“Lessons from Nanoscience” aims to not only communicate recent developments in nanoscience, but to use them to re-think old and familiar subjects. Some of these viewpoints may not yet be in final form. We hope this series will provide a forum for them to evolve and develop into the textbooks of tomorrow that train and guide our students and young researchers as they turn nanoscience into nanotechnology. To help communicate across disciplines, the series aims to be accessible to anyone with a bachelor’s degree in science or engineering. (file:File.doc not found)

Information for Prospective Authors:

Authors interested in contributing to the series should prepare a short prospectus for a proposed volume of less than 300 pages. Include a paragraph (or a maximum of two) describing the proposed volume, why the topic is important, and how it addresses the vision of the series. Also include a list of the chapter titles, and send the prospectus to one of the series editors. Suggested format:

  1. Title of the proposed volume
  2. Brief description in one or two paragraphs.
  3. Brief discussion of how the proposed volume aligns with the vision of the series.
    Does it:
    : a)Treat an important, new topic with a unique “point-of-view”?
    : b)Treat an important topic in a way that transcends disciplinary boundaries?
    : c)Treat a traditional topic in science or engineering from the perspective of recent advanced in nanoscience?
  4. Listing of chapter titles
  5. Tentative delivery date for manucript

Please send your prospectus to the series editors:
