Author Guidelines

Ceramics-Silikáty publishes articles dealing with the chemistry and physics of ceramics, glass, and other inorganic non-metallic materials. Submitted manuscripts should bring original results of scientific value regarding materials synthesis or processing, characterization, physical and chemical properties, application, or practically motivated modeling of these aspects. Reviews and theoretical papers with practical impact may be considered as well. However, reports with purely technological impact (e.g. laboratory reports or company R&D results with secret material composition) will not be considered.
Published articles are freely accessible and can be used for non-commercial purposes. Commercial use is not permitted unless explicitly agreed in writing by the editorial of Ceramics-Silikáty.
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 is not acceptable. When submitting a paper to Ceramics-Silikáty, authors are expected to agree with this guideline.
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.
Original papers and Review papers are published. Both contributions should contain an Abstract and a Conclusions section which, particularly in the case of theoretical papers, translates the results into terms accessible to non-expert readers.
Abstract: The abstract should not exceed 200 words and should not be subdivided into paragraphs. It should contain the most important, essential findings of the paper in a condensed form. Do not use undefined abbreviations and do not cite literature references in the abstract.
Keywords: Authors should propose 3 to 8 keywords suitable for literature databases. Keywords should be preferentially chosen in such a way that redundancy with the title words is avoided. For example, if the title contains the word "porosity", the keywords need not contain this word, but could contain the word "porous".
Abbreviations: All abbreviations should be explained upon first appearance in the text and, once introduced, should be consequently used throughout the text.
Text: The manuscript text, including tables and figures, should be submitted with the usual line spacing 1 (not 2) as a single editable MS Word file with page numbers centered on the bottom of each page.
Figures and Tables should be included in the editable MS Word manuscript file and placed next to the relevant text in the manuscript, rather than at the bottom or the top of the file. Tables should be submitted as editable text tables, not as images. Preferred file types for figures are TIFF (JPG), EPS (PDF) and MS Office files. The minimal TIFF resolution is 300 dpi. All figures and graphs are printed in black and white reproduction. Color reproduction is possible only in the electronic version.
Acknowledgements should be situated in a separate section at the end of the article before the References.
References should be marked in the text with the numbers in square brackets, e.g. [1] or McAdams [2]. If the reference is assigned with DOI (Digital Object Identifier), include it at the end of the record. Please use the following examples to format references.

Please submit the manuscript via on-line submission system at: https://ojs.irsm.cas.cz/index.php/ceramics-silikaty. The system guides you through the process of entering your article details and uploading your files. Submitted editable article Word files are converted to a single PDF file used in the peer-review process. All correspondence, including notification of the Editor’s decision and requests for revision, is sent by e-mail.
Upon acceptance of an article, the corresponding author will be asked in behalf of all authors to sign "Journal Publishing Agreement and Copyright Assignment" form.
The processing fee of 480 EUR is payable before publication when the article is accepted after peer-review and possible revision.
Authors are expected to consider carefully the list and order of authors before submitting their manuscript and provide the definitive list of authors at the time of the original submission. Any addition, deletion or rearrangement of author names in the authorship list should be made only before the manuscript has been accepted and only if approved by the journal Editor. To request such a change, the Editor must receive the following from the corresponding author: (a) the reason for the change in author list and (b) written confirmation (e-mail, letter) from all authors that they agree with the addition, removal or rearrangement. In the case of addition or removal of authors, this includes confirmation from the author being added or removed. Only in exceptional circumstances will the Editor consider the addition, deletion or rearrangement of authors after the manuscript has been accepted.
