Aims and Scope
Nano Energy and Nano Environnment publishes peer-reviewed original research articles and topical reviews on all aspects of the intersection of nano science & technology and energy & environment. The journal is intended to provide state-of-the-art expositions of latest advances by theoretical, numerical and experimental studies across the spectrum of the field, from scientific enquiries to practical applications.
The journal covers nanoscale science and technology relevant to energy and environment, and nano-focused energy and environment research.
- Type of Publication:
Submission of Manuscripts
A submission to Nano Energy and Nano Environnment must be the original work and must not have been published elsewhere or be under consideration for another publication in its submitted or a substantially similar form in any language. Contributions are invited in the following three categories:
- Research papers: reports of original scientific research, techniques and applications
- Brief communications: brief and timely reports of significant advances or preliminary accounts of new work
- Topical reviews: reports of recent advances in selected areas of current interest to both researchers and practitioners
Please submit your paper to our online submission system at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/nenv.
Instructions for Authors
Submitting an article
... is done online to our ScholarOne online submission system at: http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/nenv.
Contributions submitted to this journal must be written in clear and concise English. Only unpublished material can be accepted, and authors may not republish their paper in the same or similar form. The decision on the acceptance is taken after a peer-reviewing procedure. The journal makes no page charges.
... must begin with an abstract of less than 150 words. The abstract must be followed by an appropriate classification according to PACS 2010 (Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme) and a list of 3 to 6 keywords. The short title for the running head should contain at most 80 characters, spaces inclusive. Please use only SI units in the text.
Figures must be of sufficiently high resolution (minimum 600 dpi). Authors are encouraged to submit illustrations in color if necessary for their scientific content. Publication of color figures is provided free of charge both in online and print editions.
References should be numbered consecutively in the order in which they appear in the text. In the text body, references should be identified by Arabic numerals surrounded by square brackets. All references should be collected in the reference section at the end of the paper. Please use abbreviations for titles of journals in accordance with those listed in the "World List of Scientific Periodicals" (Butterworth London).
Authors using LaTeX are asked to follow a few basic guidelines while formatting their paper for publication, in order for the journal to be as homogeneous in appearance as possible, and to be as flexible as possible with regards to all macro packages. Please download the class file and the respective sample file including the instructions for formatting here.
Authors using Word are requested to prepare their manuscript due to the following guidelines:
(1) Make use of Word templates/styles to help insure consistency in your manuscript! It doesn't matter which kind of templates you use – as long as you avoid formatting by hand. E.g., you could use the style "Heading 1" for section headings rather than choosing the font, color, paragraph spacing etc. individually.
(2) You may also define your own styles. E.g., to typewrite the variable x within the text, you may either use the Equation Editor or create an appropriate style "math italic". Both options ensure that the formatting attribute italic remains after the publisher's conversion and final typesetting.
(3) Use the Equation Editor for both inline and displayed formulas. See (2) for exceptions.
(4) Settings for the paper, margins, fonts etc. can be chosen arbitrarily.
Final formatting is however made by the Publisher. So please keep formatting macros to a minimum to make conversion of files more accurate. Do not worry about chapter headings, running titles, bad page breaks etc., and avoid adding extra space and using glue to improve the appearance of the manuscript.
... will be sent to all authors in due time with a request to carefully check them.
... each author will receive a PDF file of the final version for private use only.
