Aims and Scope
The journal aims to publish papers at the forefront of nanoscale science and technology and especially those of an interdisciplinary nature. Here, nanotechnology is taken to include the ability to individually address, control, and modify structures, materials and devices with nanometre precision, and the synthesis of such structures into systems of micro- and macroscopic dimensions such as MEMS based devices. It encompasses the understanding of the fundamental physics, chemistry, biology and technology of nanometre-scale objects and how such objects can be used in the areas of computation, sensors, nanostructured materials and nano-biotechnology.

Verified Reviews
Note: Verified reviews are sourced from across review platforms and social media globally.
May 5th, submission. One week later, edited and passed by finding reviewers.
June 24th, third reviewer, gave major revisions. (The delay in reviewing time was due to the loss of the PDF images in the paper, otherwise it would have been faster.)
July 21st, returned manuscript. (There was a second submission due to formula issues, which caused a slight delay.)
August 2nd, pre-acceptance, all reviewers agreed to accept.
August 11th, final acceptance.
The total cycle is about three months. I think the speed is very fast, considering my personal carelessness causing some delay. Otherwise, it could have been even faster. Regarding the return of the manuscript, I think the most important thing is to have a proper attitude, address the reviewers' questions seriously, and provide detailed and multi-perspective answers, instead of responding hastily in a few sentences. Otherwise, the reviewers may feel disrespected. Also, I would like to ask how long it takes for the paper to be published online.

2.11 Submission;
Review after two weeks;
3.16 Revision (deadline is April 12th);
4.1 Revised;
4.12 Second revision (mainly because one reviewer misunderstood and raised an unimportant question during the first revision, deadline is April 18th);
4.17 Revised (I procrastinated);
4.21 Accepted.
Overall, it went smoothly. In general, there is no problem with submitting and receiving within two months. Actually, the long revision time was entirely due to my procrastination. I believe that as long as the content is comprehensive and the narrative is clear, this journal does not have high requirements for innovation. My article has some degree of innovation, but I was in a hurry to submit, so I followed the principle of not wanting to make modifications and submitted it to this journal. I'm very grateful that Nano accepted it. Cheering for NaNo, hoping to at least return to JCR1, please please.
