Acta Crystallographica Section E: Crystallographic Communications is the IUCr's open-access structural communications journal. It provides a fast, simple and easily accessible publication mechanism for crystal structure determinations of inorganic, metal-organic and organic compounds. The electronic submission, validation, refereeing and publication facilities of the journal ensure rapid and high-quality publication. Section E publishes two categories of articles, Research Communications and Data Reports, both of which are peer reviewed. Each publication consists of a complete package – the published article, HTML and PDF supplements, CIF, structure factors, graphics, and any other submitted supporting information. Research Communications are longer articles describing one or more structure determinations with appropriate discussion of the science. Data Reports are extended abstracts reporting individual structure determinations with comments on the chemical significance of the structure.

Research communications

The first papers in this new format were published in July 2014. Research communications are longer papers with new text sections designed to help authors bring out the science behind their structure determinations. Figures are included in the published paper and, for the first time in Acta E, individual reports are not limited to single structure determinations. The Research communications format will make Acta E the natural home for structure determinations with interesting science to report.

Journal news

Acta E is now included in the Thomson Reuters Emerging Sources Citation Index.
