At the third meeting of the InChITrust Board of Directors, in San Francisco, USA, on 21 March 2010, an agreement (see text below) between IUPAC and the InChI Trust was signed by Jason Wilde (publishing director, Nature Publishing Group, and chairman of the InChI Trust Board) and Terry Renner (IUPAC executive director). This sets out the conditions under which the two organizations intend to further develop and maintain the International Chemical Identifier (InChI). The diagram below explains how the relationship will work.
|While InChI might be a simple concept—its maintenance andfurther development require intricate consideration by various groups; here is how, schematically, the organizations and individuals involved with InChI interact.www.inchi-trust.org|
The InChI Trust was constituted in May 2009 to develop and support the nonproprietary IUPAC InChI standard and promote its uses to the scientific community. Members make annual contributions to the operating costs of the Trust, and IUPAC’s Division VIII InChI Subcommittee acts as a Scientific Advisory Board, with responsibility for continued authentication of the InChI standard. The following organizations are now members of the Trust:
FIZ CHEMIE Berlin
Informa/Taylor & Francis
Nature Publishing Group
Royal Society of Chemistry
