Each journal in the ACS Au portfolio is led by a Deputy Editor with special expertise in the journal’s subject area. ACS Nanoscience Au‘s Deputy Editor is Ray Schaak, DuPont Professor of Materials and Chemistry at Penn State University.
In this video, Professor Schaak discusses a variety of issues, including how his background as a solid-state synthetic chemist led him to nanoscience, the future of nanoscience and technology, what open access means for nanoscience, and how ACS Nanoscience Au will be central to those developments.
ACS Nanoscience Au is an open access journal that publishes original articles on fundamental, and applied research on nanoscience, as well as nanotechnology research at the interfaces of chemistry, biology, medicine, materials science, physics, and engineering. The journal welcomes short letters, comprehensive articles, reviews, and perspectives. ACS Nanoscience Au also publishes original experimental and theoretical research of an applied nature that integrates knowledge in the areas of materials, engineering, physics, bioscience, and chemistry into important applications of nanomaterials.
