Journal Submissions

Nanomedicine Journal

Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine (Nanomedicine)

Nanomedicine NBM publishes articles on all issues related to nanomedicine, including the application of nanoscience and nanotechnology in biology and medicine.

Manuscripts must be directly or closely related to medicine (diagnosis, treatment, monitoring, prognosis and prevention of diseases) and supporting biology, especially understanding biologic mechanisms enabled by nanoscience, -engineering and -technology research, i.e.such as, research of man-made nanoscale objects, materials, and devices that improve medical procedures and outcome.

For consideration into the Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine journal please select the “Submit to Nanomedicine: Nanotechnology, Biology and Medicine” button during the on-line submission procedure.
