again helped deliver this exceptional impact,” said Deborah Logan, Publishing Director, Materials Science Journals, Elsevier.
Nano Today is an international, peer-reviewed journal for researchers with interests across the whole spectrum of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Through review articles, rapid communications, news and opinions, it features the latest breakthroughs in nanoscience, and the impacts of nanotechnology on biomedical, electronic, chemical and energy applications.
Since successfully transitioning from a magazine to a journal format in 2009 under the leadership of Professor Ying, Nano Today has recorded major increases in Impact Factor from 5.929 in 2007 to 17.689 in 2012. The high impact factor rating achieved by Nano Today in such a short span of time is an indicator of the quality and influence the journal has garnered within the international research community.
The journal’s latest impact factor of 17.689 also places it as #4 out of 239 journals in Materials Science (Multidisciplinary), and #5 out of 152 journals in Chemistry (Multidisciplinary), consolidating its position as a leading journal that serves a broad readership. Nano Today is also the only Asia-based journal among the top 5 journals in each list.
