To celebrate 10 years of publishing Nanoscale, we held a cake-cutting celebration featuring Professor Chunli Bai and Professor Dirk Guldi – the founding and current Editors-in-chief of the journal. Professor Bai shared his thoughts on how Nanoscale has developed over the last decade, growing into the largest high-impact nanoscience and nanotechnology journal.

Dr Helen Pain and Professor Chunli Bai celebrate the growth and success of Nanoscale since it launched in 2009.

Nanoscale journal family symposium

The RSC Nanoscale Journals Symposium was held in collaboration with the National Nanoscience Center. A number of Associate Editors who handle manuscripts for the nanoscale journal family, as well as outstanding young scholars selected by the journal, presented their latest research. Dr. Michaela Muehlberg, Managing Editor, also gave a talk about the writing and submission of papers.
