Spotlight January 2022: Methods, models, mechanisms and metadata

Home > Spotlight January 2022: Methods, models, mechanisms and metadata

For the new year, we are presenting no “classic” paper here, but would like to point out an editorial: Methods, Models, Mechanisms and Metadata: Introduction to the Nanotoxicology Collection at F1000 Research.

This editorial introduces the F1000Research Nanotoxicology Collection, where best practices can be collected in the form of original research reports, including no-effect studies, protocols and methods papers, software reports and systematic reviews. The aim of the collection is to provide an open access platform for nanotoxicology researchers to support an improved culture of data sharing and documentation of evolving protocols, biological and computational models, software tools and datasets that can be used and built upon to develop predictive models and in-silico nanotoxicology and nanoinformatics.

F1000Research (https://f1000research.com/) is an open-research publishing platform for scientists, academics and clinicians, enabling rapid publication of articles and other research outputs without editorial interference. All articles benefit from transparent peer review and editorial guidance to make all source data openly available.

Spotlight Juli 2020: “Nanosafety – More than just regulatory processes”

Nanosafety is more than just a compulsory aspect of nanomaterials research and regulation. This research area also has great potential to drive new innovations. It is exactly this perspective that is addressed in the special issue “Rethinking Nanosafety: Harnessing Progress and Driving Innovation” by Chen et al. 2020. The article illustrates that especially in the field of […]

Spotlight July 2022: New definition on nanomaterials published

The European Union has published a new definition for nanomaterials as of June 2022. It is recommended that this be used as a basis for future legislation. The new documents can be found on the EC website. In the new “nanodefinition”, the essential components such as the origin or the size range of the particles […]

Spotlight December 2021: Silica nanoparticles improve plant disease resistance

The resistance of plants to various pathogens is often increased in agriculture with various chemicals (“fertilizers”). A new direction is being taken with the use of nanoparticles. These can be sprayed on the plants. In the present study, the model plant Arabidopsis was used to investigate whether silicon dioxide nanoparticles (SiO2) can increase resistance to […]

Spotlight November 2021: Safe Materials from Scratch – Safe-by-Design in Materials Research

Advances in the field of materials science continue to amaze us with nanoscale materials with extraordinary chemical, electrical, optical, and numerous other properties. However, some nanoscale materials have different toxicological profiles compared to the same bulk material. Since safety issues are usually addressed just before launching a product into the market, safety issues may be […]
