Aims & Scope


New Journal of Glass and Ceramics (NJGC) is an international, specialized, English-language journal devoted to publication of original contributions concerning all branches of glass and ceramics, their properties and applications. It is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal describing scientific and technological advances that cover the basic sciences, engineering aspects and applied technology of glass and ceramics as bulk and films.


The journal publishes the highest quality original full articles, communications, notes, reviews, special issues and books, covering both the experimental and theoretical aspects including but not limited to the following materials, techniques and studies:


  • · Aerogels
  • · Automotive Glasses
  • · Bioceramics
  • · Bioglass
  • · Cements and Concrete
  • · Ceramic and Glass Powders
  • · Ceramic Composites
  • · Coatings Process
  • · Crystallization in Glass
  • · Decorative Glasses
  • · Glass Fibers
  • · Glass Polymers
  • · Low-softening Temperature Glasses
  • · Nanoglass
  • · New Inorganic Glasses
  • · Organic-inorganic Glasses
  • · Powder Preparation and Colloidal Sciences
  • · Refractories and Industrial Glasses and Ceramics
  • · Sol-gel Glasses

  • With applications in: nanotechnology, optics, photonics, biomedical, biomaterials for implants and prosthesis, dentistry, environment, energy, thermal insulation, materials reinforcement, architectural restoration.


    Contributions to fundamental and basic sciences of glass and ceramics research will be highlighted.

    These concerns among others the properties and the characterization of glasses: glass structures studies, diffusion and kinetics in glasses, phase studies, thermodynamics, mechanical, thermal stability, salvation, surface properties, porosity, electrical, thermal, optical, magnetic and conductivity properties.

    These concern also the theoretical aspect of the science of glass and ceramics with structure-properties relationship including modeling approaches, mechanisms. Manuscripts dealing with the technical aspect including the development of innovating tools for materials processes and productions as well as the characterization techniques of the materials are welcome.

    Papers are acceptable provided they report important findings, novel insights or useful techniques within the scope of the journal. All manuscript must be prepared in English, and are subjected to a rigorous and fair peer-review process. Generally, accepted papers will appear online within 3 weeks followed by printed hard copy. It will be available through http://www.scirp.org/journal/njgc.
