Publication of your CIF
You should always attempt to resolve as many as possible of the
alerts in all categories. Often the minor alerts point to easily fixed
oversights, errors and omissions in your CIF or refinement strategy, so
attention to these fine details can be worthwhile. In order to resolve some
of the more serious problems it may be necessary to carry out additional
measurements or structure refinements. However, the nature of your study may
justify the reported deviations from the submission requirements of the
journal and these should be commented upon in the discussion or experimental
section of a paper - after all, they might represent an interesting feature.
If level A alerts remain, which you believe to be justified deviations, and
you intend to submit this CIF for publication in Acta Crystallographica
Section C, you should additionally insert an explanation in your CIF using the
Validation Reply Form (VRF) below. Your explanation will be assessed by a
Validation Co-editor who will decide whether your paper is suitable for
publication in its present form.
You are also encouraged to complete a VRF for submissions to Acta
Crystallographica Section E.
The VRF will be considered as part of the review process. In addition,
the VRF responses are included in the checkCIF/PLATON report which is
available online for all papers published in Section E
If you intend to submit to another section of Acta Crystallographica or
Journal of Applied Crystallography or Journal of Synchrotron Radiation,
you should make sure that at least a
basic structural check is run on the
final version of your CIF prior to submission.
