Chemical data evaluation: general considerations and approaches for IUPAC projects and the chemistry community (IUPAC Technical Report)

Published

Author(s)

Joe W. Magee

Abstract

The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC) has a long tradition of supporting the compilation of chemical data and their evaluation through direct projects, nomenclature and terminology work, and partnerships with international scientific bodies, government agencies, and other organizations. The IUPAC Interdivisional Subcommittee on Critical Evaluation of Data (ISCED) has been established to provide guidance on issues related to the evaluation of chemical data. In this our first report we define the general principles of the evaluation of scientific data and describe best practices and approaches to data evaluation in chemistry.
