Materials of which a single unit is sized at least one dimension i.e., between 1 and 1000 nanometers (10 to the power of 9 meter) but it is usually 1-100 nm. Two types of nanomaterials are there they are Natural nanomaterials and Synthetic nanomaterials. Synthetic nanomaterials are again 2 types: Fullerenes and Nanoparticles. Nanomaterials research takes a materials science-based approach to nanotechnology. Nanoscale materials are too small and we cant see with our naked eyes and even with microscopes and those nanomaterials are called as engineered nanomaterials and they have unique optical, electronic, or mechanical properties.
Open access to the scientific literature means the removal of barriers (including price barriers) from accessing scholarly work. There are two parallel roads towards open access: Open Access articles and self-archiving. Open Access articles are immediately, freely available on their Web site, a model mostly funded by charges paid by the author (usually through a research grant). The alternative for a researcher is self-archiving (i.e., to publish in a traditional journal, where only subscribers have immediate access, but to make the article available on their personal and/or institutional Web sites (including so-called repositories or archives)), which is a practice allowed by many scholarly journals.
Open Access raises practical and policy questions for scholars, publishers, funders, and policymakers alike, including what the return on investment is when paying an article processing fee to publish in an Open Access articles, or whether investments into institutional repositories should be made and whether self-archiving should be made mandatory, as contemplated by some funders.
