Rebranding the same old science!

Old Wine in a New Bottle?

What is nanoscience? Is it different from nanotechnology? Is it chemistry? Many chemists do think that nanoscience is another word for molecular chemistry. However, there are many who would argue with that definition (including the physicists, mechanical engineers, chemical engineers, bioengineers working in nanotechnology). Is molecular physics also nanoscience?

Though my own effort to understand nano science and technology over the last couple of years (as a journalist) and more so, after deciding to start the magazine, from last six months, has been that it is the same old science that Democritus, Rutherford, Rustom Roy, Milburn, etc have been talking about.

Hence I have been toying on the idea whether to ask this question or not… but after seeing the response that people have showered upon us for the blog, I assume I will get the answer!!!!

Best part that nano has brought in is that the youngsters think it is the most happening science and they are ready to show keen interest in this rather than “boring” chemistry and physics. By facing this happening tag to our good old science we are able to attract more kids to seriously take up nanotechnology!

What difference does the name make? Do kids seek out nano-related activities over more traditionally named activities? Or is this just rebranding of the same old science or is it something new? Can we make nanoscience something different?

If anyone has better way to explain nanotechnology please let me know. It would be of great help to understand….

Call for Editorial Contributions

Hello Everybody,


There has been a huge flow of inquiries from all quarters to find out how they could write articles or send their research papers for consideration of publication in the print version. Let me thank all of you for your keen interest to be part of our magazine.


First thing is we are launching the magazine in the last week of March. So the wait for the print version is almost getting over.


To have your articles published in the magazine , kindly note the below points:


1. The article should be original, unpublished elsewhere.

2. Before proceeding with the article, please inform about the topic in a two or three lines brief to the editor. Based on the confirmation you can proceed with the article.

3. Basically the magazine will not be a journal and we want article with less technical jargon, so you will have to write in that fashion only.

4. Length of the article should not be more than 1,500 words. Less the merrier, mind you we are working on Nano!

5. You can write a series of Nano (small) articles, but you will to have discuss about the same in advance and proceed with the series.


To have your research papers (abstracts) published in the magazine:


  1. The paper should be authored by the person/persons who have sent it. We need some kind of proof about the same, if they are students.
  2. All references and other acknowledgements have to be properly mentioned at the end of the paper.
  3. All the papers sent for publication will be scrutinized by a panel, and then will be sent for publication.
  4. If the panel recommends for more information, the authors should be in a position to provide the same at the earliest.
  5. If the panel rejects the paper, the same will be informed to the author/s about it through email.
  6. All the supporting documents, graphics, photos, should be sent in proper JPEG, TIFF formats to the below given address.


To have exclusive Photos or Artworks or Graphics that have been arrived at, during the research, to be published in the magazine, kindly note that we have an exclusive section (page) called NanoScapes which is dedicated to these. You can send these materials for publication with description and details of the photo or artwork or graphic.


To have profiles of Institues or Research centres or Organisations to be published in the magazine, kindly send the details of the same with supporting photos and contact information. If the editorial staff wants to contact the institute/centre/organization, please provide with correct names and addresses so that we could collect more information.


The magazine will have exclusive section devoted to education and career segments in the field of Nano Science and Technology. The section would be called as NanoPrimer. In this section, every issue, we will feature an educational institute talking about the courses, eligibility, facilities, faculty, etc (with photos). Those interested to spread the word about their educational institute kindly get in touch with the Editor for the same.


This apart, NanoPrimer will have specialized section which will give a complete view about the various opportunities that are available for Nano Scientists – from Research Fellowships to Job Opportunity in the industry. Those who want to reach larger, captive people in the field of Nano Science and Technology, they can get in touch with the magazine for sending across their message to people.


There has been also enquiries from few companies who have products that are used in and by Nano Science field, to feature about their products. The magazine would be more than willing to have details of the latest products that are available in the market, their specifications, usage, etc. We request the companies to send in their information to the Editor with proper images and complete details.


Please note: Unsolicited material would not be entertained.

Please be specific on what section you are addressing and what you want to contribute to the magazine.

All the rejected articles and papers/abstracts will not be returned.


The deadline for submitting your articles and other editorial material is March 1 .
