“Springer and Tsinghua University Press will jointly publish the new SpringerOpen journal Journal of Advanced Ceramics (JAC). This new international journal is the only English-language ceramics journal based in China, fully sponsored by the State Key Laboratory of New Ceramics and Fine Processing at Tsinghua University. Articles are now available online on www.springerlink.com . JAC is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to the timely publication of new results and significant findings of theoretical and experimental studies related to the structure, processing, properties and applications of advanced ceramics and ceramic-based composites. The journal publishes research papers, rapid communications and review articles, which are submitted by scientists from the international research community. It is edited by a distinguished editorial board headed by Professor Longtu Li from the Chinese Academy of Engineering and is supported by an international advisory board made up of accomplished ceramics scientists. ‘Materials science is a fast-developing and highly interdisciplinary field. Advanced ceramics have wide applications and therefore this is a hot research area worldwide. With the strong support from Tsinghua University as well as both domestic and international researchers, we are confident that this journal will be another successful China based international journal. It will join Springer's Chinese Library of Science, a collection of about 90 high-quality, English-language research journals from China,’ said Lu Ye, Editorial Director China, at Springer's Beijing Office... The State Key Laboratory of New Ceramics and Fine Processing (SKL-NCFP) at Tsinghua University is devoted to the development of the science and technology of advanced ceramics and to the exploration of the frontiers in the area of materials science. The lab received 29 awards from different ministries of China, including two Second-Class Awards of National Natural Science and five Second-Class National Invention Awards.
