To insure that coordinate release for structures with "Hold for
Publication" status is consistent with the current PDB Hold Policy,
the PDB will place a one-year limit on the length of this hold period.
If the citation for a structure is not published within the one-year
period, depositors will be given the option to either release or
withdraw the deposition.
The one-year limit on the hold period will be applied to new
depositions as well as current depositions with "Hold for Publication"
status. Depositors with structures currently held for more than one
year are currently being contacted and asked to decide if they would
like to release or withdraw these entries.
