Glass Physics and Chemistry (Fizika i Khimiya Stekla) is published bimonthly by the Russian Academy of Sciences and the Institute of Silicate Chemistry. Established in 1975, this journal presents results of structural, physical, and chemical properties in inorganic materials (glasses, ceramics, nanoparticles, nanocomposites, high temperature oxides and coatings) and phase equilibrium in inorganic system by Russian and foreign authors.

Now published concurrently in English translation, the journal widens its availability to a worldwide community of glass scientists.
