Making an imPACt
Over the last few years, the IUPAC journal Pure and Applied Chemistry has steadily been reshaped in various ways. One of the most recent and noticeable accomplishment is the completion of the digital archives. The PAC digital archive contains all articles published in the 80 volumes since 1960.
Document Data Services started this project in fall 2003, following the recommendation of the Committee on Printed and Electronic Publication at its meeting during the 2003 General Assembly. The restoration process included black and white scanning at 600 dpi and 300 dpi for pages with color and halftone figures, TIFF conversion to searchable PDF, indexation of the scanned article, and also rebinding of the original paper copies. To keep quality assurance of the archive, all digitalized pages have been reviewed and manually retouched if needed. The resulting files are archived on CD and made available on the PAC website.
