Crystals is a peer-reviewed, open access journal, published monthly online by MDPI, that covers all aspects of Crystallography.
  • Open Access— free for readers, with article processing charges (APC) paid by authors or their institutions.
  • High Visibility: indexed within Scopus, SCIE (Web of Science), Inspec, CAPlus / SciFinder, and other databases.
  • Journal Rank: JCR - Q2 (Crystallography) / CiteScore - Q2 (Condensed Matter Physics)
  • Rapid Publication: manuscripts are peer-reviewed and a first decision is provided to authors approximately 10.8 days after submission; acceptance to publication is undertaken in 2.9 days (median values for papers published in this journal in the first half of 2023).
  • Recognition of Reviewers: reviewers who provide timely, thorough peer-review reports receive vouchers entitling them to a discount on the APC of their next publication in any MDPI journal, in appreciation of the work done.
