- 2D Materials™ (2DM) aims to curate the most significant and cutting-edge research being undertaken in the field of two-dimensional materials science and engineering. Serving an expanding multidisciplinary community of researchers and technologists, our goal is to develop a selective journal dedicated to bringing together the most important new results and perspectives from across the discipline. Submissions should be essential reading for a particular sub-field and should also be of multidisciplinary interest to the wider community, with the expectation that published work will have significant impact.
Submissions that do not meet 2DM's strict acceptance criteria may be transferred at the discretion of the journal's editors (with author approval) to other relevant journals in the IOP portfolio, for further consideration.
2DM is a multidisciplinary journal devoted to publishing original research of the highest quality and impact covering all aspects of two-dimensional materials, including fundamental properties (experiments, theory and simulations), novel applications (electrical, mechanical, chemical and biomedical) and synthesis/fabrication techniques. Specific materials of interest will include, but are not limited to:
/// Graphene and graphene-derived materials (such as graphene oxides, graphene quantum dots etc)
/// Silicene and germanene/silicane and germanane
/// Boron nitride
/// Transition metal dichalcogenides
/// Two-dimensional topological insulators
/// Complex oxides
/// Composite materials
/// Other novel two-dimensional layered structures
In addition to publishing research articles that report urgent breakthrough results of significant importance to the field of two-dimensional materials, this journal also publishes Perspectives and invited-only Topical Reviews on themes of particular current interest to the community.
