About Ceramics


Ceramics is an open access journal of related scientific research and technology development. It provides a forum for publishing papers which advance the in-depth understanding of the relationship between the structure, the microstructure, the properties and the applications of ceramic materials. It publishes reviews, regular research papers (articles) and short communications. Our aim is to encourage scientists to publish their experimental and theoretical results in as much detail as possible so that the results can be reproduced. Therefore, there is no restriction on the length of the papers.
