IUCr 1993 Triennial Report - IUCr/Oxford University Press Book Series

The launching of this Series was reported to the General Assembly at Perth (1987). The agreement between the IUCr and the OUP was finalized soon afterwards. The Series consists of three sub-series:

IUCr Crystallographic Symposia (IUCr CS)

IUCr Monographs on Crystallography (IUCr MC)

IUCr Texts on Crystallography (IUCr TC)

The Book Series Committee membership currently is J. H. Robertson (UK; Chairman), A. M. Glazer (UK), J. P. Glusker (USA), K. Kuchitsu (Japan) and V. I. Simonov (Russia), with H. J. Stanbury as the ex officio representative of the OUP and the President and the General Secretary of the IUCr as ex officio members. This Committee considers proposals for new publications, whether proceedings of Schools or Symposia, monographs or textbooks on crystallography, and makes recommendations to the IUCr Executive Committee and to the Delegates of the Press (the body responsible for approving all publications handled by the OUP).

Other topics under active consideration

Life's Molecular Machinery. This topic, which has been on the table since the birth of the Book Series Committee, has recently found a prospective author.

Instrumental Methods of X-ray Analysis. A quite recent proposal, which looks very promising.

Crystals. A book (in English) to mark the 50th Anniversary of the Institute of Crystallography of the Academy of Sciences of Russia, in Moscow.

Molecules and Crystals. A possible book to bring together the important and related areas of molecular recognition and crystal engineering.

Future membership of the Book Series Committee

The current membership is willing to continue for a further three-year period.
