Nanoscale Horizons is the newest member of the flagship Horizons journals published by the Royal Society of Chemistry

Nanoscale Horizons is a premier journal publishing first reports of exceptional significance across the breadth of nanoscience and nanotechnology research. Nanoscience is the study of materials and structures on the scale of nanometres; one nanometre is one millionth of a millimetre, to help explain this, the width of a human hair is approximately 50,000 nanometres. Scientists are interested in nanoparticles as their properties can vary a substantial amount when compared to the equivalent bulk material. For example, the nanoparticles in a chunk of gold are actually red in colour.

Nanoscale Horizons is an innovative, community-focused, dynamic journal guided by world-renowned editorial board members. The journal features cutting-edge community-spanning research that bridges the sciences. For publication in Nanoscale Horizons, papers must be of exceptional significance, quality and interest to the broad international nanoscience and nanotechnology community.

Nanoscale Horizons is published once every 2 months, with only 6 issues a year. It does not currently have an impact factor as the first issue was published in January 2016, it shall receive its first partial impact factor in the summer of 2017.
