The CCDC allows you to publish data directly through the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) as a CSD Communication. Over 4,000 structures were published in this way in 2018 making CSD Communications the No. 1 place to publish crystal structures last year.
Depositions where no associated scientific article is envisaged but that the depositor would like to share through the CSD are referred to as CSD Communications (formerly known as Private Communications) and will contain the author list supplied by the depositor. For recommendations on who should be included as an author please see our CIF Deposition Guidelines.
These resources present how to publish your data as CSD Communications and how to manage your structures via the My Structures portal.
Benefits of sharing data as a CSD Communication include the following:
Depositors of CSD Communications should be aware that a few journals will not accept papers which contain data that have previously been published in any form, including electronic publication on web pages or in a distributed database.
