Serial crystallography (SX) using X-ray-free electron lasers (XFEL) or synchrotron X-rays is an emerging research area that offers the opportunity to determine room temperature structures without causing or reducing radiation damage, respectively. Moreover, pump–probe experiments using optical lasers or liquid application methods provide an opportunity to observe time-resolved molecular dynamics, beyond the traditional X-ray crystallography technique. The field of serial femtosecond crystallography (SFX) and serial synchrotron crystallography (SSX) research has been expanding rapidly in recent years, both in terms of technology and the growing number of research groups. The research approach or technical know-how by the experts in the SX field will provide useful information not only for colleagues in the field of SX research but also for researchers who want to perform SX.
I invite researchers to contribute to this Special Issue on “Serial X-ray Crystallography”, which is intended to serve as a unique multidisciplinary forum covering broad aspects of the current status of SX beamline, research results, reviews, and research outlooks. This issue also collects preliminary and negative research findings in terms of collecting more information and expanding the base of the SX.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All submissions that pass pre-check are peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Crystals is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 2000 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
