Nano Letters is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Chemical Society. It was established in January 2001. The two editors-in-chief are A. Paul Alivisatos (University of California, Berkeley) and Charles M. Lieber (Harvard University).[1]


The focus of the journal is rapid dissemination of selected elements regarding fundamental, original research reports on all topics related to the theory and practice of nanoscience and nanotechnology and their subdisciplines. Physical, chemical, and biological phenomena related to nanoscience and nanotechnology are part of this focus. Furthermore nanoscale materials science is also included, focusing on processes and applications of structures at this size.[1] Subject coverage encompasses the following: Materials that are synthesized and processed by physical, chemical, and biological methods. The classes of these materials are organic, inorganic, and hybrid. Furthermore, these processes are subjects of modeling and simulation. Specifically these process range from synthesis to assembly, along with relevant interactions.[1]

Also of interest for this journal is the characterization of materials properties at the scales being studied during the research endeavor. Results also produce realization and application of novel nanostructures and nanodevices.[1]

Abstracting and indexing[edit]

Nano Letters is currently indexed in Chemical Abstracts Service, CASSI, Scopus, EBSCOhost, British Library, PubMed, and Web of Science.[1]
