Advanced Ceramics Progress (ACERP) is an international peer-reviewed scientific journal devoted to the latest advancement of science whose aim is the publication of high quality original researches in the fields of ceramic materials science and engineering, including theoretical, observational and applicative research such as aspects of chemistry and physics occurring at a wide range of oxides, non-oxides, composites, and nano-materials and their processing, microstructure, properties, and applications, as well as interdisciplinary areas of science and technology. The types of contributions specifically include: original research reporting important theoretical, experimental or applicative results able to give a significant contribution to science in the above topics; presentation of novel theories supporting or contrasting the existing ones; critical review about recent discoveries or scientific results in the pertinent fields. The journal also publishes topically selected special issues in research fields of particular scientific interest. These consist of both invited reviews and original research articles. All submitted manuscripts are subject to initial appraisal by the Editor and if found suitable for further consideration, to peer review by independent, anonymous expert referees.
The ACERP considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that
This journal will publish authoritative articles on theoretical and experimental researches and advanced applications embodying the results of extensive field, plant, laboratory or theoretical investigation or new interpretations of existing problems on ceramic materials science and engineering. It may also feature-when appropriate-research notes, technical notes, state-of-the-art survey type articles, short communications, letters to the editor, meeting schedules and conference announcements. The language of publication is English. Each article should contain an abstract in English. The abstracts should not exceed 250 words.
All manuscripts will be initially checked for plagiarism and then peer-reviewed by qualified reviewers. The material should be presented clearly and concisely:
The length of a research or technical note is recommended to be preferable between 3,000 and 4,000 words (not to exceed 4-6 journal pages) including figures and tables.
