Instructions for Authors

COVER LETTER: The submission of a cover letter is mandatory, and the letter should include your abstract number.

COLORED GRAPHICAL ABSTRACT: JNN requires COLORED GRAPHIC for the Table of Contents that must be supplied with each accepted article. This 8-10 lines graphical abstract with a colored figure/illustration should be prepared in such a way that it gives the reader an overview of the contents in the article. The graphical abstract should contain the full title of the manuscript and a complete list of all authors. The size of the graphical abstract should be limited to within a space of 8.0 (length) x 2.0 (width) inches.

INTRODUCTORY MATERIAL: The first page of the manuscript should have a concise title limited to about 15 words and the names of all authors, complete mailing address for correspondence, telephone, fax numbers and email address. Please indicate with an asterisk (*) the author to whom correspondence regarding the manuscript should be directed.

ABSTRACT: All manuscripts must contain an informative 150 to 300 words abstract explaining the essential contents of the work, key ideas and results.

FIGURES: It is very important to supply high quality figures in a form suitable for reproduction. All figures, tables, illustrations, photographs should be prepared in such a way that they could be printed in a single column size with a width of 3 1/4 inches or 8.25 cm. Use 14 ARIAL BOLD font for legends and 12 ARIAL font for numbering/wordings in figures, use the same font for all figures. Only if absolutely necessary should figures/tables/photos occupy double columns. Each figure must be referred to in the text and will be printed in black and white unless otherwise instructed by the authors. Each Figure should be submitted on a separate sheet and marked with the name of the author, title of manuscript and figure number. All formulae and figures should be carefully drafted and never drawn freehand. High quality original figures and glossy prints of all photographs are required. Photocopies of the figures and photographs are not acceptable.

FREE COLOR PRINTING: Color illustrations are most welcome by the journal as they are effective in conveying complex graphs and photographs. Free color printing at the Editor-in-Chief's discretion, will provide an opportunity to publish color figures/illustrations in print at NO COST to the authors.

PHOTOGRAPHS: Half-tone illustrations should be supplied as clear, glossy, unmounted prints. The author's name, title of manuscript and figure number should be written on the back.

TABLES: Each table must be referred to in the text. Each table should be typed double-spaced on a separate sheet and identified sequentially by Arabic numerals corresponding to the order in which they appear in the text. Each table should have a brief explanatory title, which should be labeled unambiguously. The position of each table should be clearly marked in the text.

UNITS: Internationally accepted units of measurement must be used. The units of measurement are used in conjunction with their numerical values; the units should be abbreviated as suggested below. If more commonly used units are adopted, conversion factors should be given at their first occurrence. Greek symbols may be used.

%, ºC, nm, µm (not m), mm, cm, cm3, m, h (or hr), min, s (or sec), µg, mg, g (or gm), kg, cal, kcal, in. (or write out inch), ml [write out liter(s)].

The APS style guide can be used as a general reference on matter of units, grammar and formatting.

ABBREVIATIONS: No abbreviations are allowed in the title and abstract and should be defined the first time they are used within the text. The "Journal of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology" should be abbreviated as J. Nanosci. Nanotechnol. for the citation purpose.

REFERENCES: References should be in the proper format on a separate page, numbered in the sequence in which they occur in the text. Cite references numerically as superscripts in the text and list at the end of the manuscript. References should be listed in the following style:

  1. H. R. Jones and M. K. Wiles, J. Phys. Chem. 78, 8356 (1999)
  2. J. M. Cowley, Diffraction Physics, Elsevier, Amsterdam (1995)
  3. C. E. Krill, R. Harberkorn and R. Birringer, in Handbook of Nanostructured Materials and Nanotechnology edited H. S. Nalwa, Academic Press, San Diego (1999), Vol. 2, p.155.
  4. J. P. Turner and P. C. Chu, in Microelectronics, T. J. Kern, Ed., Materials Research Society, Warrendale, PA (1995), Vol. 143, p.375.

Do not use the phrases "et al." and "ibid." in the reference section. Instead, the names of all authors in a reference must be listed.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS: These should be brief and placed at the end of the text before the references.

It is sole responsibility of the authors to submit their manuscript in correct English language, free of all typographical/grammatical errors to meet high publishing standards. All authors from non-English language countries should get their manuscripts copyedited by professional copyediting services at author's own expense. All copyediting services are fully paid for and arranged by the authors. Manuscripts will be accepted for publication on a condition that authors submit a certificate of proof along with their final revised version.
