digitization of IUCr journals

The digitization of the full back catalogue of IUCr journals was carried out in association with the UK Higher Education Digitisation Service (HEDS). It involved the scanning of over 50 000 articles and the creation of nearly 200 000 PDF pages.

High quality TIFF images were produced of each journal page by scanning, and PDFs were created from these TIFFs. In creating the PDFs currently available, the size and download speed of each file were carefully considered as well as the high quality required to ensure that every part of each paper is clear and understandable.
