Archiving Policy for IUPAC
At its 83rd meeting held in Madrid, Spain, 7-8 October 2006, the Bureau
approved a policy that addresses the issue of the deposit of IUPAC copyrighted
material in institutional archives. The new policy addresses both the
need to support the open access initiatives of Universities, research
institutions, and government funding agencies and the need to ensure
that the integrity of IUPAC's copyrighted material is maintained.
IUPAC makes freely
available the full texts of all articles published in Pure and
Applied Chemistry on the IUPAC web site, <www.iupac.org/publications/pac>,
for all except the current and most recently completed volumes. In
addition, authors may immediately deposit copies of their own articles
online, for archival and distribution purposes, but only in the form
of the IUPAC published pdf version. IUPAC Technical Reports and Recommendations
are freely accessible from date of publication.
is a footnote to the contrary, reproduction or translation of material

is encouraged, provided that it is accompanied by a reference to the
original in Chemistry International.
