publCIF – free software to edit and preview a CIF for publication
publCIF takes a crystallographic information file (CIF) and prepares a formatted paper (Preprint) in the style of Acta Crystallographica Sections C and E, and IUCrData.
The CIF and the Preprint are presented side-by-side and are both editable. Changes made to one are applied to the other as you type.
Starting with a CIF resulting from a structure refinement, use publCIF to:
publCIF employs extensive CIF syntax and dictionary compliance checking, both as you type and when specifically requested. In addition, it provides a number of editorial tools to help you write your paper in the style required by IUCr journals.
publCIF is described in the Journal of Applied Crystallography: Westrip, S. P. (2010). J. Appl. Cryst. 43, 920–925 [doi:10.1107/S0021889810022120]
IUCr Journals now include a Funding information section in journal articles and additionally include this information in the distributed metadata associated with articles (see http://journals.iucr.org/services/funding.html).
This version of publCIF includes a widget to collect such data for CIF-based articles.
