New Nano OA Book Launch: Big Data Analysis of Nanoscience Bibliometrics, Patent, and Funding Data (2000-2019)

Open Access for this book is funded by China National Publications Import & Export Corporation


Nanoscience has evolved and grown rapidly in impact across several disciplines and sectors over the past two decades. This book investigates the development of nanoscience research by presenting an evaluation of nanotechnologies outputs (academic outputs and patents) and their impact from 2000-2019. The evaluation uses Elsevier’s Scopus (the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature), SciVal (a scientific research analysis platform), Funding Institutional (a funding database), and PatentSight (a patent analysis platform). The book discusses four key topics regarding nanoscience research, including: 1) an overview of nano-related scholarly output, 2) nanoscience and its contribution to basic science, 3) nanoscience and its impact on and collaboration with industry partners, and lastly 4) key factors that promote the development of nanoscience.
