Happy New Year! This is our ninth January issue and, as usual, its cover image is a collection of crystals taken from Acta Cryst. F articles published in the year just passed. We feel that this appropriately highlights our continuing commitment to the scientists who work on crystallization of macromolecules.

The images featured this year are from the following articles: Ullah et al. (2012[Ullah, A., de Souza, T. A. C. B., Masood, R., Murakami, M. T. & Arni, R. K. (2012). Acta Cryst. F68, 1222-1225.]), Guo et al. (2012[Guo, L., Okai, M., Mase, T., Imai, F. L., Miyakawa, T., Nagata, K., Yamanaka, H., Fujii, H., Hibi, M., Ogawa, J. & Tanokura, M. (2012). Acta Cryst. F68, 958-961.]), Bunker et al. (2012[Bunker, R. D., Loomes, K. M. & Baker, E. N. (2012). Acta Cryst. F68, 59-62.]), Zhang et al. (2012[Zhang, F., Xing, L., Teng, M. & Li, X. (2012). Acta Cryst.

The popularity of these annual cover images as posters and postcards continues to grow and the complete set of our January cover cards is now an impressive collection. At your next crystallography meeting or workshop why not call at the IUCr Journals display and see for yourself. Be prepared for crowds during coffee breaks!

We would also like to let you know that a completely new version of publBio has recently been introduced. This new and innovative tool guides authors through the processs of writing and submitting an article for Acta F, making it easy for beginners and more experienced authors alike. The tool has been featured at special IUCr lunchtime seminar presentations at the German Crystallographic Society Meeting in Munich, Germany and the ACA meeting in Boston, USA. Check out http://publbio.iucr.org for more details on this exciting new tool.
