Aims & Scope
Nature Nanotechnology publishes papers in all areas of nanoscience and nanotechnology that are of utmost quality and significance, covering research into the design, characterization and production of structures, devices and systems that consists the manipulation and control of materials and phenomena at atomic, molecular and macromolecular scales. Bottom-up, top-down, and combinations of these two approaches are covered.
The journal encourages communication of ideas among chemists, physicists, material scientists, biomedical researchers, engineers and other active researchers. It covers basic research in physics, chemistry and biology, including computational work and simulations, the development of new devices and technologies for applications in a wide range of industrial sectors (including information technology, medicine, manufacturing, high-performance materials, and energy and environmental technologies). Materials ranging organic, inorganic, and hybrid are all covered.

EDITORIAL POLICIES & CRITICAL FACTORS FOR PUBLICATION
- Manuscripts must be submitted online at http://mts-nnano.nature.com/cgi-bin/main.plex.
- The author may opt for double-blind review: http://www.nature.com/nnano/journal/v9/n11/full/nnano.2014.273.html.
- Manuscripts that are conceptually similar are typically sent to the same referees. However, each of the co-submitted manuscripts must meet the criteria for publication without reference to the other paper. If one paper is substantially less complete or convincing than the other, it may be rejected, even if the papers reach the same conclusion.
