ACS Nano Journal – NEW in 2007!

Well, I caught this one relatively quickly. There is another new ACS journal that just began publication this week. Called ACS Nano, this new journal of the American Chemical Society will cover cutting-edge research on “synthesis, assembly, characterization, theory, and simulation of nanostructures (nanomaterials and assemblies, nanodevices, and self-assembled structures), nanobiotechnology, nanofabrication, methods and tools for nanoscience and nanotechnology, and self- and directed-assembly.”

The inaugural issue was published online on August 14. This journal will be available during 2007 for free – thereafter, WMU faculty and students will have access to this journal via our ACS Web Editions link via the Waldo Library homepage. (Don’t forget that ever important BroncoNet ID and password, though.) The table of contents includes:
