National Nanomanufacturing Network Process Database and Expert Review Contributing Editors

Written by Jessica Adamick

The NNN is seeking Contributing Editors to author Expert Reviews and Process Database submissions. By publishing content on InterNano, you will not only make an important contribution to the growing body of nanomanufacturing literature, you will also bring visibility to the domain and to the experts who are engaged with it. All InterNano articles are assigned quality metadata and are search engine optimized so that your work will be easily found. All Expert Reviews receive a Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which enables persistent identification in a digital environment. Expert Reviews are often featured in the National Nanomanufacturing Network’s monthly newsletter and weekly mailer, which is distributed to 4,500 (and growing) subscribers.

The InterNano Process Database is a knowledge base of techniques for processing nanoscale materials, devices, and structures that includes step-by-step descriptions, images, notes on methodology and environmental variables, and associated references and patent information. The purpose of the Process Database is to facilitate the sharing of appropriate process knowledge across laboratories. An example of a process includes Fabrication of a nanoporous template from a diblock copolymer film – electric field alignment.

Expert Reviews present a detailed review of recently published research or state of practice in nanomanufacturing, and focus on those advances in applications, devices, metrology, materials, and related topics that impact the scaled manufacturing and will facilitate the commercial development and/or marketable application of nanoscale materials, systems, and devices. The reviews should be 500-1000 words, written for an audience with some scientific background. Two recent examples of Expert Reviews include  Flexible, Large Area Active Matrix Backplane Technology By Solution Cast Carbon Nanotube Thin Film Transistors and Lead-Free Nanowire Piezoelectric Nanogenerator: Potential for Ubiquitous Power.

InterNano areas of coverage include nanomanufacturing processes; tools for nanomanufacturing; nanoscale objects and nanostructured materials; nanomanufacturing characterization techniques; environmental, health and safety considerations for nanomanfuacturing; social and economic implications of nanomanufacturing; informatics and standards for nanomanufacturing; commercialization, regulation, and intellectual property.

Minimum qualifications for Expert Review and Process Database Contributing Editors are:
  • Graduate-level education in an area of chemistry, physics, materials science, or engineering related to nanoscience and technology
  • Familiarity with the nanomanufacturing industry
  • Experience with technical writing
  • Excellent written communication skills
Preferred qualifications:
  • PhD in an area of chemistry, physics, materials science, or engineering related to nanoscience and technology.
Contributing Editors will be paid $50 for each process and $100 for each Expert Review, up to $1200 per year. To apply, please send a letter of interest, CV, and 1-3 writing samples to Jessica Adamick, InterNano Project Manager, at This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it by February 20, 2012.
