Guidelines (rules) for authors (in pdf)

Nanosistemi, Nanomateriali, Nanotehnologii (transliterated title according to the ISSN/E-ISSN: 1816-5230/2617-3794) or Nanosystems, Nanomaterials, Nanotechnologies (English title), a quarterly multidisciplinary (miscellaneous) peer-reviewed collected scientific transactions (journal), publishes the high-quality research (both regular and review) works 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.

Submission of a manuscript implies that the paper represents an 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previously published, it is not being considered for publication elsewhere, and if accepted for publication, it will not be published in the same language without the consent of the Editors and Publisher. As a manuscript is accepted for the publication, the Publisher automatically acquires exclusive rights for the copyrighted work. Manuscripts, which do not comply with the below-mentioned rules for authors, will be rejected without consideration per se.

  1. Submission and Manuscript Preparation. Authors should submit the article materials (manuscript + figures + copyright transfer agreement) by e-mail. The language of publication may be English or Ukrainian. The manuscript file should be saved in the native format of the Microsoft Word with a name consisting the name of the first author, e.g., Kozachenko.docx. The research paper's length should not in general exceed 5000 words and 10 figures. The review research article should not exceeds 22000 words and 60 figures including tables and diagrams. The paper should be arranged as headings (sections), e.g., 1. Introduction, 2. Experimental (Theoretical) Methods, 3. Obtained Results, 4. Discussion, 5. Conclusion, References. Subsections should be identified with section and subsection numbers (such as 3.1., 3.1.1., etc.). The first letter in each word (excepting conjunctions and prepositions) in the titles of structural units (sections, subsections, title of the article) as well as in the titles of periodicals in the references (see examples of the references below) should be written in Capital, e.g.: 1. Introduction: Background of the Problem and Motivation of the Study. Complicated formulae, mathematical expressions or (de)notations are not recommended in the title, abstract, and keywords.
  2. Abstract, Keywords, and PACS numbers. Each paper requires an English abstract of 200250 words summarizing the significant coverage and findings. Up to six keywords and PACS numbers reflecting the content of the contribution should be supplied (see Physics and Astronomy Classification Scheme 2010).
  3. Equations and formulae should be typed rather in MathType (with Text Style as in the main text) than in the Word Equation Editor (undesirable). Vectors (in the text, equations, tables and figures) are typed in normal (non-italized) bold (without vector heads arrows over), for example, a, b, c, A, B, C; and variables (except greek-symbol) in italics, for instance, a, b, c, A, B, C. Use a period (full stop), but not a comma, to indicate the decimal place everywhere in the text, equations, tables and figures (decimal fractions in English are separated from an integer by a period (.), not a comma (,) as in some other languages). Font and its size in the equation should be the same as in the text. Greek symbols should be typed (inserted) as a Symbol font (regular, but not in italics).
  4. Figures (with 300 dpi resolution and 12.7 cm maximal width in the journal format) and Tables should be embedded after the text and references, numbered with consecutive arabic numbers, and have descriptive captions at the bottom of the figure or top of the table. In the text of the paper, figures are mentioned as following: (in) Fig. 1 (not at the beginning of the sentence) or (in) Figure 1 (at the beginning of the sentence); Fig. 2, a; Fig. 3, a, b or Fig. 3, a and b. Examples for mentioning tables in the text: Table 1; Table 2, a; Table 3, a, b or Table 3, a and b. In the captions to the figures or tables Fig. 1. ... or Table 1. .... In addition to those embedded after the text, all figures should be also submitted separately as attached files in eps, tif, jpg, png or other formats. The figures plotted in opj or cdr formats may be submitted as opj or cdr files as well. The captions to the axes on the graphs must contain the designations (or names) of the plotted values followed by the comma-separated (not in brackets) units of measurement. Designations of the figures a, b, c, d ... (in the figures and within the text) should be set in italics type (without brackets).
  5. Any information (in the text, figures, tables, and formulae or equations) adapted from other (including own) articles should obligatory contain corresponding references (in captions to figures or tables or before the formulae or equations in the text) in order to avoid infringement of the copyright and editorial ethics or (self)plagiarism. Permission statements are required for all figures recopied or reproduced from previously published source materials (articles, monographs, books, etc.). Permissions from publishers (authors) can be obtained electronically by emailing them with the appropriate request. Permission should be stated in the (end of) caption to the figure (Reproduced with permission from [Ref.]. Copyright Year, Publisher). Submitted papers are routinely scanned for plagiarism including self-plagiarism (using the free online plagiarism checker tools:,
  6. References should be numbered sequentially in square brackets in the text and without the brackets after the text in the section References (see examples below and in the step 3). The full list should be collected and typed at the end of the paper in numerical order. Each reference should contain all authors list (without shortening via et al.). Authors initials should precede their names. Diacritics sometimes used in the authors (sur)names should be typed in Times New Roman. Each reference should be followed by the Digital Object Identifier (DOI), if such an identifier (a link) is available on the official publishers website. DOI is given after a semicolon as the link (see examples 1, 2, 6, 10 below) without a full stop (.) at the end. References should be strictly formatted according to the following examples:
