    4. Business Arising from the Minutes

    • IPICS subsequently supplied funds
    • Details requested from Dr Mohinder Singh were not yet supplied
    • Chemical Abstracts were not yet contacted

      5. Report of the Editor and Chairman

      Volumes 4 and 5 were published. There had been limited response for library subscriptions. About 140 subscriptions were needed. The annual cost of journal production is approx $3000. Libraries were therefore encouraged to take a subscription.

      The abstracting of journals by Chemical Abstracts requires the issue of 5 volumes.

      The budget statement was included in the report. Funds were received from IFS, IPICS, UNESCO and FACS, to be shown in the statement of the Treasurer.

      An ISBN number needs to be obtained.

      The following comments were provided :

      • Need to improve circulation

      It was suggested by T Spurling that the journal needed to be published electronically. The control of subscription is less important than circulation of authors material.J Cannon suggested to publish a short account of the ACGC meeting in Chemistry in Australia and journals of other national societies.

      • Long term funding

      There needs to be a capital fund (Mohinder Singh). The proposed budget should include travel for attendance at ACGC Meetings. J Cannon spoke against the supply of travel funds.

      The Proposed Budget for 1997-98, including 7ACC in Hiroshima, May 1997 and the ACGC Meeting in 1998, was presented by S Pyne; Moved B Noller; Seconded L Prage; Carried.
