I have proposed that there should be an Open Crystallography activity (see
me post and previous ones)
I think there is a real chance that we can persuade the International
Union of Crystallography to adopt an Open philosophy on crystallograph. In
my blog (

simply took Panton and changed "science" to "crystallography". In my talk
yesterday I proposed

"All published crystallographic data should be Open"

I would be moderately confident of getting the last sentence adopted. I know
the Union and president, so if we make a careful case I think it would be
well received. This could then act as a template for other scientific
