News: Call for article submission in Special Issue of Nanomaterials

Dear Colleagues,

The journal Nanomaterials (ISSN 2079-4991, IF 4.034) is currently 
running a Special Issue entitled “The Genetic Changes Induced by 
Engineered Manufactured Nanomaterials (EMNs)”. I am serving as the Guest 
Editor for this issue. I do believe you could make an excellent 
contribution based on your expertise and research interests in this field.
The possibility that engineered manufactured nanomaterials (ENMs) can be 
harmful to the genetic materials of living individuals has been raised 
by several experiments, but it is, however, still controversial. In 
fact, there is also evidence that nanoparticles are not genotoxic and do 
not interfere with the genetic materials of organisms. It is of extreme 
importance to establish which nanomaterials have the potential to exert 
harmful effects on DNA in any type of living organisms, from simple 
prokaryotes to complex eukaryotes, starting from model organisms. The 
aims and scopes of this Special Issue are to (1) highlight the research 
applications that find out which ENMs are genotoxic and which are the 
more susceptible organisms or cell lines, and (2) to pinpoint reliable 
methods to establish the genotoxicity of ENMs.

For further reading, please follow the link to the Special Issue website at:

The submission deadline is 28 February 2021. You may send your 
manuscript now or up until the deadline. Submitted papers should not be 
under consideration for publication elsewhere. We also encourage authors 
to send a short abstract or tentative title to me or Ms. Erika Zhao from 
the Editorial Office in advance (
Nanomaterials is fully open access. *Open Access* free and unlimited 
access for readers; *High visibility* indexed by the SCIE, Scopus, 
Chemical Abstracts, Inspec, and Polymer Library; citations are available
