IUCrJ is a new fully open-access peer-reviewed journal from the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr).

The journal will publish high-profile articles on all aspects of the sciences and technologies supported by the IUCr via its commissions, including emerging fields where structural results underpin the science reported in the article. Our aim is to make IUCrJ the natural home for high-quality structural science results. Chemists, biologists, physicists and material scientists will be actively encouraged to report their structural studies in IUCrJ.

IUCrJ covers five broad areas:

The journal has been launched to commemorate the International Year of Crystallography.

Charge-carrier redistribution invoked by enhanced electronic polarization of the As ion was observed in the superconducting phase of iron arsenide.
...
The complete structural transformation of ionic species in the precursor solution, over an amorphous solid and finally into crystalline nanoparticles, is elucidated by in situ investigations under supercritical solvothermal conditions.
...
The method of rotational X-ray tracking is used to probe the microradian rotational motion of individual crystalline colloids in a colloidal gel to determine the viscous and elastic properties.
...
The dual role of the Protein Data Bank as a repository of all macromolecular structures and as the major source of structural metadata for further analysis is discussed and suggestions are made on how to identify models that contain errors and could potentially degrade the quality of meta analyses.
...
A method to map spin-resolved electron distribution from combined polarized neutron and X-ray diffraction is described and applied for the first time to a molecular magnet and it is shown that spin up density is 5% more contracted than spin down density.
...
A brief history is given of how X-ray diffraction data from crystals have been recorded. Today there are new possibilities, spawned by the availability of free electron lasers that produce powerful femtosecond long X-ray pulses.
...
The plant purple acid phosphatase PPD1 forms a novel hexameric structure with a fibronectin III-like domain that is involved in DNA selectivity, binding and activation. The degradation of DNA by PPD1 implies a role for PPD1 in plant growth and repair and in pathogen defence.
...
Multi-temperature single-crystal and powder diffraction experiments on 1-(2'-aminophenyl)-2-methyl-4-nitroimidazole show that this crystal undergoes an isomorphic phase transition with the coexistence of two phase domains over a wide temperature range. The anharmonic approach was the only way to model the resulting disorder.
...
An enrichment ratio is derived from the decomposition of the crystal contact surface between pairs of interacting chemical species. The propensity of different contact types to form is investigated.
