NanoImpact is a multidisciplinary journal that focuses on nanosafety research and areas related to the impacts of nanoscale processes and materials (manufactured and incidental nanomaterials, including ultrafine particles and nanoplastics) on human and environmental systems. As such it will publish in the following areas:

Human Nanotoxicology - nano-bio interactions and effects on human health;
Econanotoxicology - nano-bio interactions and effects on organism and ecosystem health;
Exposure - nanomaterial formation, release, transformation fate and behavior in the environment and human/engineered systems;
Risk Assessment and Life Cycle Assessment
Nano-informatics - modelling, data curation
Nano-governance: Policy, regulation, perception

Other areas, such as the development of methodological and modelling approaches and the development of materials and methods to enhance nanosafety, are appropriate if there is a clear and demonstrable link to the above themes.
