Crystallography Reports, a Journal of the Russian Academy of Science, formerly Soviet Physics Crystallography, covers an exceptionally wide range of crystal and diffraction physics and includes contributions on theory and application of atomic and molecular structure, phase transitions, elastic, optical, magnetic, acoustical, and electrical properties of matter in the solid state, liquid crystals, crystal and epitaxial growth, temperature dependence of cell dimensions, and point defects. This richly illustrated journal deserves wider distribution and attention and would benefit from additionalsupport from the entire crystallographic community. Submission of manuscripts by crystallographers working outside Russia would produce a truly international journal and improve access to international research results by Russian scientists.
