Peer Review Process

The journal uses ‘Single Blind Review’ of the manuscripts, the reviewers must maintain the confidentiality during reviewing and post review of manuscript. The manuscript work should be evaluated in respective field of expertise and detailed feedback and recommendation should be provided to editors.

Standard review time is 3 weeks (time allotted to reviewers).

The standard review process will be applicable to special issues or special topic issues.


Currently, the journal publishes two issues per year with continuous processing and publication of submissions (by As We Go model).

About JMNS

The Journal of Materials NanoScience is a top-tier venue for discoveries in nanoscience, nanotechnology, nanomaterials and smart nanomaterials. The JMNS:

  • would get high Impact by wide circulation and indexing in different scientific content databases.
  • provides free access to all of its research articles for one or more months for each issue (Green open access),
  • would deposit published research articles in different databases.
  • is an ideal home for authors seeking the broadest audience for their most important work.

The journal is led by Editor and an Editorial Board of peer scientists whose depth and experience ensure fair and competent peer review.

Sending your work to the JMNS

The journal considers research submissions in several categories. The JMNS receives submissions only through its website; submissions by mail or e-mail will be returned.

Do you have a question about a manuscript you've already submitted?

  • When a manuscript is received and confirmed by the JMNS, an acknowledgment is sent via e-mail to the corresponding author. For any communication with us, please reference the tracking number assigned by the JMNS noted in the acknowledgment.
  • In order to avoid confusion regarding correspondence, inquiries, and decisions, the JMNS will typically communicate only with those who are designated as corresponding authors during the submission process.

Copyright/Content Access: The Journal publishes articles with 'Green Open Access' (no fee to authors) with reproduction copyright assigned to publisher ScienceIN Publishing.

Unique IDs for Articles: The journal is currently using URN number for the published articles (however, this is currently meant for internal use by journal). The journal will process the assigning of DOI (Digital Object Indentifier) to articles (including previously published ones) once the journal is indexed in Web of Science (Clarivate) as it help in providing the correct citations records for the published articles.

Manuscript submitted and processed for reviewing can't be withdrawn. If authors donot respond to emails for the reviewed and accepted manuscript, then the article will be published by the journal in as such format with a retraction note 'withdrawn by authors' by no response.

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

The Journal ‘Journal of Materials NanoScience’ and its Publisher ‘ScienceIn’ follows the best practices in evaluation of contents, processing of manuscripts and publishing thereof. The Journal and Publisher essentially follows the code of conduct defined by Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) for Journal Editors (Code of Conduct and Best Practices Guidelines for Journal Editors listed in COPE guidelines and Publisher (the Code of Conduct Journal Publishers listed in COPE page COPE site

The ethics guidelines/code of conduct details for reviewers can be referred at https://pubs.thesciencein.org/reviewers-code-of-conduct/


All the editors should handle the assigned manuscripts by observing fair processing of submissions, editorial independence, confidentiality, and rational decision making within stipulated time framework with the feedback obtained from independent reviewer/experts in the field of work covered in respective manuscript. A detailed code of conduct mentioned in COPE reference documents and ScienceIn page https://pubs.thesciencein.org/editors-code-of-conduct/ should be adhered to.


The Publisher ‘ScienceIn’ handles the unethical publishing cases. In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication or plagiarism, the publisher, in close collaboration with the editors, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question. This includes the prompt publication of an erratum, clarification or, in the most severe case, the retraction of the affected work. The publisher, together with the editors, shall take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, and under no circumstances encourage such misconduct or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
