Powder Diffraction Journal
Journal of Materials Characterization
Practical techniques • Published articles relating to applications • Latest advances in software
Powder Diffraction is a quarterly journal published by the JCPDS-International Centre for Diffraction Data through the Cambridge University Press. The journal focuses on practical technique, publishing articles relating to the widest range of application—from materials analysis to epitaxial growth of thin films and to the latest advances in software. Although practice is emphasized, theory is not neglected, especially as its discussion relates to better understanding of technique.
Cambridge University Press publishes over 280 peer-reviewed academic journals in a wide variety of subject areas. They have over 50 offices across the globe and publish over 40,000 titles by authors from over 100 countries.
Abstracts, Editorials, and International Reports from Powder Diffraction Journal are available online free of charge at Cambridge Core. A subscription is necessary for more data. Authors, subjects and page numbers are listed in the Past Issue Pages.
On the Cover June (34-2):
This issue contains two papers on full pattern XRD analysis of high volume prescription drugs. The Technical Article “Formulation Analyses of High Volume Prescription Drugs” summarizes the methods and knowledge gained from several years of analysis of a large fraction of the high volume prescription drugs on the market. The second, based on the experience gained in the first paper, is the Review Article “A Practical Guide to Pharmaceutical Analyses using X-ray Powder Diffraction”. These two papers describe the methods, data processing and use of the Powder Diffraction File’s combination of crystalline, nanocrystalline and amorphous reference patterns along with full pattern fitting to obtain exceptional phase identification of both the Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) and the excipients used in the formulations. Often the proper identification of the nanocrystalline or amorphous excipients was key in then identifying the API.
The two papers are “Formulation Analyses of High Volume Prescription Drugs” and “A Practical Guide to Pharmaceutical Analyses using X-ray Powder Diffraction” by T. Fawcett, S. Gates-Rector, A. Gindhart, M. Rost, S. Kabekkodu, J. Blanton and T. Blanton.
The Cover Figure shows a cluster analysis (top left) of the dominant excipients present in the XRD analyses of 65 formulated pharmaceutical diffraction patterns. The bottom two figures show stacked plots of the raw data for all the patterns falling into two of the clusters. The top right figure shows the XRD analysis of one of the formulated pharmaceutical diffraction patterns and the results of phase identification of β-lactose (blue), celluose Iβ (green) and the API Invokana®

ICDD’s international journal, Powder Diffraction, published quarterly plus an annual special topical issue, in collaboration with the Denver X-ray Conference Organizing Committee, has increased services for the subscribers of Powder Diffraction and authors of Advances in X-ray Analysis (AXA). Beginning in 2006, ICDD offered access to of the previous year’s edition of AXA to Powder Diffraction institutional print/online subscribers. This effectively doubles the number of articles annually available to Powder Diffraction subscribers and significantly increases the circulation for the authors in Advances in X-ray Analysis.
Subject coverage includes:
- Techniques and procedures in X-ray powder diffractometry
- Advances in instrumentation
- Study of materials including organic materials, minerals, metals and thin film superconductors
- Publication of powder data on new materials

Powder Diffraction is presently available online at Cambridge Core. Since initial implementation there has been a steady increase in online subscription readership. This has occurred because of the participation of Powder Diffraction in a number of large publishing consortia. By contract, these consortia provide access to a large number of users solely by online access. The web site is also visited thousands of times per month by non-subscribers who view the contents and abstracts. Cambridge University Press offers several online slots for banners in addition to print ads.
