New functionality now available to depositors
October 26, 2017
We are delighted to announce that this week we have added some new functionality to our deposition services. Depositors are now able to link to raw data files and provide crystallographer details during deposition as well as revise their data more easily.

These changes should ensure the revised data is made available more rapidly, and enables the depositor to see more information about their data prior to revision. As many journal publishers use the CCDC’s services to access crystallographic data pre-publication we hope these improvements will help improve the publication experience for our depositors. All of this new functionality is available through the deposition process ( /deposit) as well as through the My Structures service which we launched last year which allows depositors to view, update and share their depositions. We would love to hear about your experiences using this new functionality and how you would like our deposition services to develop and what your priorities and requirements are. If you have any comments or suggestions please send an email to: We also have a number of FAQs on our support pages to help answer any questions you may have. Thank you once again for all your valued depositions; collectively through the CSD you have already shared over 915,000 structures.
