Scope, Aims & Topics

NanoWorld Journal (NWJ) is a quarterly, peer-reviewed, open access journal that publishes original research articles, reviews, letters to editor, and technical notes on the solutions through Nanotechnology and Nanosciences to the problems facing the world in the key sectors of energy, environment, space, hardware and cancer in order to achieve significant progress with the involvement of overall society in a dedicated sixth section of the Journal. The scope of the NWJ is centered in the key sectors from which depends on human progress and survival, with the aims to enhance worldwide cooperation in Research and Development. NWJ aims to provide the highest coverage in the fields of Nanotechnology, Nanomedicine, Nanomaterials, Nanoenergy, Nanoparticles, Graphene, Cancer Nanotechnology, Nanotubes, Nanosensors, Nanotechnology Drug Delivery, Materials science, etc., to help to overcome problems too frequently underestimated and growing from energy to environment and natural disasters, from cancer to hardware and space.

Experimental Investigation of Nanostructured Tube by Accumulative Tube Bonding as a Novel Severe Plastic Deformation Process

Mohan Ganpatrao Bodkhe, Sanjeev Sharma, Pritam Babu Sharma and Abdel-Hamid Ismail Mourad

A novel severe plastic deformation (SPD) process for manufacturing high strength multilayer tubes titled accumulative tube-bonding (ATB) is proposed in this article. By conducting numerous runs of the ATB process, grain refinement as well as mechanical characteristics were investigated experimentally and numerically.

Iron Oxide Nanoparticles Synthesized Using Mentha piperita Extract and Evaluation of Its Antibacterial and Antimigratory Potential on Highly Metastatic Human Breast Cells

Huzaifa Umar, Maryam Rabiu Aliyu and Dilber Uzun Ozsahin
Iron oxide nanoparticles (Fe2O3NPs) stabilized with Mentha piperita obtained from Cyprus were synthesized. The study focused on exploring the anti-migratory potential, cytotoxicity, anti-proliferative and antimicrobial potential of Fe2O3 NPs using wound healing assay, trypan blue, 3-[4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl]-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide (MTT) and disc diffusion, respectively.

Economical Production of Corrosion and Temperature Shielding Coatings for Deep Water Applications

Patchamatla Satyanarayana Raju, Ajjarapu Venkata Narayana Lakshmi Sharma and Allaka Gopichand

In this study, we present the inexpensive fabrication of titania and silica thin films on an aluminum substrate to enhance corrosion resistance, as well as the ability to reflect infrared radiation and protect the temperature, extending the substrate’s useful life using a sol-gel dip coating approach.

Nanosensor Prototype for Antidepressant Drugs Based on Cytochrome P450 Enzyme

Paola Ghisellini, Eugenia Pechkova, Cristina Rando, Patrizia Garbati, Rosanna Spera, Katia Barbaro, Roberto Eggenhöffner and Stefano Benedicenti

Cytochrome P450 (CYPs) monooxygenases are well-known drug-metabolizing enzymes involved in the metabolism of xenobiotic molecules in animals and plants. Particularly active in drug metabolism are the mammalian liver CYP species, which exhibit broad and overlapping substrate specificity for one another.

Structural Properties and Antibacterial Activity of Zinc Sulfide Nanoparticles

Ftema Waniss Abdalhade Aldbea, Zenab Abdoorhman, Ruqayah Abdulsalam Almahdi, Mabrok Kraini, Nada Abusalah Imrigha, Pramod Kumar Singh and Carlos Vázquez Vázquez

Zinc sulfide (ZnS) nanoparticles powders were prepared using the sol-gel method at pH values of 5, 6, and 7. The samples were treated at 200 °C for 1 h. The X-ray diffraction (XRD) results showed that the samples have a cubic crystal structure.

NanoWorld Journal Review Process

Corresponding authors submitting the manuscript must explicitly indicate the specific area of expertise among the five ones published on our website under the Editorial Board by each of the two Associate Editors (AE) and if none of the five Associates is appropriate the author must indicate both under which one of six sectors of NWJ (Energy, Environment, Space, Hardware, Cancer, Science and Society as indicated on Scope and Aims) is falling his/her paper and under which one of the remaining Editorial Board Members (EBM) is falling the expertise for his/her submission. If none of the Editorial Board is indicated, the paper will be submitted by the Managing Editor (ME) to the Editor in Chief (EIC) along with a ranking based on four indicators, namely the number of SCI best articles (10 over 10 deciles) as first author and as last author, the total H-index and the total number of Science Citation Index publications regardless the number of deciles, whereby if this last indicator is zero the paper will not be considered for further review.

Authors have to indicate two referee to be added to the list of experts in the selected fields nominated by ME and AE among the referees assembled and constantly updated in terms of their total H index, patent index, prototypes and total Impact Factor normalized by average number of co-authors and author position. Upon AE and/or EBM and/or referee’s recommendations’ selected papers are finally accepted by the EIC in terms of adherence to the NWJ’s editorial policies for the submitted papers defined in the NWJ Scope, Aims & Topics. These new criteria for measuring excellence called “NWJ Impact Points” are calculated and illustrated in the article “How Bibliometric Indicators Should Be Used to Assess Excellence in Science and Technology” published in 2016 by the EIC Nicolini Claudio.
