The birth of IUCrData : a new era in data publication

Publié le 26 février 2016, par Thérèse Hameau

The International Union of Crystallography is delighted to announce the launch of a new open-access data publication, IUCrData. This innovative publication aims to provide short descriptions of crystallographic datasets and datasets from related scientific disciplines, as well as facilitating access to the data.

The first phase of this venture enables authors rapidly to publish brief, peer-reviewed Data Reports on individual crystal structures, making them readily available to the scientific community.


Data Reports in IUCrData include the following components :

  • a short abstract
  • an interactive 3D structure representation
  • a structure description section
  • a synthesis and crystallization section
  • relevant figures
  • tabular structural data
  • literature references.
