Title: Enhancement of the electronic version of the IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology

Task Group

Members: Jiri Jirat, Simona Kutná, Miloslav Nic, and Bohumír Valter

Further enhancement of the electronic version of the IUPAC Compendium of Chemical Terminology with focus on its update process and penetration into the media.

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 service.

4. Register the Gold Book into the CrossRef system and obtain DOIs (Digital Object Identifier) for all Gold Book entries.

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 value.
