Re: Relationship between _publ_author.id and _audit_author.id

Hello Mike,

Am I right in assuming that these submissions would handle the _publ_* information from the global section correctly?

I really think that there should never be _publs_* items in the data blocks themselves.

CIF submissions are in fact mandatory for submissions to Acta
Crystallographica Section E and IUCrData and do contain the entire manuscript.

Acta Crystallographica Section C will accept pure CIF submissions or a hybrid
submission of structural CIF and text in a Word processor format.
