How CSD Licences Work

Licence Agreement

About CSD Licences

A licence allows you to use the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) data and software in your research.

We offer a range of data and software to support molecular discovery, materials design, and crystallography research. This includes open source, free, and paid software.

CSD licences are available for academic universities and research institutions, government organizations, and commercial companies. The exact licence terms and what tools are included depend on the licence type. We can help advise you what licence is best for your needs.
