Call for Papers

 

This is to call for papers, which will be published in 2021 issue # 21 of the Nano Studies journal.

 

Nano Studies is an international scientific journal annually released in Georgia by the Georgian Technical University (GTU). Nano Studies’ topics include, but not limited to nanoscience and nanotechnology, as well as related problems of physics, chemistry, materials science, biology, engineering, medicine, ecology, agriculture, etc.

 

Nano Studies publish original research papers and reviews on actual scientific problems, as well as science history pages, chronicles of recent scientific forums, scientific books review, etc.

 

Nano Studies publishes articles in English, and also in Georgian and Russian.

 

Abstracts of published articles are referred by the GTU’s Scientific-Research Institute ‘Techinformi’ in Georgian Abstracts Journal – GAJ (https://techinformi.ge/qrj) and Caucasus Abstracts Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology CAJNN (https://cajnn.techinformi.ge/).

 

Nano Studies is an open-access journal. Full-texts of all the published papers can be downloaded for free from its web-site (www.nanostudies.org).

 

There are applied no article-processing- and / or page-charges to accepted for publication articles.

 

In consideration of their manuscript submitted, corresponding author on behalf of all the co-authors hereby grants Nano Studies the unlimited, worldwide, irrevocable royalty-free, right to publish, use, distribute, publish, license, transmit, display, exhibit, record, store, translate, digitize, broadcast, reproduce and archive, in any format or medium, whether now known or hereafter developed.

 

Submitted manuscripts should be prepared electronically in Microsoft Word format: page size – A4, all margins – 2 cm, font face – Sylfaen, font size – 12, spacing – No, text – justified both to left and right margins. Sample-papers prepared in the Microsoft Word format can serve for templates:

□ English Template

□ Georgian Template

□ Russian Template

 

There are no restrictions on the articles’ length: the latter is determined by the necessity to exhaust the problem under the consideration. Formation of Sections and Subsections within the text is at authors’ discretion. Article begins with title. Then should be listed authors’ initials and family names of all authors together with their affiliations and e-mail addresses (at least for the corresponding author). Text starts with an abstract about half-page in length and a few keywords.

 

References should be numbered in order of appearance in the text and enclosed in square brackets. At the end of the paper, it should be presented the numbered list of references, which should be described according to the following rules.
