We are making some exciting alterations to Acta A to reflect the changing landscape of materials-structure research and emerging developments in the field. The subtitle will change from Foundations of Crystallography to Foundations and Advances, and a new Advances section will be created to accommodate articles describing original research of high potential impact. Manuscripts in this section will be 'fast-tracked', and certain of these will be promoted to a wider audience using commissioned viewpoint articles and press releases. Furthermore, Advances review articles will be invited, capturing the state of play in an emerging area of structure science.
