checkCIF/PLATON (basic structural check)
Welcome to the checkCIF/PLATON service, which is operated by the
IUCr. You may use this form to upload
files for a basic structural check.
Please upload your CIF using the form below.
This basic structural check contains a subset of the full checkCIF/PLATON
tests and includes checks on:
• CIF syntax and construction
• Cell and geometry details
• Space-group symmetry
A basic structural check will be carried out on all papers submitted for
publication in IUCr journals. If you intend to submit to either Acta
Crystallograhica Section C or Acta Crystallographica Section E,
you should make sure that full
publication checks are run on your CIF prior to submission.
