Publisher Taylor & Francis Group, UK, has announced an agreement with Purdue University’s Network for Computational Nanotechnology. Under the deal, both parties will jointly explore and develop a set of new online content and collaboration offerings to aid the global nanoscience research community.
In a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU), officials from Taylor & Francis Group and the Network for Computational Nanotechnology agreed to cooperate to increase availability, volume, and appeal of online content for nanoscience. The two parties also agreed to explore new ways to make it easier for scientists, researchers and students to create and share content with colleagues.
The Network for Computation Nanotechnology’s nanoHUB (www.nanoHUB.org) is a web-based resource funded by the National Science Foundation to promote research, education, and collaboration in nanotechnology. With over 25,000 users, nanoHUB currently hosts nearly 800 nanoscience resources. This includes a breakthrough suite of online simulation tools, along with online presentations, courses, learning modules and podcasts.
Taylor & Francis Group publishes more than 80 nanotechnology textbooks, reference books and journals, representing over 1,000 nanoscience research authors and editors. Among Taylor & Francis’ titles are the best-selling Handbook of Nanoscience, Engineering, and Technology, 2nd Edition and the Dekker Encyclopedia of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology.
