Table 12 shows the accounts of the Publications and Journals Development Fund (PJDF). This fund was established in 1984 and has been built up through transfers from other funds, such as AC and JAC. In order to build up the fund further and in a systematic way, with the goal to make it self-supporting, the EC decided to increase its balance by crediting it with interest currently calculated as 6% of the balance of the fund, as shown in Table 12. During the triennium, the major expenses are related to the purchase of computer hardware and software, programming and development, the meetings of the Committee on Electronic Publishing, Dissemination and Storage of Information and of the Section Editors, and the launch of JSR.
It is the EC's policy to support and encourage the IUCr's highly qualified staff by supplying them with the best equipment.
