Here is a quick reference to help you determine which ACerS journal is right for your manuscript. When your manuscript falls outside the scope of a journal, our editors help you get published quickly by referring your manuscript to the ACerS journal that fits it best.

Our journals editors assemble articles surrounding issues and meetings into Topical Collections and Conference Collections.  In 2024, the Journals team is collaborating with the Bulletin team to bring you a series of collections on Sustainability Issues in Ceramics and Glass.

 IJCES going strong

Indexed in the Directory of Open Access Journals, International Journal of Ceramic Engineering and Science, the ACerS journal for ceramics and glass research at all levels, is publishing its fourth volume. Designed to be inclusive and supportive of authors and readers around the globe, IJCES is a ideal for reporting research on traditional ceramics (whiteware, refractories, clay, etc.) through advanced ceramics, glass and composite materials, processes and systems for any application or industry.  Researchers from industry, academia, national labs, and more are welcome to submit manuscripts that report forward-looking perspectives, conference presentations, nascent ideas for research/grants, incremental changes, process improvements, pedagogy advances, and more up to and including rigorous research findings on complex systems.

Helping Authors Get Published
