|Ceramics-Silikaty is an open-access journal providing a publication forum for original research related to glass, ceramics and non-metallic materials. Both theoretical and experimental papers will be welcomed on a fully international basis, but all papers must be written in acceptable English (either British or US, but not a mixture of these two).
Published papers are freely available on the journal webpage. Users are allowed to search, read, download, copy and print the full texts of the articles in the journal without asking prior permission from the publisher or the author. The commercial distribution of electronic copies is not allowed.
The journal Ceramics-Silikáty requires authors to follow the Ethics in Publishing Policies common in other impacted materials science journals. In particular, plagiarism and duplicate submission are not acceptable. Submitted manuscripts are verified by iThenticate plagiarism detection software. The corresponding author, on behalf of all co-authors, is requested to disclose any conflict of interest that could inappropriately influence the submitted work. All funding sources have to be mentioned in the Acknowledgement.
Submitted manuscripts undergo an editorial pre-review, in which clearly unacceptable papers may be preselected beforehand within a short time, followed by the journal's standard peer-review process, after which they may be accepted (usually after minor or major revision) or rejected based on the opinion of two reviewers. Authors grant the journal full copyright and the exclusive license to publish the article. The journal is thus the original and exclusive publisher of this article.
The processing fee of 520 EUR is payable after acceptance of the manuscript for publication. Payment details are given in the section Processing Fee.
