Abstract:
The Nano Archive (www.nanoarchive.org), the online open-access repository for nanoscience and nanotechnology, invites you to submit research papers to be published free online for users across the globe.

Call for research papers: The Nano Archive

UK | Posted on April 23rd, 2010

Submitted papers can include peer-reviewed articles, journal articles, review articles, conference and workshop papers, theses and dissertations, book chapters and sections, as well as multimedia and audio-visual materials. The Nano Archive also welcomes new, unpublished research results to be shared with the wider community.

The Nano Archive is part of the ICPC NanoNet project, funded by the EU under FP7. It brings together partners from the EU, Russia, India, China and Africa, and provides wider access to published nanoscience research and opportunities for collaboration between scientists in the EU and International Cooperation Partner Countries. Currently hosting more than 6,000 items, this electronic archive of nanoscience publications has a simple interface for the deposit of full-text papers and incorporates facilities for retrieval by browsing or searching. It is freely accessible to researchers everywhere, making research papers and other scholarly publications widely available.

The Nano Archive aims to:

· reduce access barriers to research output from nano scientists and researchers across the globe,

· ensure records are readily searchable and retrievable by providing an Open Archives Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting compliant service,

· bring together material currently distributed across different institutions.

Benefits for you as a researcher:

· Your research is available more widely - to academics and others, worldwide. Research shows that free online availability substantially increases a paper's impact.

· If your research funding conditions require open access to the findings of the research project, this is one way of complying with that requirement.

· It speeds up research sharing through new ways of locating and accessing academic papers.

· It helps free research output from access barriers and tolls.

· Your research is stored in a secure central, searchable space, indefinitely.

· Easy access to your papers for students and research partners.

· Access to similar repositories worldwide.

The Nano Archive is similar to other international eprints initiatives

Institutional Repositories have been established by many universities and other organisations around the world over the last few years. Their development is part of an international movement to overcome the constraints and escalating costs of traditional scholarly publishing. By compliance with a standard protocol, the Open Archive Initiative Protocol for Metadata Harvesting, it is possible for all repositories to be searched from a single point. Distributed institutional and disciplinary repositories can all be searched as if they were one, using search engines such as Scientific Commons, Google Scholar or OAISter.

A guide for authors and other relevant information for submitting papers is available on the users' page at www.nanoarchive.org/help/

and on the policies page at www.nanoarchive.org/policies.html
