Professor Alajos Kálmán passed away on 26th December 2017.

He was one of the most prominent scientists in crystallography of our time. He was a most productive, widely respected, much-admired and inspiring scientific leader. We recall him as an enthusiastic and entertaining head, colleague, teacher and friend who loved crystallography and made a huge contribution to it. We treasure our memories with him. He will be missed by the crystallographic community. Biography    

Petra Bombicz is appointed to be the Editor-in-Chief of Crystallography Reviews from 1st January 2018.

Crystallography Reviews publishes English language reviews on topics in crystallography and crystal growth, covering all theoretical and applied aspects of biological, chemical, industrial, mineralogical and physical crystallography. The intended readership is the crystallographic community at large, as well as scientists working in related fields of interest.        

The group received an OTKA grant
