The new edition of the IUPAC Handbook, available for sale now from
the Secretariat and also posted on the IUPAC Web site, contains updated
listings and information on all aspects of IUPACs organization.
Included in the new Handbook are current listings of organization and
membership for all IUPAC divisions, commissions, and committees. Also
included are recently revised lists of IUPAC National Adhering Organizations,
Associate National Adhering Organizations, IUPAC officers, and projects.
While the traditional contents of the Handbook has been updated, this
year, the sections have been reordered to (hopefully!) facilitate use
and reference. The multiples appendixes listing recently published IUPAC
reports and IUPAC-sponsored symposia and conferences, describing procedures
for publication of IUPAC technical reports and recommendations, and
providing guidelines for drafting IUPAC technical reports and recommendations,
have been entirely integrated into various sections. The second half
of the Handbook is the directory of all IUPAC members and fellows.
