Open Access Crystallography Journals

A list of Open Access Crystallography journals for you to publish your manuscript in

Crystallography is study of crystals

All articles published in Open Access journals have undergone peer review and upon acceptance are immediately and permanently free for everyone to read and download.

Hopefully this list of Crystallography Open Access journals will make it easier for you to decide where to publish your Crystallography manuscript.
Our list includes all the high-impact factor Crystallography journals that may be relevant to your field of study. In any case, we've also included other journals that may also offer more affordable publishing fees.Instead of displaying the most commonly known Crystallography journals, we have made an exhaustive list of open accesss Crystallography journals. Use our different columns — number of papers, number of citations, and relevance — to find the best Crystallography venue for your manuscript.

The DOAJ columns refers to the The Directory of Open Access Journals, a list of open access journals, maintained by Infrastructure Services for Open Access.
There are certain criteria a journal must meet to be indexed by DOAJ, and thus inclusion in the DOAJ index is seen by scholars as a mark of quality.

All the open access Crystallography journals in this list are indexed in

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Open Access (OA)?
Open Access refers to free access to information and unrestricted use of electronic resources for everyone. Any kind of digital content can be open access, from texts and data to software, audio, and video.
What does “relevance” mean in the table?
If a journal has a relevance of “100”, that means that the journal is fully related to the concept it is listed under. If, on the other hand, a journal has a relevance of “0”, that means that the journal doesn’t have any relation to the topic it is listed under. So Nutrition might have a low relevance when included in Open Computer Science Journals
How do you count total number of citations?
The citations demonstrate how frequently publications from this journal are cited in other papers. We obtain this information via OpenAlex. Although the accuracy is questionable, it might nevertheless aid you in gaining an understanding of how prestigious a publication is overall.
Where can I find other lists like this one?
If you are looking for an author or journal article, you can type it in the name, title, or DOI in the search box above to see more results. If you want to see a similar list to this one, take a look on
How can I publish my paper on
That's exactly why we made these lists, so you can find a journal that will publish your paper. We at don't offer publishing services.
What is an APC?
Authors usually have to pay a one-time Article Processing Charge (APC) to cover the costs of peer review, publishing, and dissemination of published papers in a given journal.
What are the different Open Access types?
Depending on the license, a research paper might be categorised as a) Gold Open Access, which means the paper is freely available and fully accessible to everyone, b) Hybrid Open Access, which means that the authors can pay an APC to make the paper freely available, or c) Green Open Access, which means that there is a possiblity to make subcription based journal articles freely avaiable by uploading the peer-reviewed article to an instiutional repository. Among these, Diamond, Black, and Bronze Open Access also exist.
