About Micro


Micro (ISSN 2673-8023) is an international and multidisciplinary scholarly open access journal. It publishes comprehensive reviews, original scientific research articles, communications, case reports, letters, commentaries, and editorials on microscale and nanoscale researches in chemistry, physics, biology, biochemistry, medicine, engineering, nanotechnology, biotechnology, optics, materials science, electronic science, etc. Thus, theoretical and experimental articles will be welcomed. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical research in as much detail as possible. Full experimental or methodical details, or both, must be provided for research articles. Computed data or files regarding the full details of the experimental procedure, if unable to be published in a normal way, can be deposited as supplementary material. 


Micro covers studies related to the following topics:

  • Microscale Chemistry: microanalysis; microreactors; microstructure; microscale peptide chromatography; microscale separations; etc.
  • Microscale Physics: microfluidics; microscale heat transfer; microchannels; microscale electronic science; etc.
  • Microscale Biology: immunofluorescence; microenvironments; microscale biotechnology; NMR; microscope imaging; microscale bioanalysis; microscale biosensing; microscale bioprocessing systems; etc.
  • Microscale Engineering: micromachinery; microscanners; micro- and nanomotors; microbiorobotics; etc.
  • Microscale Medicines: microscale drug delivery systems; cell-based microscale technologies; microscale medical devices; microscale thermophoresis; etc.
  • Microscale Materials Science: nanotechnology; microscale hydrogels; microstructural degradation; microscale fillers; etc.
  • Microscale Models
