Acta Crystallographica Section F: Structural Biology Communications is a rapid all-electronic journal, which provides a home for short communications on the crystallization and structure of biological macromolecules. Structures determined through structural genomics initiatives or from iterative studies such as those used in the pharmaceutical industry are particularly welcomed.

Articles are available online when ready, making publication as fast as possible, and include unlimited free colour illustrations, movies and other enhancements. The editorial process is completely electronic with respect to deposition, submission, refereeing and publication.

Workshop on Standards for Publication of Macromolecular NMR Structures

`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.
