I do not want to publish my structure, can it still be included in the CSD?


If your structure(s) are not intended for publication, but you wish to make them available to other scientists through the CSD or ICSD then the structure(s) may be deposited as a CSD Communication or an ICSD Communication

If you are depositing data as a CSD Communication or an ICSD Communication please supply the author list that should be associated with the structure and your institutional address along with any other information on the structure that could be useful.

More information on CSD Communications is available in the Community section of the site and more information on ICSD Communciations is available from the FIZ Karlsruhe website.

Note- Depositors of CSD Communications and ICSD 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.
