What is Nano?

On 15 June 2015, Springer Nature launched Nano, the first non-journal-type product to be marketed by the company within the Nature Research portfolio.

Nano is a database, but it is also a discovery tool. It is designed to provide researchers in academia and industry a simple way to retrieve information on nanomaterials and nanodevices. Over 200,000 profiles have been created, and each is based on information extracted mainly from research articles published in 30 journals.

By searching the database, users are presented with at-a-glance information on different types of materials or devices related to the keyword used, including composition and properties, and including the source articles and patents from which the information has been extracted.
