It is 100 years since the Nobel Prize was awarded to the discovery of X-ray diffraction by crystals. Since then, crystallographic techniques have enabled scientists to investigate all sorts of structures—from DNA to computer components.
To recognise crystallography’s contributions to science, 2014 has been designated as the International Year of Crystallography (IYCr2014) by the United Nations. A wide range of related events have already been organised by different groups around the world, and CrystEngComm is no exception. We will be celebrating IYCr2014 with 4 themed issues highlighting crystal engineering research from around the world.
Be part of the IYCr and submit your work to the journal – articles from all areas of crystal engineering, such as crystal growth, coordination polymers and supramolecular interactions, are welcome. The deadline for the themed issues are as follows:
|India–deadline 2nd December 2013
Asia Pacific–deadline 28th January 2014
North America–deadline 18th February 2014
Europe–deadline 10th March 2014
How to submit?
All types of manuscript—communications, full papers and Highlights, will be considered for publication. The manuscript should be prepared according to our article guidelines and submitted via our online system.
All manuscripts will be subject to the normal refereeing procedure and inclusion in the themed issue will be at the discretion of the Guest Editors. Please indicate in your submission that you would like the manuscript to be considered for this themed issue.
Each themed issue is guest edited by well respected researchers based in that geographic region. They are:
India–Dr Rahul Banerjee
Asia Pacific–Professor Stuart Batten and Professor Jagadese Vittal
North America–Professor Christer Aakeröy and Professor Tomislav Friščić
Europe–Professor Dario Braga and Professor Michaele Hardie
