Aims & Scope


Journal of Crystallization Process and Technology (JCPT) is an international, specialized, English-language journal devoted to publication of original contributions concerning with the crystallization process, studies and properties of the crystalline materials. It covers the basic sciences, engineering aspects and applied technology of crystals and crystallization processes, both the experimental and theoretical aspects including physical, chemical, and biological phenomena and processes related to the design, growth, and application of crystalline materials. The journal publishes original papers including but not limited to the following fields:


  • · Apparatus, Instrumentation and Techniques for Crystal Growth, and Purification Methods
  • · Biological Substances Crystallization
  • · Biomineralization
  • · Characterization by Physical and Chemical Methods
  • · Characterization of single crystals
  • · Crystal growth of metals
  • · Crystal growth of minerals
  • · Crystal growth of semiconductors
  • · Crystal growth of superconductors
  • · Crystallization as Bulk or Thin Films
  • · Crystallization in glasses
  • · Crystallization in Polymers, Liquid Crystals Crystallization in Sol-Gel Glasses and Viscous Media
  • · Crystallization Processes Including among Others Chemical Vapor Deposition, Hydrothermal, Organic, Solvent and Solvent-Free Processes
  • · Crystals Growth, Design and Properties for Applications in Medical Sciences with Organic
  • · Directional growing
  • · Intermolecular Interactions in the Solid State
  • · Modeling of Crystal Growth Processes
  • · Nucleation Theory
  • · Opto-Electronics with Semiconductors, Superconductors, Magnetics, Inorganic Inorhanic-Organic Hybrid Materials Crystallization
  • · Purification methods
  • · Transport Phenomena in Crystal Growth

  • We are also interested in: 

    1) Short Reports – 2-5 page papers where an author can either present an idea with theoretical background but has not yet completed the research needed for a complete paper or preliminary data; 

    2) Book Reviews – Comments and critiques.
