Submit Your Dissertation and Get Published!
Need to get published? Working on a dissertation that contains a powder diffraction pattern? Why not submit your dissertation to the International Centre for Diffraction, publishers of the Powder Diffraction File to get your diffraction patterns published?
If you have single-phase X-ray powder diffraction pattern(s) in your dissertation and submit a copy of your dissertation to ICDD, we will review your pattern(s) ASAP. Once all pertinent data is obtained, we will process your entry through our four-tier editorial review system. If accepted by the ICDD Editorial Team, you will receive a PDF number as proof of publication.
So let us help you jump-start your career – contribute your powder patterns to the PDF!
