    NanoBioImaging is closed for submissions since October, 2016.
    Optical imaging is an essential core technology in biomedical research and plays a key role in unravelling the complexity of normal and dysfunctional cell mechanisms. The advances in nanoscale optical imaging are enabling the development of novel technologies to enhance therapeutic design. The aim of this journal is to report on the latest development in the field of 2D/3D high-resolution imaging and its direct application to medical and biological research. NanoBioImaging acts as a hub where these highly interdisciplinary topics will be brought together as a unique place to learn about the major results of the latest research.
    This journal covers all aspects of high-resolution nanoscale optical imaging including beam-shaping technologies, localisation microscopy, structured illumination, multiphotons and nonlinear imaging. The journal also covers the latest research on nanoparticle development for improving imaging quality, resolution and specificity including photoluminescence, SERS, fluorescence enhancement, quantum dots and FRET reporters.

    Aims and Scope

    Why subscribe and read 

    NanoBioImaging acts as a central publishing platform for a core of multidisciplinary researchers working at the interface between life science and applied physics. The work published in this journal is a reference for technology-savvy biomedical scientists eager to learn about the latest advances in nanoscale optical imaging or in search of novel high-resolution imaging platforms. This journal also attracts physicists, with an interest in the life science interface, who want to discover new applications and the latest imaging solutions.

    Why submit 

    NanoBioImaging is unique in its focus towards nanoscale optical imaging with no other journals dedicated to publishing the most significant results in this area. The papers published in this journal are read by members of the physics community with an interest in ultra-high resolution bio-imaging and those in the biomedical science community with an interest in novel imaging platforms. The reputation and high standards of the Journal are maintained by the prominent scholars on its Advisory Board, who are actively working in all areas of Nanoscale Imaging.

    Type of Publication:

    Submission of Manuscripts

    Instructions for Authors


    Manuscripts should be submitted to the journal via Email to the Editorial Office at nanobioimaging.editorial@degruyteropen.com.

    Manuscript submitted to this journal should:

    • contain original work - not published elsewhere in any medium (in the whole or in part) by the authors or anyone else and not under consideration for publication in any other medium;
    • focus on the aims and scope of the journal;
    • be clearly and correctly written - should contain all essential features of a scientific publication that is easy to understand for the target audience;
    • written in English - attention to detail of the language will avoid severe misunderstandings which might lead to rejection of the paper;
    • be delivered in electronic format.

    The journal publishes:

    • Research Articles
    • Communications and Rapid Communications
    • Reviews and Mini-Reviews
    • Commentaries
    • Letters to the Editor and Amendments

    Formatting Requirements

    Our contributors are asked to make sure their submissions comply with rules governing the formatting. Although the journal can provide limited technical support, it is ultimately the responsibility of the author to deliver a properly formatted electronic version of the article.

    We accept submission of text, tables and figures as separate files or as a composite file. For your initial submission, we recommend you upload your entire manuscript, including tables and figures, as a single PDF file. If you are invited to submit a revised manuscript, please provide us with individual files: an editable text and publication-quality figures.

    • Text files can be submitted in the following formats: MS Word - standard DOCUMENT (.DOC) or RICH TEXT FORMAT (.RTF); PDF (not applicable for re-submitted or accepted manuscripts, see below)
    • Tables should be submitted as MS Word or PDF (not applicable for re-submitted or accepted manuscripts, see below). Please note that a straight Excel file is not an acceptable format
    • Graphics files can be submitted in any of the following graphic formats: EPS; BMP; JPG; TIFF; GIF or PDF. Please note that Powerpoint files are not accepted

    Any articles that have been prepared in LaTeX will be accepted for review, but only in PDF format. Post acceptance, text files of the revised manuscript and tables are required for use in the production. Authors are encouraged to use De Gruyter Open LaTeX template file.

    Authors should clearly indicate location of tables and figures in the text if these elements are given separately or at the end of the manuscript. If this information is not provided to the editorial office, we will assume that they should be left at the end of the text.

    It is important that authors include a cover letter with their manuscript. Please explain why you consider your manuscript as suitable for publication in NanoBioImaging, why will your paper inspire the other members of your field, and how will it drive research forward.

    The letter should contain all important details such as:

    • your full name (submitted by) 
    • full title of article and short title 
    • full list of authors with affiliations 
    • e-mail of the corresponding author 
    • contact address, telephone/fax numbers of the corresponding author
    • number of attached files, if there is more than one
    • status: new, reviewed or accepted (with reference ID if reviewed or accepted)

    Cover letter should explicitly state that the manuscript (or one with substantially the same content, by any of the authors) has not been previously published in any language anywhere and that it is not under simultaneous consideration or in press by another journal. If related work has been submitted, then we may require a preprint to be made available. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the overlap between the related submissions.

    Manuscripts that have been previously rejected, or withdrawn after being returned for modification, may be resubmitted if the major criticisms have been addressed. The cover letter must state that the manuscript is a resubmission, and the former manuscript number should be provided.

    To ensure fair and objective decision-making, authors must declare any associations that pose a conflict of interest in connection with evaluated manuscripts (see Editorial Policy for details). Authors may suggest up to two referees not to use and in such cases additional justification should be provided in the cover letter. Authors are encouraged to recommend up to five reviewers who are not members of their institution(s) and have never been associated with them or their laboratory(ies); please provide contact information for suggested reviewers. The Editors reserve the right to select expert reviewers at their discretion.  For further instructions, please carefully follow the guidelines described in Instructions for Authors.

    Open Access License

    Authors have to sign an Open Access License that is available on the webpage. We encourage the authors to send the signed license along with the manuscript. Please note, that no article will be published unless the Open Access License is signed.
