Rules for manuscripts (in pdf)

Submission of Manuscripts: Papers should be sent by e-mail

Submission of a paper to Nanosistemi, Nanomateriali, Nanotehnologii (i.e., Nanosystems, Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies) will be taken to imply that it represents original work not previously published, it is not being considered for publication elsewhere, and if accepted for publication, it will not be published in the same language without the consent of the Editors and Publisher. It is a condition of acceptance by the Editor of a typescript for publication that the Publishers acquire automatically the copyright in the typescript throughout the world.

Scope of the Collected Scientific Transactions: Nanosistemi, Nanomateriali, Nanotehnologii (i.e., Nanosystems, Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies NNN) is the quarterly multidisciplinary peer-reviewed collected scientific transactions, which publish high-quality work on all aspects of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Currently, transactions stand alone in serving the nano community in providing up-to-date information on all developments and progresses being made in nanoscience and nanotechnology and the future predictions for this extraordinary technology. The topics covered by the transactions relate to all nano related areas of the latest research and recent development works including nanomaterials, characterization tools, fabrication methods, numerical simulation, and theory as well as discussions in the field of nanoscience and technology ranging from basic aspects of the science of nanoscale systems and materials to practical applications of such systems and materials ranging from civil engineering to advanced molecular electronics so promising to transform our everyday technology as well as basic economics. The subjects covered include the following: 1. physical sciences; 2. chemical sciences; 3. life sciences; 4. theoretical and computational science and engineering.

Language: The language of publication may be English or Ukrainian.

Abstract: Each paper requires an English abstract of 300350 words summarizing the significant coverage and findings.

Keywords and PACS numbers: Up to six keywords and PACS numbers reflecting the content of the contribution should be supplied (see Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme 2010 at

Manuscript Preparation: Papers should be typed (in duplicate) with double spacing and wide margins on good quality paper (A4 size). The length of original contributions should not in general exceed 5000 words and 10 figures, and subject review articles should not exceed 9000 words and 30 figures, including tables and diagrams. Authors are urged to arrange the subject matter clearly under headings such as: 1. Introduction, 2. Experimental/Theoretical Details, 3. Results, 4. Discussion, 5. Conclusion, References. Subsections should be identified with section and subsection numbers (such as 6.1. Second-Value Subheading).

References and Notes: Notes are indicated in the text by consecutive superior Arabic numbers (without parentheses). References should be numbered consecutively (in square brackets) throughout the text. The full list should be collected and typed at the end of the paper in numerical order. Listed references should be completed in all details including DOI (if available) but excluding article titles in journals. All authors initials should precede their surnames. Examples of references preparation are presented below. DOI should be strictly referenced as (see examples 1, 2 and 8 below). Manuscripts, where rules for authors (including literature preparation) are not performed, will be returned to the authors as requiring improvement.

Journal title abbreviations should conform to generally accepted styles:;;;

Equations and Formulae: Formulas in the text should be inserted by MathType, which is fully compatible with MS Office 2003, 2007, 2010.

Tables: Number tables consecutively with arabic numerals and give a clear descriptive caption at the top.

Figures: All figures should be numbered with consecutive arabic numerals, have descriptive captions and be mentioned in the text. Keep figures separate at the end of the text and clearly label each figure with authors name and figure number. The labels at axis should contain the designation (or notation) of quantities and their units.

Preparation: Figures submitted (black-and-white or greyscale strongly recommended) must be of a high enough standard for reproduction with 300600 dpi resolution (including half-tone illustrations). Redrawing or retouching of unusable figures will be charged to the authors.

Colour Plates: Whenever the use of colour is an integral part of the research, or where the work is generated in colour, the Transactions will publish the colour illustrations with charge to the author. Reprints in colour will carry a surcharge. Please write to the Publisher for details.

Submission of Electronic Text: Authors should also submit papers by e-mail or on a CD (in addition to hard copy with figures).

The electronic form of figures (graphics files in TIFF, EPS or JPEG formats preferably and with name consisting the name of the first author also, for example, Smirnov_fig2a.tiff) should be planned so that they reduce to 12.7 cm column width (or less), and keep them separate from the text file. It is necessary to submit additionally all the figures within the format of the program, in which they were created.

Proofs: In a special emergency, contributors may receive page proofs for correction by e-mail as a PDF document. In that case, these must be returned to Kyyiv office ( with subject beginning by word nano within 120 hours of receipt.
