Chemistry International is the information and news publication of IUPAC. It is intended to provide a two-way exchange of information, news and feature articles as part of a mission to reach out globally to our members, Academies of Science, Chemistry Societies, UN and regional governmental organisations, academia, industry, and those interested in global policy or issues to the extent that these are influenced by chemistry. Specifically information and news will be provided on IUPAC activities to enable others to engage with IUPAC.
It is anticipated that it will be published in both paper and digital formats, with format selection ultimately driven by the immediacy of the information.

Draft Terms of Reference
The Editorial Board of Chemistry International will:
- Advise the Executive Director and the Editor of Chemistry International on publishing policy, the planning and scheduling of features and news, choices of format, and the business plan for Chemistry International;
- Monitor the editorial standards, relevance and feedback from readers and report to the IUPAC Bureau;

Terms of Office
Proposed Composition and Terms of Office
The composition of the Editorial Board will reflect both the advisory role of the Board and its active role in the editorial process.
It will comprise the Secretary General, the Chair of the Committee for Publications and Cheminformatics Data Standards, the Scientific Editor of Pure and Applied Chemistry, and up to nine members/volunteers nominated by the Divisions and Standing Committees. It will be chaired by an officer of IUPAC.
The membership will reflect the diversity of the chemistry community. The membership will be agreed upon with the Executive Committee and approved by the IUPAC President.
Members will serve for the duration of their primary IUPAC appointments or as agreed upon by the IUPAC President for up to a maximum of four years renewable for a second four-year period, but suitably staggered to ensure a measure of continuity.
