Crystal Growth & Design is a monthly peer-reviewed scientific journal published by the American Chemical Society. It was established in January 2001 as a bimonthly journal and changed to a monthly frequency in 2006. The editor-in-chief is Robin D. Rogers (McGill University).[1][2][3][4]

Aims and scope[edit]

The focus of the journal is theory and experimentation pertaining to the design, growth, and application of crystalline materials. Processes involved in achieving the various stages of development are also covered. Included in this focus is the physical, chemical, and biological properties of these materials, and how these impact the process. Fundamental research, which contributes to these areas, is also part of the scope of this journal.[5][6] The intended audience is scientists and engineers working in the fields of crystal growth, crystal engineering, and the industrial application of crystalline materials.[5][6]

Abstracing and indexing[edit]

Crystal Growth & Design is indexed in Science Citation Index, Current Contents/Physical, Chemical & Earth Sciences,[7] Scopus, EBSCOhost, and Chemical Abstracts Service/CASSI.[8]
