Subcommittee on Records and Archives

Aims

< back to CPCDS

The CPCDS Subcommittee on Records and Archives will support the efforts of the Secretariat to archive both hard-copy and born-digital outputs from IUPAC on an ongoing basis. The Subcommittee will develop guidance in conjunction with Divisions and Committees for management and retention of records related to the scientific work and community engagement activities of IUPAC. The Subcommittee will formulate a multi-prong strategy for archiving that addresses the variety of outputs and materials from IUPAC activities, including records, correspondence, web-based materials, social media, datasets and digital cheminformatics artifacts. The Subcommittee will work with the Science History Institute as our partner for print archiving and establish formal services for supporting digital preservation as appropriate.
