Nanomagnetism is an ever-expanding field that has witnessed great scientific advancement over the past two decades. The synthesis of novel magnetic nanomaterials, the exploration of associated magnetic phenomena, and the characterization techniques and applications in diverse areas of nanotechnology continue to make important new inroads.
For this Special Issue, both new scientific contributions and review articles are being solicited on the synthesis, characterization, and application of 0D, 1D, 2D, and 3D magnetic nanostructures. The ability to characterize their static and dynamic magnetic properties, on a wide range of timescales, is fundamental to understanding the underlying physics responsible for their behavior. Novel behavior arises from the surface and interface effects of non-collinear spin structures because of spatial confinement, the spin coupling of different magnetic phases across phase boundaries, interparticle interactions, and tunable magnetoresistive and superparamagnetic properties. Magnetophoretic technologies in the bio-medical field have tremendously advanced biomolecule and cell separation methodologies, magnetically-guided drug delivery, gene delivery, and transfection. Within the magnetophoretic platform, superparamagnetic iron oxide nanoparticle (SPION) carriers have been developed as bifunctional agents for disease diagnosis and therapy.
Full articles, communications, and reviews on these and related areas exploring the fundamental physics and applications of nanomagnetism will be considered.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Nanomaterials is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
