How to publish in this journal


Nanoscale Horizons is a premier journal publishing first reports of exceptional significance across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology research. It is an innovative, community-focused, dynamic journal guided by world-renowned editorial board members. Nanoscale Horizons is a collaborative venture between the Royal Society of Chemistry and a leading nanoscience research centre, the National Center for Nanoscience and Technology (NCNST) in Beijing, China. Nanoscale Horizons features cutting-edge community-spanning research that bridges the various disciplines involved with nanoscience and nanotechnology, including the areas of physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, materials, energy/environment, information technology, detection science, healthcare and drug discovery, and electronics. Topics covered in the journal include, but are not limited to the following. Synthesis of nanostructured and nanoscale materials, Characterisation of functional nanoscale materials and bio-assemblies, Properties of nanoscale materials, Self-assembly and molecular organisation, Complex hybrid nanostructures, Nanocomposites, nanoparticles, nanocrystalline materials, and nanoclusters, Nanotubes, molecular nanowires and nanocrystals, Molecular nanoscience, Nanocatalysis, Theoretical modelling, Single-molecules, Plasmonics, Nanoelectronics and molecular electronics, Nanophotonics, Nanochips, nanosensors, nanofluidics and nanofabrication, Carbon-based nanoscale materials and devices, Biomimetic materials, Nanobiotechnology/bionanomaterials, Nanomedicine, Regulatory approaches and risk assessment Join the conversation about this journal

The set of journals have been ranked according to their SJR and divided into four equal groups, four quartiles. Q1 (green) comprises the quarter of the journals with the highest values, Q2 (yellow) the second highest values, Q3 (orange) the third highest values and Q4 (red) the lowest values.

The SJR is a size-independent prestige indicator that ranks journals by their 'average prestige per article'. It is based on the idea that 'all citations are not created equal'. SJR is a measure of scientific influence of journals that accounts for both the number of citations received by a journal and the importance or prestige of the journals where such citations come from It measures the scientific influence of the average article in a journal, it expresses how central to the global scientific discussion an average article of the journal is.

Total Documents

Evolution of the number of published documents. All types of documents are considered, including citable and non citable documents.

Citations per document

This indicator counts the number of citations received by documents from a journal and divides them by the total number of documents published in that journal. The chart shows the evolution of the average number of times documents published in a journal in the past two, three and four years have been cited in the current year. The two years line is equivalent to journal impact factor ™ (Thomson Reuters) metric.

Total Cites 

Evolution of the total number of citations and journal's self-citations received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years.
Journal Self-citation is defined as the number of citation from a journal citing article to articles published by the same journal.

Cites per Doc

Evolution of the number of total citation per document and external citation per document (i.e. journal self-citations removed) received by a journal's published documents during the three previous years. External citations are calculated by subtracting the number of self-citations from the total number of citations received by the journal’s documents.

% International Collaboration

International Collaboration accounts for the articles that have been produced by researchers from several countries. The chart shows the ratio of a journal's documents signed by researchers from more than one country; that is including more than one country address.
