OJ-NANO Special Issue on “IEEE-NANOMED 2021: Nano/Molecular Medicine & Engineering”

Saturday, November 20th, 2021

CALL FOR PAPERS:
SPECIAL ISSUE/SECTION

IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO)
Special Issue on
“IEEE-NANOMED 2021: Nano/Molecular Medicine & Engineering”

IEEE Open Journal of Nanotechnology (OJ-NANO), a new gold fully open access journal launched in 2020 by IEEE Nanotechnology Council, publishes research advancing the theory, design and development of nanotechnology and its scientific, engineering and industrial applications. The journal has an independent editorial board, established peer-review process, is targeting a ten-week rapid publishing schedule and is fully compliant with funder mandates, including Plan S. Your work will be exposed to 5 million unique monthly users of the IEEE Xplore®Digital Library. IEEE OJ-NANO is now indexed in the Emerging Sources Citation Index (ESCI) by Clarivate Analytics, as well as accepted for inclusion in Scopus®, meaning that articles are discoverable in Web of Science and Elsevier’s abstract & citation database! This development indicates increased visibility and profile for both the journal and its published articles, demonstrating IEEE OJ-NANO is a reliable and high-quality source of information in the field of nanotechnology. Furthermore, ESCITM indexing is a necessary precursor to a journal being accepted in Science Citation Index Expanded (SCIE)TM with an Impact Factor. IEEE OJ-NANO is now under consideration for SCIE.

IEEE OJ-NANO will devote a special issue/section on “IEEE-NANOMED 2021: Nano/Molecular Medicine and Engineering” to a collection of papers highlighting research and technology development in the field of nanobiotechnology, molecular engineering, micro/nano-fluidics, micro/nano-system integration, nano-biology and nanomedicine. IEEE Nanotechnology Council sponsors the 15th IEEE International Conference on Nano/Molecular Medicine & Engineering (IEEE-NANOMED 2021) held on 15-18 November 2021 to foster interaction between physicians, scientists and engineers in these emerging areas.

NOTE: IEEE OJ-NANO will waive 25% of the APC (Article Publishing Charge) for papers accepted for publication in the NANOMED 2021 special issue!

The International EIPBN Conference is the premier gathering of scientists and engineers who are dedicated to electron, ion and photon lithography, imaging, and analysis; atomically precise fabrication; nanofabrication process technologies; related emerging technologies, and their applications in a broad spectrum of fields.

This is the 65th meeting of the EIPBN, where top researchers from academia, government laboratories, and industry from around the world meet to present and discuss recent trends and future directions in these technologies.

The conference opens on Tuesday with a short course session in the morning followed by the beginning of a 3-day commercial session featuring materials and equipment vendors. Wednesday opens with the plenary session and a spotlight poster session showcasing the invited and contributed papers. The remainder of the conference will consist of three parallel oral sessions. Presentations (including questions) will be 30 minutes for invited papers and 20 minutes for contributed papers.

An important feature of the program is the poster session, which provides opportunity for extended discussions with the authors. Best Invited, Contributed, and Student Poster awards are presented during the banquet on Thursday evening. We are also looking forward to honoring a newly formed company that best communicates its business model, market, and vision with the Best Startup Award.
