Open Ceramics

Open Ceramics is an official, peer-reviewed, open access journal of the European Ceramic Society and a companion title to its well-respected publication, Journal of the European Ceramic Society.

Open Ceramics publishes the results of original research, as well as reviews and perspective articles relating to all classes of ceramic materials, from traditional to advanced ceramics, from glasses to refractories, from bioceramics to ceramic matrix composites. Research results focused on raw materials, powders, fibres, coatings, sintered components, porous or compacted bodies are all within the scope of the journal. Contributions dealing with scientific aspects or applied research and reporting experimental, theoretical and modelling approaches and new perspectives will be welcomed on a fully international basis. The emphasis is on emerging science or technological developments highlighting the relationships between processing, microstructure and properties of ceramics, glasses and other nonmetallic inorganic materials, as well as their synthesis, manufacture and applications.

The central objective of this international journal is to provide a venue for the dissemination of high quality, novel research and technological developments in ceramic and inorganic materials, targeting a wide audience ranging from academia to industry.

Open Ceramics published in 2021 contributions from researchers working in 26 different countries (Asia/Australia, Europe, Americas and Africa). A total of 74 articles were published so far, from which 30 articles in 2020. The Special Issue on "Young Ceramists in the Spotlight", organized by members of the Young Ceramists Network, contributed with 38 articles and more manuscripts in this Special Issuer currently are undergoing revision.
