Read Journal Table of Contents

The Journal of the American Ceramic Society is among the top sources for ceramic materials science research, providing scientists, engineers, and students with critically assessed, original research for nearly 100 years. Ranked first among all journals in the materials science-ceramics category, the journal publishes 12 issues per year filled with top quality research that spans the diverse segments of ceramic science. Topics cover a broad range including: Glass science, crystal chemistry, microscopy and microstructure, bioceramic science, powder processing and colloidal science. Complete details can be found in the Aims and Scope section.

Aims and Scope

The Journal of the American Ceramic Society contains records of original research that provide or lead to fundamental principles in the science of ceramics and ceramic-based composites. These papers include reports of the discovery of new phases, phase relationships, processing approaches and microstructures that relate to ceramic materials and processes. The papers establish the links between processing, structure characterization and properties of ceramics, including modeling approaches that are founded on basic mechanisms. All the published papers must be of enduring value and relevant to the field of ceramics. Short papers for rapid publication are published as Communications and should be novel enough to justify rapid publication. Full-length papers are published as Articles and must add significantly new and fundamental advances to the field. In-depth Articles are published as invited Feature Articles and papers that appraise and assess a particular subject or topic are published as invited Review Articles.

Papers on all aspects of ceramic science are welcome including those in the following areas:

  • Powder preparation and colloidal science
  • Processing science
  • Nanotechnology science
  • Catalysis
  • Glass science
  • Structure characterization (atomic level to nano- and microstructural scales)
  • Crystal chemistry
  • Defects, diffusion, phase transformation, phase equilibria, thermodynamics, kinetics, chemical and thermal stability
  • Microscopy and microstructure
  • Mechanical, electrical, optical, magnetic or thermal properties of ceramics and glasses
  • Ionic conductivity
  • Bioceramic science
