NTC has several publications and an e-newsletter


EiC: Fabrizio Lombardi

The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology publishes novel and important results in engineering at the nanoscale. The scope of TNANO includes the physical basis and engineering applications of phenomena at the nanoscale level across all areas of science and engineering. TNANO publishes Regular Papers, and Correspondence Items. It focuses on nanoscale devices, systems, materials and applications, and on their underlying science. TNANO no longer publishes letters as a special paper category; authors who submit papers of a shorter page length that would fit in the earlier research letter category are encouraged to submit to the IEEE Nanotechnology Express (ENANO).

The hardcopy version is published bi-monthly, but accepted papers are published on the web as soon as they are submitted in final form. Web-published papers have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and are fully citable and downloadable. Nanotechnology is evolving rapidly and swift publication is necessary to ensure that authors submit their best work to the Transactions. Fast publication is achieved through TNANO’s entirely electronic submission and review process.

  • “Letters” in TNANO

Associate Editor-in-Chief: Prof. Gwo-Bin Lee

The “Letters” in TNANO serves as forum for rapid publication of high-quality articles – featuring the topics of great current interest in all areas of nanotechnology, including nanoscale materials, devices, systems, and applications, and their underlying science, which cover the interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary areas across engineering, material science, physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, and related disciplines.

The “Letters” category publishes a collection of peer-reviewed short reports of original research and perspectives and mini-reviews on emerging topics. Papers submitted to the “Letters” are limited to a maximum of 4 journal pages in the two-column IEEE format, which includes figures, tables, and references. The “Letters” in TNANO maintains the same competitive and constructive peer-review criteria of TNANO with no article publishing charges.


EIC: John T. Yeow

The IEEE Nanotechnology Magazine publishes peer-reviewed articles that present emerging trends and practices in industrial electronics product research and development, key insights, and tutorial surveys in the field of interest to the member societies of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council. INM will be limited to the scope of the Nanotechnology Council, which supports the theory, design, and development of nanotechnology and its scientific, engineering, and industrial applications.

The IEEE Nanotechnology e-Newsletter provides information on NTC publications, conferences, events, and developments in nanotechnology and applications.


EiC: Henry Hess

This transaction reports on original, innovative and interdisciplinary work on all aspects of molecular systems, cellular systems, and tissues – including molecular electronics. The journal will accept basic and applied papers dealing both with Engineering, Physics, Chemistry and Computer  Science and with Biology and Medicine with respect to bio-molecules and cells. Co-published with the Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society.

T-MBMSC is devoted to the principles, design, and analysis of communication systems that use physics beyond classical electromagnetism. This includes molecular, quantum, and other physical, chemical and biological techniques; as well as new communication techniques at small scales or across multiple scales (e.g., nano to micro to macro). Original research articles on one or more of the following topics are within scope: mathematical modeling, information/communication and network theoretic analysis, standardization and industrial applications, and analytical or experimental studies on communication processes or networks in biology. Contributions on related topics may also be considered for publication. Contributions from researchers outside the IEEE’s typical audience are encouraged. Co-published with the Communications Society.

IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems (TMSCS) is a selective peer-reviewed publication devoted to computing systems that exploit multi-scale and multi-functionality. These systems consist of computational modules that utilize diverse implementation scales (from micro down to the nano scale) and heterogeneous hardware and software functionalities; moreover, these modules can be based on operating principles and models that are valid within but not necessarily across their respective scales and computational domains. Contributions to TMSCS must address computation of information and data at higher system-levels for processing by digital and emerging domains. These computing systems can also rely on diverse frameworks based on paradigms at molecular, quantum and other physical, chemical and biological levels. Innovative techniques such as inexact computing, management/optimization of smart infrastructures and neuromorphic modules are also considered within scope. Co-published with the Computer Society.

IEEE Journal on Exploratory Solid State Computational Devices and Circuits is an open-access online journal focused on multi-disciplinary research in solid-state circuits using exploratory materials and devices for novel energy efficient computation beyond standard CMOS (complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductor) technology. Specifically, the exploration of materials, devices and circuits for computation to enable Moores Law to continue for computation beyond a 10 to 15 year horizon (beyond end of the roadmap for CMOS technologies) with the associated density scaling and improvement in energy efficiency.  Co-published with the Solid State Circuits Society. Examples of appropriate topics are research milestones in the integration of exploratory materials, devices and computation circuits based upon any of the following:

  • Quantum electronics (e.g. tunneling),
  • Spintronics and nanomagnetics,
  • Straintronics (piezo-electric devices),
  • Plasmonics,
  • Functional materials,
  • High fan-in, fan-out logic circuits,
  • Reconfigurable and non-volatile computational circuits,
  • Computational circuits comprehending the on-chip communication means.

Inquiries for the xCDC Journal should be sent to: JXCDC@IEEE.ORG
