About JCS -Introduction

The Journal of the Ceramic Society of Japan (JCS-Japan) is a monthly academic journal published on the 1st day of each month by the Ceramic Society of Japan, a public interest corporation..
JCS-Japan initiated publication in 1892 as the “Journal of the Dai-Nippon Ceramics Society”. Although its name has been changed several times during its long history of over a century, it has continued to specialize in the publication of materials related to the science and technology of ceramics. It is the only journal of this kind in Japan.
Since 2003 the entire contents of the Journal have been published on J-STAGE, since 2008 all the contents have been in English, and since 2005 contributions have been accepted from non-members. As a result, the contents now include many contributions from overseas, primarily from other Asian countries.
