The CCDC allows you to publish data directly through the CSD as a CSD Communication. Over 5,000 structures were published in this way in 2016 making CSD Communications the No. 1 place to publish crystal structures.
Depositions where no associated scientific article is envisaged but that the depositor would like to share through the CSD are referred to as CSD Communications (formerly Private Communications to the Cambridge Structural Database (CSD) and will contain the author list supplied by the depositor. This may include new data collections of structures that have been previously published or structures with disorder or data collection problems that result in lower quality refinement statistics.

Depositors of CSD 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.
