Focus and Coverage

Structural Dynamics focuses on recent developments in experimental and theoretical methods and techniques that explore electronic and geometric structure as well as the changes of chemical, biological, and condensed-matter systems over time. The community of scientists and engineers working on either structure or dynamics may work across diverse systems, but often share similar instrumentation and methods. Hence, the journal seeks to create connections across a variety of fields of study and also to support communications between these cultures. Structural Dynamics (SDY) is co-published by AIP Publishing and the ACA (The Structural Science Society), and it publishes articles from a global community of researchers that advance and promote crystallography and structural science.
