Aims and Tasks Pursued by the Journal
NANO-and MICROSYSTEMS TECHOLOGY
The aims of the interdisciplinary theoretical and applied scientific and technical journal NANO-and MICROSYSTEMS TECHOLOGY is coverage of the modern state, prospects and development trends in the nano- and microsystem technology, presentation of the results of research and development, and also their introduction in various areas of science, technology and production, with periodicity of 12 issues in a year in Russian and English languages in the basic printed version. The microsystems engineering (MSE) based on the microsystems technology (MST) and the microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) uses the planar and volume constructional properties of the elements for creation of a new generation of devices, instruments and mechanisms of high complexity applied in radio engineering, optics, mechanical engineering, instrument making, chemistry and biomedicine on the basis of the microelectronics and nanosystems.
The keywords describing the content of the journal are nanotechnologies, probe microscopy, micromachines and nanosystems, molecular electronics, bioactive nanotechnologies, elements of sensors and biochips, microelectromechanical systems, micro-opto-electromechanical systems, bio-microelectromechanical systems, micro- and nano-electronic "systems-on-a chip".
Since 2005 the journal comes out as Nano- and Microsystem Technology, ISSN 1813-8586, previously the journal was printed under the name of Microsystem Technology, ISSN 1684-6419, 1999-2004. The new name is focused on expansion of the range of the considered problems taking into account development of the microsystem technology and transition from microelectronic techniques to nanotechnology with the use of nanomaterials for creation of nanosystems.
The transliterated name of the journal is NANO- I MIKROSISTEMNAYA TEKNIKA and its parallel name in English is NANO- and MICROSYSTEMS TECHOLOGY.
The task of NANO- and MICROSYSTEMS TECHOLOGY is to ensure conformity to the requirements presented by Scopus international abstract database during publication of the articles and reviews, and unconditional observance of the principles of the Code of Ethics of the scientific publications. The share of foreign members in the journal’s Editorial Council and Editorial Board equals to 10 %.
Since May, 2003, the journal is issued under a scientific-methodical guidance of the Department of Information Technologies and Computing Systems of the Russian Academy of Sciences, which in 2008 was reorganized into Department of Nanotechnologies and Information Technologies of the Russian Academy of Sciences.
Since 2014 its articles are supplied with additional lists of literature in Latin letters (References) and the journal is included in INSPEC, international base of technical literature in English.
Since 2015 all the articles in their basic printed versions are translated into English and the journal is included in the international base - Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS), which is a part of Medline on Web of Science platform.
