Special Section on the 19th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology

The IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Section following the 2019 edition of the 19th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO 2019)

Nanoscience and nanotechnology have rapidly established themselves as enabling disciplines within many disciplines including materials science, engineering, physics, chemistry, and biology. Following the success of the 19th IEEE International Conference on Nanotechnology (IEEE-NANO2019), IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) is extending a Call For Papers for a Special Section /Issue reflecting the scope of the conference. Submitted manuscripts will undergo a full peer review process. Submissions are welcome but limited to NANO presentations. Authors who were attendees are requested to significantly expand the previous conference version to contain substantial new technical material, as per TNANO and IEEE restrictions on duplicated publications and the competitive acceptance process. Manuscripts for the TNANO Special Issue/Section must be submitted on-line using the IEEE TNANO manuscript template and “Information for Authors”, via the IEEE Manuscript Central found at https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tnano. On submission to TNANO, authors should select the “Special Issue” manuscript type instead of “Regular Paper.” Therefore no paper in Letter format will be accepted. Please indicate in the cover letter the submission to the “2019 NANO Special Issue” as well as the title of your presentation at NANO2019 in Macau.

Submissions that reflect the Conference Scope and current state of the field are welcome in areas including::

  • Micro-to- nano-scale bridging
  • Nanobiology and Nanomedicine
  • Nanoelectronics
  • Nanomanufacturing and Nanofabrication
  • Nano Robotics and Automation

Researchers, Scientists, Engineers, and Practitioner throughout the world are contributing their latest research findings, ideas, developments, and applications in the areas of nanotechnology including electron devices and materials.

To make research presented at the INTERNATIONAL ELECTRON DEVICES & MATERIALS SYMPOSIUM (IEDMS 2019) widely available in expanded form and in a single venue, IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) is extending a Call For Papers for a Special Issue reflecting the scope of the conference.

Submitted manuscripts will undergo a full peer review process. Submissions are welcome, and all interested IEDMS 2019 participants are encouraged to submit. Authors who are attendees are requested to significantly expand the previous conference version to contain substantial new technical material, as per TNANO and IEEE restrictions on duplicated publications and the competitive acceptance process.

Manuscripts for the TNANO Special Issue/Section must be submitted on-line using the IEEE TNANO manuscript template and “Information for Authors”, via IEEE Manuscript Central https://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/tnano. On submission to TNANO, authors should select the “Special Issue” manuscript type instead of “Regular Paper.”

Submissions that reflect the Conference Scope and current state of the field are welcome in areas including but not limited to:

  • Nanotechnology in Compound Semiconductor Materials and Devices
    Material growth, high-speed devices, lasers, light-emitting diodes, photodetectors and organic electronics, power devices, associated characterization, modeling, simulation and reliability

Message from the Editor-In-Chief

Also this year as the flagship publication of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC), I am pleased to report that the IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) has achieved new heights across all endeavors of operation.

2017 is the third consecutive year with record numbers in terms of number of submissions; moreover, selectivity has remained nearly constant, so confirming that TNANO has reached an excellent level of overall scholarship. In quantitative terms, Manuscript Central Scholar One reports the following very impressive statistics for the 2017 calendar year (the data for 2016 is reported between parentheses):

  • Number of regular manuscript submissions: 797 (758)
  • Number of “Letter” submissions: 124 (0)
  • Total number of submissions: 921 (758)
  • Acceptance rate: 31% (28%)
  • Rejection rate: 50% (54%)
  • Revise-and-resubmit rate: 19% (18%)

Announcement: ENANO becomes “Letters” in TNANO

 
The IEEE Nanotechnology Council (NTC) is excited to announce the launch of the category “Letters” in IEEE Transactions on Nanotechnology (TNANO) by merging IEEE Nanotechnology Express (ENANO) with TNANO. Led by the newly appointed Associate Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Gwo-Bin Lee, under the leadership of the Editor-in-Chief, Prof. Fabrizio Lombardi, 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” in TNANO 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.

 
TNANO is now accepting submissions for the “Letters”. The TNANO manuscript submission process is fully electronic to ensure the rapid publication of results. Manuscripts should be submitted via ScholarOne Manuscripts at . The submission to publication time is expected to be approximately six weeks. Accepted papers are published on the web in IEEE Xplore as soon as they are submitted in final form. Web-published papers have a DOI (Digital Object Identifier), and are fully citable and downloadable.

 
Submit your manuscript to the “Letters” in TNANO!


Information about TNANO

TNANO focuses on nanoscale devices, systems, materials and applications, and on their underlying science. It is an interdisciplinary journal that covers all areas of nanotechnology. The hardcopy version is published bi-monthly, but accepted papers are published on the web as soon as they are submitted in final form. TNANO is a publication of the IEEE Nanotechnology Council.

TNANO is a Hybrid Journal, which means that it allows either:

  • Traditional manuscript submission
  • Open Access (author-pays OA) manuscript submission at a discounted rate


 TNANO publishes Research Letters, Regular Papers, and Correspondence Items. Research Letters must not exceed four printed pages. They are subject to the same thorough review process as Regular Papers, but receive priority treatment. A Research Letter that is accepted without major revisions is expected to be published on the web within 4 to 6 weeks of its initial submission.


Areas covered by TNANO include, but are not limited to:

  • Nano and Molecular Electronics
  • Circuits and Architectures
  • Nanomagnetism and Spintronics
  • Nano-Optics, Nano-Optoelectronics and Nanophotonics
  • Nanorobotics and Nanoassembly
  • Nanosensors and Nanoactuators
  • Nanomechanics and Nanoelectromechanical Systems
  • Nanobiotechnology and Nanomedicine
  • Nanofabrication and Nanolithography
  • Nanometrology and Characterization
  • Computational Nanotechnology
