Aims & Scope


Advances in Nanoparticles (ANP) is a quarterly open access journal. The goal of this journal is to provide a platform for scientists and academicians all over the world to promote, share, and discuss various new issues and developments in all aspects of nanoparticle science and technology and their applications.

All manuscripts must be prepared in English and are subject to a rigorous peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. The areas covered by Advances in Nanoparticles (ANP) include but are not limited to the following fields:
