About the Validation Interface
This interface allows you to upload, validate and edit CIF files
before submitting them for deposition.
The process of file deposition is pretty straightforward:
Upload. The selected files are uploaded to the server;
Validation. Our scripts perform various checks to see
if all of the necessary data are present in the submitted files.
If a file is found to be incorrect, it can be edited in the
browser window and checked again. This step can be repeated
as many times as needed;
Deposition. The validated files can be deposited to COD.
After a successful deposition COD numbers for the newly deposited
structures will be displayed.
Currently we accept two types of files:
Plain CIF files;
ZIP archives that contain CIF files.
