Robert D. Chirico, Theodoor W. de Loos, Juergen Gmehling, Anthony R. Goodwin, Sumnesh Gupta, Kenneth N. Marsh, Calvin Spencer, Martin P. Trusler, William M. Haynes, Vicente Rives, Joan F. Brennecke


Recommendations are given for reporting in the primary scientific literature of measurements involving phase equilibrium. The focus is on documentation issues, and many of the recommendations may also be applied to the more general fields of thermodynamic and transport properties. The historical context of the work and specific plans for implementation of the recommendations are discussed.
