The changeover was almost invisible from our perspective in the Database Group (courtesy of the CCDC’s wonderful Database Group Development Team). More importantly, it didn’t cause any problems at all to our Users and Depositors, either. If anyone has any questions regarding the new 7-digit CCDC number please let me re-assure you – the new numbers work exactly the same as the old ones when searching in ConQuest or WebCSD (as you can see in the picture above) and for retrieving data via our ‘Get Structures’ service, accessible from our Home Page: www.ccdc.cam.ac.uk so please continue publishing CCDC numbers in your forthcoming papers as normal.
If you ever need to revise your previously deposited structure don’t forget to quote the original CCDC number when you send us the updated information. Remember, it’s now easier than ever to get your data to us; you can deposit CIFs and structure factor files, and review and enhance your data, using our new improved Web Deposition Form, also accessible from our Home Page. We’ll give you a new, 7-digit CCDC number as soon as possible!
