You will receive your CCDC numbers via email once your data has been submitted to the CCDC. Your CCDC numbers are usually sent within 3 working hours of deposition and in many cases within a few minutes.
Unless you choose to share your data through the CSD immediately as a CSD Communication your data will remain confidential until the point of publication in an associated article. It may however be made available to journal referees, on request. Please include this number as a footnote in your paper so that individual datasets may be made available upon publication.
If any of your structures are not published within one year from deposition you will be contacted by the CCDC and given the opportunity to extend the embargo period for your data. If you do not respond and neither you nor any co-author has instructed the CCDC otherwise, your structures may be added as CSD Communications at the end of your embargo period.
