EMDB Hold/Release Policy

  • EMDataBank and EMDB strongly encourage depositors to make their data publicly available as soon as possible and not to put their data on hold.

  • Maps may be held (before release) no longer than one year and structure factors may be held no longer than one year from the deposition date.

  • Map Header XML files (i.e., the metadata associated with the map entry) are released immediately after curation (view an example header file).

  • Hold requests must be submitted at the time of the initial deposition.

  • Maps derived from data generated by other research groups (e.g. EMPIAR data) may be deposited but will not be processed or released until an associated peer-reviewed publication becomes available.
