checkCIF/PLATON (full structural check)
Welcome to the checkCIF/PLATON service, which is operated by the IUCr. You may use this form to upload files for a full structural check.
Please upload your CIF using the form below.
This full 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
• Anisotropic displacement parameters
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.
If you intend to submit to another section of Acta Crystallographica, Journal of Applied Crystallography or Journal of Synchrotron Radiation, you should make sure that
at least basic structural checks are run on the final version of your CIF prior to submission.
