Acta Crystallographica

Acta Crystallographica is a family of scientific journals, with peer-reviewed articles about crystallography, published by the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr). The journal was established in 1948 as a single journal called Acta Crystallographica (ISSN 0365-110X)[1] In 1967 the journal was separated into Section A and Section B, with Section C being added in 1983 and Section D being added in 1993.[2] Section E was added in 2001[3] and Section F in 2005.[4] The IUCr moved to online-only publication for all its journals from 2014.[5] Acta Crystallographica has been noted for the high quality of the papers that it produces,[6] as well as the large impact that its papers have had on the field of crystallography.[7]

Acta Crystallographica Section A: Foundations of Crystallography covers "theoretical and fundamental aspects of the structure of matter".[8] The journal is abstracted and/or indexed in a variety of scholarly bibliographic databases, including: Biological Abstracts, Current Chemical Reactions Database, Chemistry Citation Index, Chemical Abstracts, INSPEC, ISI Chemistry Reaction Center, Medline, Science Citation Index, and Scopus. After Acta Crystallographica was split into sections in 1967, section A was named Acta Crystallographica. Section A: Crystal Physics, Diffraction, Theoretical and General Crystallography, published in Denmark (ISSN 0567-7394). However, the journal's name and ISSN changed again in 1982 to its current state.[9] In 2000 Acta Crystallographica Section A began to provide electronic article submission and subscription access online[10]

Acta Crystallographica Section E: Structure Reports Online is an [14] Following the inclusion of Section C in the Crystallography Journals Online website, Section E was launched in 2001 as "the natural choice when single structures are to be reported, usually with less detailed discussion of the results (a Comment section is encouraged but not required) than would be appropriate for Section C".[3] Starting 2012, Acta Cryst. E is no longer included in the Scientific Citation Index.
