Metallomics is delighted to announce that we’ve launched a new themed collection, on the subject of Metal Nanoparticles in Biological and Environmental Systems. This collection will be Guest Edited by Björn Meermann (Federal Institute for Materials Research and Testing (BAM), Germany), Volker Niscwitz (Research Centre Jülich, Germany) and Katrin Löschner (National Food Institute, DTU, Denmark).
Next to specific applications and investigations of nanomaterials in the fields of Environment, Biology and Toxicology, this special collection also includes work from the analytical methods area – including new analytical methods for nanomaterial analysis but also nanomaterials improving analytical techniques. Metallomics publishes articles that enhance our chemical and/or physical understanding of the molecular mechanisms of metal-dependent life processes, and those that probe the common space between metallomics and other ‘omics approaches to uncover new insights into biological processes.
The following application examples may be included, but are not limited to: fate/interaction of nanoparticle pollutions/emissions, nano-remediation: soil/water, nano-purification: remediation of soil/water, nano drugs & nanoparticle drug carrier systems, theranostics – nanoparticles in use as drug as well as diagnosis, nano-tox studies, “classical” eco-tox-studies of new & innovative nanomaterials, and eco-tox-studies sheding light on e.g. modes of action on a molecular basis.
The deadline for submissions is 30th September 2020
However, we are very aware of the challenging situation worldwide due to the Covid-19 outbreak and we will be very flexible with this deadline. Please do let us know if you’d like to be involved, even if you suspect the deadline above may be unachievable.
We welcome the submission of all types of Metallomics articles – Communications, Full papers and Review articles. If you are interested in writing a review article please contact the Editorial Office to discuss potential topics (firstname.lastname@example.org). All submissions will go through the Royal Society of Chemistry’s fair and impartial peer-review process and must fit within the scope of the journal. Once your article is accepted, it will be published online and assigned a citable DOI. If you’re interested in submitting to this special collection, please do get in touch with us.
