The Cambridge Crystallographic Data Centre (CCDC) and FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure (FIZ Karlsruhe) today announced the launch of their joint deposition and access services for crystallographic data across all chemistry. These services will enable researchers to share data through a single deposition portal and explore all chemical structures for free worldwide.
“With this joint depot, FIZ Karlsruhe supports the community’s need for a reliable infrastructure for research data from crystallography.” says Sabine Brünger-Weilandt, CEO from FIZ Karlsruhe. “Providing freely available research data for all chemistry is in line with our claim to Advancing Science. The announcement of the cooperation between CCDC and FIZ Karlsruhe was already enthusiastically received by the community. We are convinced that we can meet the high expectations with the new joint depot.”
The Chair of Trustees for the CCDC is equally excited about the impact of this launch to researchers worldwide: “All information users, whether they admit it or not, wish that all of the information that they require was in a single location. Failing that, they are searching for a “magic bullet” that will hit exactly what they want; they want to be able to use a simple interface and locate all of their information needs. By unifying the deposition and access of organic, metal-organic, and inorganic crystal structures we get a little closer to that magic bullet, at least in the area of crystallography, and make researchers’ lives that much easier.” says Judith Currano, Chair of Trustees for the CCDC and Head of the Chemistry Library at the University of Pennsylvania (…).
