Acta Crystallographica Section F is a rapid structural biology communications journal.

Articles on any aspect of structural biology, including structures determined using high-throughput methods or from iterative studies such as those used in the pharmaceutical industry, are welcomed by the journal.

The journal offers the option of open access, and all communications benefit from unlimited free use of colour illustrations and no page charges. Authors are encouraged to submit multimedia content for publication with their articles.

Acta Cryst. F has a dedicated online tool called publBio that is designed to make the preparation and submission of articles easier for authors.

Workshop on Standards for Publication of Macromolecular NMR Structures

At the 2014 IUCr Congress it was decided to improve the scientific quality of those articles published in Acta Cryst. F that relate to the crystallization of biological macromolecules. For an article to be accepted for publication it should describe more than just the routine crystallization of a macromolecule. Articles describing novel aspects of the crystallization procedure together with new science will be welcomed by the journal, and from 2015 all articles will be published in the category Research Communications. This enhancement should make the articles more relevant and useful to the structural biology community as a whole, and an editorial with further details will be published in the near future.

`Acta is intended to offer a central place for publication and discussion of all research in this vast and ever-expanding field. It borders, naturally, on pure physics, chemistry, biology, mineralogy, technology and also on mathematics, but is distinguished by being concerned with the methods and results of investigating the arrangement of atoms in matter, particularly when that arrangement has regular features.'

Paul P. Ewald, Acta Crystallographica (1948), 1, 2.
