The inaugural ligand validation meeting brought co-crystal structure determination experts from academe and industry together with X-ray Crystallography and Computational Chemistry software developers to discuss and develop best practices for validation of co-crystal structures; editorial/refereeing standards for publishing co-crystal structures; and recommendations for ligand representation across the archive. These recommendations have been published: Outcome of the First wwPDB/CCDC/D3R Ligand Validation Workshop (2016) Structure 24: 502508 doi: 10.1016/j.str.2016.02.017
