Nanoscale Systems: Mathematical Modeling, Theory and Applications

1 Issue per year


Emerging Science

Open Access

Systems at the nanoscale are ubiquitous in a wide range of technological innovations, as well as in nature.  Examples include low dimensional semiconductor nanostructures such as quantum wires and quantum dots, carbon nanostructures such as graphene and nanotubes, and a diverse variety of biological nanostructures such as those obtained from biomolecules, to name just a few.  Firstly, our study of such systems is of both fundamental and applied importance. Secondly, such systems are central for our better understanding and ultimate rational design of larger systems in which nanoscale systems are integrated.  This journal exists to cover research in both of these directions.

Aims and Scope

Why subscribe and read

NanoSystems MMTA is an international, interdisciplinary, peer-reviewed journal devoted to the publication of research results in the study, development, and application of systems at the nanoscale where, along with experimental techniques, the role of mathematical, statistical, and computational tools is becoming increasingly important. This emerging multidisciplinary field includes applications and advancements of these tools in all of the disciplines facing the challenges associated with the nanoscale systems. This includes, but not limited to, physics, chemistry, biology, materials science, medicine, and engineering.

The journal aims to provide its diverse readership with coverage of important advances in all aspects of nanoscale systems that are being achieved with mathematical, statistical and computational tools. It also aims at coverage of important advances in the development of mathematical theory as well as applications pertinent to such systems.

Why submit 

The journal is peer-reviewed, publishes in electronic-only format, on ongoing basis, warranting immediate publication of accepted papers. The Open Access model allows ready access to its target audience and the peer-review system together with the outstanding scientists of the editorial board, ensures that quality is maintained throughout.  The language of the journal is English.

Instructions for Authors

manuscripts should be submitted to the NanoMMTA Editor-in-Chief at nsmmt.editorial@degruyteropen.com

Peer-Review Process
The journal uses a closed single-blind peer review system (the names of the reviewers are hidden from the authors). Submitted manuscripts are reviewed by two or more experts. Reviewers are asked to recommend whether a manuscript should be accepted, revised or rejected. Although the journal uses the plagiarism detection system CrossCheck, reviewers should alert the editors if they suspect any issues relating to author misconduct such as plagiarism.

Reviewers are asked to provide detailed, constructive comments that will help both the editors make a decision on the publication and the author(s) to improve their manuscript. They should point out whether the work has serious flaws that preclude its publication, or whether additional experiments should be carried out or additional data should be collected to support the conclusions drawn.
