Both I- and C-centered conventional unit cells can occur with monoclinic centered lattices.
An effective way to promote this harmonization of crystallographic data could be achieved if journals were to modify their rules and policies to require or, at least, recommend that the standard conventional cell be used for reporting the monoclinic centered lattices.
