Papers about crystallography in Priroda magazine - II

Priroda is an educational (popular science) journal which has been published by Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) since 1912 ("priroda" in Russian means "nature"). Its contributors are researchers in various fields (astronomy, physics, chemistry, biology and so on) who tell readers about actual problems in their area and their own results, adopting a language for non-professional audience.

The pursuance of IYCr in 2014 has been highlighted by inviting some scientists to contribute articles about the history of crystallography research and new results obtained by traditional and new methods.
