> Dear Colleagues,
> We are pleased to report the important developments below.
> Firstly the front page of the IUCr website (www.iucr.org) reported progress made at the University of Manchester with raw diffraction data sets registered with dois and then linked to the appropriate articles in Acta Cryst. [Reproduced below.] 
> Secondly our colleague in Poland, Dr Mariusz Jaskolski, on seeing the IUCr website news piece, alerted us to his progress in Poland with his raw diffraction data sets (see his email below):-

> Dear John,
> Thanks very much and thumbs up for posting an important message about raw data deposition at the IUCr website.  I can proudly tell you that here in Poland we have also started a routine practice of raw data deposition at the RepOD Repository at the University of Warsaw.  The first deposit, connected with a paper currently under consideration by Acta Cryst. D, can be accessed at:
> http://dx.doi.org/10.18150/9887707    or
> https://repod.pon.edu.pl/dataset/dna-rna-chimera-raw-data
> So the flame of this good practice seems to be spreading.
> All best wishes,
> Mariusz

> Preserving diffraction images as part of the scientific record
> The Diffraction Data Deposition Working Group (DDDWG) of the IUCr is continuing its work to evaluate the desirability of preserving diffraction images and other raw data sets as part of the permanent record of a scientific investigation. While the case has yet to be made for comprehensive archiving by centralised agencies, the Working Group has encouraged the assignment of persistent identifiers to data sets archived by a researcher's local institution as an interim approach.
> Following the University of Manchester Library's assignment of Digital Object Identifiers (DOIs) to research data sets stored in its repository, a suite of articles on the platins and histidine by Helliwell and co-authors has been updated to include these DOI-based links in the supporting information (e.g. Tanley & Helliwell, 2014).
> Prior to the University's implementation of data storage with associated DOIs, several of these data sets were also archived informally at the University of Utrecht and in the Australian Store-Synchrotron facility. The story of the reprocessing of some of these data sets by an independent investigator has already been told in a recent article related to the work of the DDDWG (Kroon-Batenburg & Helliwell, 2014).
> The work and progress of the DDDWG are described within the various postings in an IUCr Forum, which also includes links to pertinent documents from e.g. the International Council for Science and CODATA on the data archiving policies and practice in other scientific fields. The presentations from the recent DDDWG workshops in Bergen and Rovinj are also available on this site.
