As part of the project "Standard XML data dictionaries
for chemistry" (project
#2002-022-1-024) an electronic version of the IUPAC Compendium
of Chemical Terminology (Gold Book) was developed.
> see goldbook.iupac.org
The proposed project should build on this
achievement and further enhance the electronic version of the Gold
Book. The main objectives of the project are:
1. Updates of the Gold Book as new IUPAC
recommendations are published and prepared for inclusion.
2. Preparation of a system for online
submission of new Gold Book entries. Such a system should speed
up the publication of terms from newly published materials.
3. Preparation of a software system for
automatic addition of links to relevant Gold Book entries into HTML
and other electronic formats. This system will be made available
to the general public as a standalone application and as an online
4. Register the Gold Book into the CrossRef
system and obtain DOIs (Digital Object Identifier) for all Gold
5. Further enhancements to keep the Gold
Book up-to-date with current technologies.
All the objectives are focused on improvement
of the visibility of the electronic Gold Book and its information
