The goal of the annual and editorial policy
«Physical and chemical aspects of the study of clusters, nanostructures and nanomaterials» is a hybrid annual, i.e. it publishes scientific papers on both basic and applied problems of modern nanoscience. The journal “Physical and chemical aspects of the study of clusters, nanostructures and nanomaterials” is regularly published at the end of each calendar year since 2009. On the one hand, the annual is interdisciplinary. On the other hand, it publishes papers corresponding to one rapidly developing brunch of modern science, i.e. to the physicochemical aspects of nanotechnology. As conceived by the editorial board, the mission of the journal is to disseminate the new scientific results obtained during the last year, to summarize them, in a sense, and to contribute thereby to formation of prospects for the further development of this scientific direction. First of all, physical and chemical aspects of nanoscience are meant and its applications in nanotechnology. At the same time, discussions of nanotechnological aspects of environment science, biology and medicine are also welcomed. Another specific feature of our annual journal is succession to physics of surfaces and colloid chemistry. So, our journal accepts original peer-reviewed papers of high quality with presentations of new significant results on surface phenomena, nanoscience and nanotechnology. The Journal «Physical and chemical aspects of the study of clusters, nanostructures and nanomaterials» also publishes short notes of 4 pages or less (including figures, tables, and references but excluding title pages). Letters to the Editor commenting articles already published in this Journal will also be considered. Review articles providing an analysis of particular fields are also encouraged. Publishing conference papers are welcomed if provided the submitted manuscript is a significant enhancement of a conference paper with substantial additions.
