the Journal of the American Ceramic Society is a monthly peer reviewed, scientific journal published on behalf of the American Ceramic Society by Wiley-Blackwell. It was established in 1918 and is co-edited by David J. Green, John Halloran, David W. Johnson Jr, and Lisa Klein. Publishing formats included full length original research, communications (rapid publishing), feature articles (invited-in-depth), and review articles (invited). According to WorldCat the journal is alternately identified by Journal and Ceramic Abstracts, or Communications of the American Ceramic Society. Moreover, Journal of the American Ceramic Society supersedes Transactions of the American Ceramic Society and has absorbed Advanced Ceramic Materials. The focus of The Journal of the American Ceramic Society is original research in the discipline of ceramic-materials-science. Broad topical coverage includes microstructure, microscopy, glass science, chemistry of crystals, bioceramic science, colloidal science, and powder processing. Original research topics include fundamental research in the science of ceramics, and ceramic based composites. This journal is indexed in the following databases, among others:

A path to the future, paved with ceramics

When you hear the word "ceramics," you may think of the mug you made in pottery class or the vases collecting dust on your grandmother's shelf. While these objects are made up of ceramics, they're only one small part of the ...

Cementless fly ash binder makes concrete 'green'

Rice University engineers have developed a composite binder made primarily of fly ash, a byproduct of coal-fired power plants, that can replace Portland cement in concrete.

Taking concrete steps toward lower carbon dioxide emissions

The hardest thing about concrete just might be the problem of how to make the ubiquitous building material in an environmentally friendly manner. Recent laboratory results at Princeton University indicate that the challenge ...

Researchers develop eco-friendly concrete

In the future, wide-ranging composite materials are expected to be stronger, lighter, cheaper and greener for our planet, thanks to an invention by Rutgers' Richard E. Riman.

How defects influence efficiency in concrete manufacture 

Because concrete, the world's most-used construction material, is such a major contributor to climate change, it's worth knowing every detail about how it's manufactured, according to Rice University scientists.
