EMDB Hold/Release Policy
- EMDataBank strongly encourages 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.
