Outstanding reviewers

Nanoscale Horizons once again recognised the significant contributions that our reviewers have made to the journal and highlighted the 2020 Outstanding Reviewers for Nanoscale Horizons in this Editorial.

Community board collections

We published two collections on topics selected by the Community Board members of Materials Horizons and Nanoscale Horizons:

  • Solar Energy Conversion, Guest Edited by Rebecca Gieseking (Brandeis University, USA), Alexandra Ramadan (University of Oxford, UK) and Jungki Ryu (Ulsan National Institute of Science and Technology, Republic of Korea).
  • Optical and Photonic Materials, Guest Edited by Xiaolu Zhuo (CIC biomaGUNE, Spain), Li Na Quan (Virginia Tech, USA) and Qingchen Dong (Shanghai University, China).

Horizons journal club

We held our first Materials Horizons and Nanoscale Horizons Journal Club. The format aims to encourage discussion of the cutting-edge research published in the journals and fosters community engagement between our authors and readers.

The first event focussed on energy storage and conversion and featured following speakers and papers. It was hosted and chaired by members of our early-career Community Board and supported by our Editorial Board.
