Nano Today is an international journal for research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. It provides comprehensive coverage of this exciting and dynamic field through a unique mixture of authoritative review articles, rapid communications, as well as the latest research news and opinions. The journal has consistently ranked among the world’s top journals since transitioning into a journal from a magazine format in 2009 under Prof. Ying’s leadership.

This year, Nano Today will be organizing the 5th Nano Today Conference with the Institute of Bioengineering and Nanotechnology and Elsevier. The conference will be held in Kona, Hawaii on December 6-10, 2017 ( Started in 2009, the Nano Todayconference series has become a leading forum for the most recent advances in nanoscience and nanotechnology. Organized biennially, the last conference was held in Dubai in December 2015 with 500 delegates.

The Journal Citation Reports®, published annually by Thomson Reuters, measures the research influence and impact at the journal and category levels in sciences and social sciences. The journal’s impact factor is the ratio of last year’s citations to articles published in that journal in the two previous years. The 2017 report, which is based on 2016 citation data, features 11,459 journal listings in 236 disciplines within 81 countries.
