The winner of “Top Papers Award” in 2019

The annual Top Papers Award has been established since 2015 by the editorial board of Nano  Research and the Tsinghua University Press (TUP). This award is open to any scientists worldwide who have published papers in Nano Research during the two preceding years. After  the JCR is released in each year, the winner will be determined by the Award Committee  (Editors-in-Chief, Associate Editors, representatives from TUP) according to the citation in the  latest year and the contribution of the papers.


The awardees will receive a prize of RMB 10,000 and a certificate. The winner’s name and  work will be featured in Nano Research and other media.


We are pleased to announce that the fifth Top Papers Awards are presented to the following  papers.
