Two-Dimensional Materials: Science and Technology

Call for Papers

Two-dimensional (2D) materials are atomically thin substances, whose family has grown appreciably since the first discovery of graphene. They exhibit exceptional properties, governed by quantum confinement in the out-of-plane direction, naturally passivated surfaces, and/or huge suface-to-volume ratio, etc. Past years have seen worldwide interest in 2D mateials and also great efforts devoted to integrating them into fundamental sciences and engineering technologies.

Suggested topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Chemistry and biology studies of 2D materials
  • Growth, synthesis techniques and integration methods
  • Nanocomposites for energy applications 
  • Devices for electronic applications (flexible electronics, high frequency devices, sensors, etc.)
  • Photonics and plasmonics
  • Health and medical applications
  • Quantum transport , magnetism and spintronics
  • Spectroscopy and microscopy 
  • Fundamental science, theory and simulation

Submission instructions
Before submitting your manuscript, please ensure you have carefully read the submission guidelines for Nanoscale Research Letters. The complete manuscript should be submitted through the Nanoscale Research Letters submission system. To ensure that you submit to the correct thematic series please select the appropriate thematic series in the drop-down menu upon submission. In addition, indicate within your cover letter that you wish your manuscript to be considered as part of the thematic series 'Two-Dimensional Materials: Science and Technology'. All submissions will undergo rigorous peer review and accepted articles will be published within the journal as a collection.

Submissions will also benefit from the usual advantages of open access publication: 

  • Rapid publication, online submission, electronic peer review and production make the process of publishing your article simple and efficient. 
  • High visibility and international readership in your field: Open access publication ensures high visibility and maximum exposure for your work - anyone with online access can read your article. 
  • No space constraints: Publishing online means unlimited space for figures, extensive data and video footage.
  • Authors retain copyright, licensing the article under a Creative Commons license: articles can be freely redistributed and reused as long as the article is correctly attributed.
