Keywords: crystals; editorial.

Welcome to 2014, the International Year of Crystallography! In honor of this momentous year, our traditional crystals cover (the best from 2013) takes a new form: crystal images are projected onto a solid figure. The images featured are from the following articles: Baelen et al. (2013[Baelen, S., Dewitte, F., Clantin, B. & Villeret, V. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 1322-1327.]), Bandeiras et al. (2013[Bandeiras, T. M., Freitas, M. C., Petrasch, D., Kletzin, A. & Frazão, C. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 555-558.]), Choi et al. (2013[Choi, J. M., Kang, J. H., Lee, D.-W., Kim, S. W. & Lee, S. H. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 902-905.]), Degtjarik et al. (2013[Degtjarik, O., Dopitova, R., Puehringer, S., Nejedla, E., Kuty, M., Weiss, M. S., Hejatko, J., Janda, L. & Kuta Smatanova, I. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 158-161.]), Ha et al. (2013[Ha, S., Tong, J., Yang, H., Youn, H.-S., Eom, S. H. & Im, Y. J. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 147-152.]), Haikarainen et al. (2013[Haikarainen, T., Loimaranta, V., Prieto-Lopez, C., Battula, P., Finne, J. & Papageorgiou, A. C. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 559-561.]), Huang et al. (2013[Huang, J., Wu, T., Guo, Z., Lou, T., Yu, S., Gong, W. & Ji, C. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 1436-1439.]), Iourin et al. (2013[Iourin, O., Harlos, K., El Omari, K., Lu, W., Kadlec, J., Iqbal, M., Meier, C., Palmer, A., Jones, I., Thomas, C., Brownlie, J., Grimes, J. M. & Stuart, D. I. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 35-38.]), Kikuchi et al. (2013[Kikuchi, M., Iwabuchi, S., Kikkou, T., Noguchi, K., Odaka, M., Yohda, M., Kawata, M., Sato, C. & Matsumoto, O. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 942-945.]), Li et al. (2013[Li, X., Han, X., Ko, T.-P., Chen, C.-C., Zhu, Z., Hua, E., Guo, R.-T. & Huang, C.-H. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 328-331.]), Liu et al. (2013[Liu, Q., Li, D., Hu, Y. & Wang, D.-C. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 657-659.]), Saijo-Hamano et al. (2013[Saijo-Hamano, Y., Matsunami, H., Namba, K. & Imada, K. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 547-550.]), Sartmatova et al. (2013[Sartmatova, D., Nash, T., Schormann, N., Nuth, M., Ricciardi, R., Banerjee, S. & Chattopadhyay, D. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 295-301.]), Shan et al. (2013[Shan, X., Sun, W., Fan, H., Jia, M., Gao, F. & Gong, W. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 69-72.]), Squeglia et al. (2013[Squeglia, F., Bachert, B., Romano, M., Lukomski, S. & Berisio, R. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 1023-1025.]), Trastoy et al. (2013[Trastoy, B., Lomino, J. V., Wang, L.-X. & Sundberg, E. J. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 1405-1410.]) and Vengadesan et al. (2013[Vengadesan, K., Macon, K., Sugumoto, S., Mizunoe, Y., Iwase, T. & Narayana, S. V. L. (2013). Acta Cryst. F69, 49-52.]).

Also, in honor of the International Year of Crystallography, Acta Crystallographica Section F will be publishing a series of articles on the state of the art of macromolecular crystallization. The series begins in this issue with an introductory article written by Drs Alexander McPherson and Jose Gavira. Throughout 2014 and into 2015 one article per month will be published on important aspects of crystallization.

You will note that the Editorial Board includes a new Section Editor, Professor William Hunter of the University of Dundee. His fellow editors welcome him to the team and look forward to working with him.

Finally, we would all like to thank to our authors, Co-editors, reviewers (especially our review panel) and the editorial staff in Chester for all their hard work during 2013.
