On May 28, the Institute of Electronics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences (IECAS) and Natural Publishing Group (NPG) officially signed a co-publishing agreement on Microsystems & Nanoengineering, aiming at creating a journal with leading international academic influence in the fields of microsystems and nanoengineering. Academician Yirong Wu, Director of IECAS, and Dr. Nick Campbell, Greater China Head of NPG, both gave speeches at the signing ceremony. Dr. Tianhong Cui, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota, as well as researcher Shanhong Xia, Director of the State Key Laboratory for Sensing Technology (Northern Base), Dr. Tuanjie Liu, Director of Editorial Department of the Academic Journal, and other staff of the Editorial Department attended the signing ceremony together.

 

Academician Yirong Wu, Director of IECAS, acts as Editor-in-Chief of Microsystems & Nanoengineering, and Dr. Tianhong Cui, Professor of Mechanical Engineering at the University of Minnesota acts as Executive Editor-in-Chief. The journal will be freely accessible online, and officially go live on nature.com on March, 2015. Submissions will begin in the second half of 2014, mainly accepting original papers and overviews focusing on the latest research progress in the field of Micro and Nano Electro Mechanical Systems (MEMS/NEMS). Reports will mainly cover the designs of micro and nano devices and systems (theory, modeling and simulation), advanced manufacture, testing technology, reliability and new applications, nanoengineering technology, etc.

 

The objectives of Microsystems & Nanoengineering adhere to the integration of theory with practice, as well as that of academics and engineering with application, reporting the latest research results in the fields of microsystems and nanoengineering, leading the developing direction of disciplines, promoting the transformation from scientific and technological achievements to applied productivity, and providing an academic platform for scientists worldwide to cooperate and exchange their latest research outcomes. Microsystems & Nanoengineering will play a crucial role in increasing the influence and voice of China in MEMS/NEMS, as well as developing technological innovative impetus and the cultural soft power of China.

 

Since the late 1980s, MEMS/NEMS, based on microelectronic technique and nanotechnology, has been a hot multi- and inter-disciplinary research area. MEMS signifies microsystems which can be produced in batches, such as micro-sensors, micro-actuators, and signal processing and controlling circuits. NEMS is a super-miniature mechatronics system with nanotechnology characteristics in systematic featuring sizes and effects following MEMS. In the 21st century, the rapid developments in information technology, biological technology, new materials, energy, environment, advanced manufacturing technology necessarily have led to new claims on devices and systems being raised, and in future development their microminiaturization, intelligentization, high integration, high density, and ultrafast information transmission will become major trends. The development of MEMS/NEMS will be strategically significant for social progress, economy prosperity, and national power enhancement.

 

NPG is an internationally renowned publisher. There are currently 64 NPG academic publications which are authoritative journals with leading influence in their related areas; these are represented by Nature. Microsystems & Nanoengineering, which is the 9th journal to be published by NPG in collaboration with partners in China, and the 17th in the Asia-Pacific region.
