Call for International Collaborative papers
July 01, 2016     From: Journal of the Ceramic Society of Japan
According to empirical analysis on factors associated with international scientific collaboration (M. Kato, A. Ando, Discussion paper No.95, MEXT, 2013), the number of academic papers has been increasing more slowly in Japan than in other leading nations. One of the reasons may be the low ratio of international collaborative articles in Japan, which tend to have more citations than those written by domestic groups. Moreover, the analysis showed positive correlations between research performance and the degree of international collaboration. Therefore, the Journal of the Ceramic Society of Japan will start a campaign in 2016 in order to promote international scientific collaboration in the field of ceramic science and technology. During the campaign, submission of international co-authored papers will be encouraged. Especially, excellent articles collaboratively written by Japanese research group(s) and non-Japanese group(s) are invited to the Journal of the Ceramic Society of Japan. The international collaborative articles will be published in the open-access journal free of charge.

Campaign period: From May 2016 to December 2017 for submission
