Frontiers in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology aims to promote high level multi-disciplinary research in nanoscience and nanotechnology. As such, the journal should provide a forum for the dissemination and exchange of leading edge research in the field, covering research in the fundamental and applied sciences, engineering and medicine.

The journal covers fabrication and processing of nanostructures from organic and inorganic systems including direct methods and self assembly, surface science, characterisation and modeling of such materials and their properties, including spectroscopies and scanning probe techniques, the development of new nano-imaging techniques, the development of new devices and new types of behaviour of such devices and structures, with relevance to sensing, nanophotonics, optoelectronics, nanoelectronics, nanospintronics, nanomagnetism, nano electromechanical systems, quantum information, nanomechanics, nanobiotechnology, nanomedicine, nanotoxicology, and nanomaterials for energy related applications.

Submissions to FNN can take the form of original research, review, book review, clinical trial, data report, evidence-based medical research reports, observational studies, editorial, hypothesis & theory, methods, mini-review, opinion, perspective studies, commentaries, advances in technology. Submissions are handled by the Editor-in-Chief and a team of Editorial Board members.

The articles can be accessed online immediately on their publication. We are committed to providing authors with a rapid, fair, and constructive external peer-review process, with the goal of providing the majority of first decisions within 4 weeks.

Frontiers in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (FNN) is now open for submissions. You can submit your manuscript to:  submissions@oatext.com alternatively to: editor.fnn@oatext.com

Please, follow the Instructions for Authors. In the cover letter add the name and e-mail address of 5 proposed reviewers (we can choose them or not).

Alberto Pimpinelli


Alberto Pimpinelli is the Executive Director of the Smalley-Curl Institute of Rice University, Houston, since January 2015, as well as Research Professor in Rice’s Materials Science and Nanoengineering Department, Full Professor of Physics at the Université Blaise Pascal in ClermontFerrand (France) and Visiting Professor at the University of Maryland in College Park. 

From 2008 to 2012 he was one of the Attaches for Science and Technology of the French Embassy in the US.

Trained as a theoretical physicist, Alberto Pimpinelli obtained his PhD from the University of Parma (Italy) with a thesis dealing with statistical mechanics models of magnetism in insulating systems. His interests shifted to crystal surfaces and crystal growth when, thanks to fellowships of the Italian Accademia dei Lincei and of the European Union, he left Italy for the Centre d'Etudes Nucléaires and then the Laue Langevin Institute in Grenoble (1991-97). In 1997, Alberto Pimpinelli was appointed Professor at the Universite Blaise Pascal in Clermont-Ferrand, where he taught statistical and solid state physics, as well as introductory courses to nanosciences. In 2004 he was invited to the MRSEC at the University of Maryland, where he was appointed Visiting Professor the following year. In 2008 he started his 4-years spell in scientific diplomacy at the French Consulate in Houston, and was hired by Rice University in 2012.  He has been an expert reviewer for many institutions and scientific agencies (MNEST, ANR, NSF, NASA, EU, EC, Romanian Government)

He has authored or co-authored more than 100 scientific papers and book chapters, and has been invited to talk in many international conferences. With Jacques Villain, he has written Physics of Crystal Growth (Cambridge University Press, 1998).

He continues to be interested in the theory of crystal growth and thin-films nucleation, a domain in which he has given important contributions in relation to the morphological stability of crystal surfaces out-of-equilibrium, in particular in multicomponent systems, as well as to the theory of island nucleation and capture-zone distributions in epitaxial deposition. At present, Alberto Pimpinelli is working on diverse topics as understanding the formation of films of organic molecules, the morphological evolution of plasmonic nanoparticles as a function of temperature and environment, the molecular transport in nanochannels inside drug-delivery devices, the modeling of collective behavior in complex systems, as well as selected topics in Medieval literature.

Frontiers in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (FNN) is now open for submissions. You can submit your manuscript to:  submissions@oatext.com alternatively to: editor.fnn@oatext.com

Publication Charges


Frontiers in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology is an Open Access journal and we do not charge the end user when accessing a manuscript or any article. This allows the scientific community to view, download, distribution of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited, under the term of "Creative Commons Attribution License". In line with other open access journals we provide a flat fee submission structure on the acceptance of a peer-reviewed article which covers in part the entirety of the publication pathway (the article processing charge). The process includes our maintenance, submission and peer review systems and international editing, publication and submission to global indexing and tracking organisations and archiving to allow instant access to the whole article and associated supplementary documents. We also have to ensure enough investment to secure a sustainable model which ethically, legally and financially stable.

The publication charges for Frontiers in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology are USD 1190/ GBP 960.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Why are your charges set at these levels?

All articles published in OA Text are open access. Open Access publishing implies that all readers, anywhere in the world, are allowed unrestricted to full text of articles, immediately on publication in OA Text Journals. The Article Publication Charges pay for the editorial and production costs of the journal, for hosting the website, publishing articles online, preparing HTML , PDF and XML versions of the articles and submitting the articles in electronic citation database like CrossRef.

Our financial goals are to:

  • Recover capitalization costs;
  • Produce sufficient revenue to allow for a sustainable and scalable publishing program, under continuous development;
  • Bend the publication-charge cost downward over time.

Who will pay the APC?

Corresponding author or Co-authors has to make the payment on acceptance of the article.

What type of articles are published for free?

*We request an immediate attention towards the payment as the articles will not be published unless the charges have been paid.

How do I pay?

Authors or institutions can make payments by two modes as per their convenience.

  1. Wire/Bank transfer
  2. Card payment

Note: No taxes are included in this charge, taxes will be applicable as per the policies of the country of the payee. Additional transaction charges may be levied on the author.

Can I be eligible for wavier on APC?

The waiver request will be considered on a case-by-case basis, and will be provided accordingly.

*The Waiver requests must be made during the submission process and will not be accepted after  processing of the manuscript.

Do I have to pay if my manuscript is rejected?

No, Article processing charges will not be applicable for articles rejected by the Editorial office.

Withdrawal Charges

Are reprints of my article included in the article processing charges (APCs)?

No, Article processing charges (APCs) do not include the charges for the reprints. Reprints facility is optional and should be order separately.
