          Abstract

          The Crystallography Open Database (COD) is an ongoing initiative by crystallographers to gather all published inorganic, metal–organic and small organic molecule structures in one database, providing a straightforward search and retrieval interface. The COD adopts an open-access model for its >80 000 structure files.

          Abstract

          The Crystallography Open Database (COD), which is a project that aims to gather all available inorganic, metal–organic and small organic molecule structural data in one database, is described. The database adopts an open-access model. The COD currently contains ∼80 000 entries in crystallographic information file format, with nearly full coverage of the International Union of Crystallography publications, and is growing in size and quality.
