Aims and Scopes

Avestia Publishing has initiated the publication of the International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Nanotechnology (IJTAN).

This journal is based on the continuous model in English and adopts the open-access model, meaning all interested audience have free access to the journal's homepage and articles with no need for subscription. This ensures larger audience and therefore higher citations.

Users are allowed to read, download, copy, distribute, print, search, or link to the full texts of the articles in this journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. This is in accordance with the BOAI definition of open access.

All published papers of IJTAN are currently indexed in Google Scholar, CAS, Index Copernicus International, Academic Index, Mendeley, Genomics JournalSeek, and Primo Central. We are in the process of submitting all published papers to Microsoft Academic Search and Open J-Gate for indexing. Additionally, IJTAN will also be permanently archived in Portico (one of the largest community-supported digital archives in the world) and each article will be assigned unique DOIs by CrossRef.

IJTAN is high quality peer-reviewed journal, where every article will be peer-reviewed by several experts in the field. Upon acceptance, articles will be published in the latest open volume. One continuous volume per year is published. IJTAN welcomes research and review papers related to:

  • Characterization and Applications
  • Fabrication of Nanodevices
