Special Election Result – VP Publications 2021

The Nanotechnology Council is pleased to announce the winner of the special election for VP Publications was Supriyo Bandyopadhyay.

Supriyo Bandyopadhyay is Commonwealth Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University where he directs the Quantum Device Laboratory. His research has been featured in multiple magazines (Business Week, EE Times), journals (Nanotechnology, Nature), internet blogs, TV (CBS), radio (NPR) and many other forums. Prof. Bandyopadhyay is the author/co-author of over 400 research publications and three text books. He was named “Virginia’s Outstanding Scientist” by Governor Terrence McAuliffe in 2016 and won the State Council of Higher Education for Virginia Outstanding Faculty Award in 2018. He was given the “University Award of Excellence” in 2017; it is the highest award given by his university to one faculty member in a given year. Dr. Bandyopadhyay received numerous other awards and is this year’s winner of the IEEE Nanotechnology Pioneer Award. He is a Fellow of IEEE, American Physical Society, Institute of Physics, the Electrochemical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

His emphasis will be to dramatically increase the impact factors of all NTC journals,

  • By inviting topical reviews from leaders in the field. Associate editors will submit proposals for topical reviews and identify/persuade the most eminent contributors to contribute topical reviews.
  • Editors in Chief of ALL NTC journals will attend all NTC conferences and showcase their journals by giving a talk about them and be present for questions and answers.
  • Adopt a non-traditional approach of publishing “roadmap” or “perspective” type articles (invited and contributed) which tend to attract more citations since they appeal to a broader audience.
  • Associate editors will be asked to “filter” submissions.
  • Reduce the time between submission to final decision by expanding the reviewer pool.
  • Promote the journal in under-represented areas – eastern Europe and Eurasia, Africa, Latin America and Asia. Appoint associate editors from these areas.
  • Promote gender equity and geographical diversity among associate editors.

Please congratulate Prof. Bandyopadhyay on his election as VP Publications.
