The macromolecular CIF dictionary covers a very broad and active field, and a more formal procedure exists for the submission and review of proposed extensions. Possible new definitions are submitted using pro forma dictionary templates to a member of an editorial board appointed by the mmCIF dictionary maintenance group. Accepted proposals are approved by the DMG and released for general community review in provisional extension dictionaries as circumstances require. The extension dictionary is revised as necessary and is finally incorporated within the parent mmCIF dictionary after COMCIFS approval has been granted.
