Special Issue for Micro & Nano Letters

Authors are invited to revise their IEEE-NEMS 2018 papers and submit them to Micro & Nano Letters for consideration for publication in the journal. Your manuscript should be based on the IEEE-NEMS 2018 paper but must build significantly on it, with at least 30% of the submitted results representing new research. Additional text, figures and references are obligatory, and no passages of text or figures should be identical to your conference paper as this could breach IEEE copyright. A nearly exact duplicate of the conference paper will be rejected.

  • Submission deadline: May 30 2018 extend to June 30, 2018.
  • Notification of first decision: August 31 2018
  • Final notification of acceptance: September 30 2018
  • Publication: November 2018 (accepted individual papers will be published online ahead of the issue when ready)

Your paper should be submitted to the special issue via the Micro & Nano Letters online submission site (https://www.iet-review.rivervalleytechnologies.com/journal/mnl) stating, when prompted, that the paper is for the IEEE-NEMS 2018 special issue.

Submission details, such as how to format your manuscript, can be found in the Micro & Nano Letters author guide:

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Micromachines is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
