Nanobiotechnology is an international peer-reviewed journal that publishes research papers covering all aspects of the emerging and rapidly growing research area at the intersection of nanotechnology, molecular biology and biomedical sciences. Nanobiotechnology serves as an authoritative forum presenting state-of-the-art, multidisciplinary research and technological advances in theory, instrumentation and methods as well as applications in a variety of areas of nanotechnology related to biology and medicine. The convergence of nanotechnology and biomedical sciences opens a wide variety of biological research topics and medical uses at the molecular and cellular level. The long-term goal of Nanobiotechnology is to contribute to the information transfer and to the explosive growth of this important research area.
Journal impact factor is an index or a criteria devised by Eugene Garfield to categorize journals based on their citations. Impact factor is considered as a putative marker to indicate the journal quality. But the recent policies being adopted to improve the impact factor is becoming a topic of controversies today. This current scenario questions the reliability of impact factor. The citation index cannot be considered to determine the scientific quality of an article because the technicalities are not considering the scientific quality. Knowing or reading an article is not enough to determine their quality validating the content and approving the findings and revalidating the facts is vital in scientific research. It is highly impossible to do a scholar check in each and every article to detect fraudulent or unsubstantial citations.
