World Scientific Publishing Company and Nature Publishing Group are pleased to announce their first co-publishing project. Entitled Nanoscience and Technology: A Collection of Reviews from NATURE Journals, the publishers will launch the book in October 2009 at Frankfurt Book Fair.

The book is a collection of more than 30 review articles by internationally-renowned researchers working in nanoscience and nanotechnology. The review articles were first published in a variety of Nature-branded journals. Among the topics covered are: nanomaterials and nanostructures; molecular machines and devices; nanoelectronics; nanophotonics; nanobiotechnology and nanomedicine; and applications of nanotechnology.

"World Scientific and Nature Publishing Group should be applauded for publishing this collection of some of the most important papers in nanoscience," said Dr. Mark Lundstrom, Don and Carol Scifres Distinguished Professor at Purdue University. "Pulling these papers together in one volume helps put the remarkable advances in this very new field in perspective, and stimulates thinking about future directions in nanoscience and technology. It will be an important resource for the community."

Professor Hongjie Dai, Stanford University added: "There is a need for a book such as this that provides an introduction to the many areas of nanoscale science and technology."

Commenting on this collaboration, Mr Max Phua, Executive Director of World Scientific said, "This is a significant partnership for World Scientific and Nature Publishing Group, with top articles from so many great scientists in a single title. I am certain that the synergy between both leading publishing entities in the scientific, technical and medical fields will greatly benefit the scientific community. We are delighted to partner Nature Publishing Group and look forward to many other collaborations."

"We are delighted to be working together with World Scientific on this joint book publication project that will bring together a collection of the 'best of the best' review articles on nanotechnology from across all Nature-branded journals," commented David Swinbanks, Publishing Director for Nature Publishing Group.

Quotes from other researchers about the book:

"This volume is an important collection of some of the best nanoscience papers from Nature over the last years, making it a valuable reference. The volume covers a broad range of seminal advances, covering topics such as nanoscale electronic and photonic materials, biological and medical applications, fabrication and assembly at the nanoscale, carbon and molecular-scale electronics, nano-optics and plasmonics, and many more. The collection of all these papers in one place makes it a must-have for any student or researcher in nanoscience."

- Mark Reed
Harold Hodgkinson Professor of Engineering and Applied Science
Professor of Electrical Engineering, Professor of Applied Physics
Yale University

"This collection of papers consists of some of the latest and most advanced reports in the field of nano-science and nano-technology. Topics covered include all aspects of the field: nano-optics, nano-electronics, nano-fabrication, DNA manipulation and nano-bio. In each case the papers represent ground breaking research, reported by some of the most prominent leaders in science and technology. This is a useful volume of value to all involved in today's research in nano-science and nano-technology."

- Leonard C. Feldman
Director, Rutgers Institute of Advanced Materials, Devices and Nanotechnology

"This is a remarkable assemblage - surveying many forefronts of contemporary nanoscience and nanotechnology."

- Professor Michael Roukes, California Institute of Technology.
