I've found an entry in the CSD which either contains an error or does not correctly reflect the original publication. Who should I notify?


In excess of 50,000 structures are added annually to the Cambridge Structural Database and while every effort is made by the team of Scientific Editors to check the data against the published material and supplementary data, errors do occur. The information stored in the CSD is continually being updated and we are always pleased to receive corrections or amendments to existing CSD entries. The corrections will be carried out immediately but they will not be available to you until you receive your next CSD Portfolio release.

Please email details of any errors to: data_edits@ccdc.cam.ac.uk

Misprints in papers are corrected without reference to the author, but we will not enter into correspondence with regard to different interpretations of data. Any such comment should be carried out directly between the enquirer and the author.​
