About the directory

The World Directory of Crystallographers is a service run by the International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) to facilitate communication within the crystallographic community, and between crystallographers and other scientists. The first directory was created in 1957. The current directory has over 8000 members, and makes looking for researchers with expertise in a particular crystallographic topic or in a certain country quick and simple.
Members get a number of benefits, including access to IUCr services and publication tools, and discounts on crystallography titles from publishers such as the Mineralogical Society, Oxford University Press, Taylor & Francis and Wiley.
