When is inorganic data deposited at the CCDC transferred to the ICSD?
Inorganic data is copied to FIZ Karlsruhe for inclusion into the ICSD at the point of publication. Once published, the data will become accessible through the joint Access Structures Service and will also be copied to FIZ Karlsruhe. Since FIZ Karlsruhe perform a data update for the ICSD twice yearly, the data will be placed into a queue to be included in the next appropriate release of the ICSD. This means that ICSD numbers assigned by FIZ Karlsruhe will not be immediately searchable through Access Structures.
