ICDD Data Submission


Thank you for your interest in contributing your diffraction data to the ICDD®. You can submit your powder and/or single crystal diffraction data by emailing the data to our Editorial Team (editor@icdd.com). The ICDD accepts CIFs as well as other common file extensions (i.e. .hkl, .gsas, .txt, .out, .xy, etc.).

Some of the common information submitted with the diffraction data includes chemical formula and name, raw experimental data, interplanar d-spacings with intensities, cell parameters, atomic coordinates, instrument parameters, physical properties, etc. The more information provided, the stronger the entry.

Please note that submission of data does not guarantee publication in the Powder Diffraction File™. The pattern(s) will be put through a tiered editorial review evaluating both quality and uniqueness. We thank you for your contribution and cooperation in aiding our efforts to produce a more comprehensive and accurate Powder Diffraction File.
