Title
Communication and communities of chemists

Abstract
The Internet has had a profound impact on the way that chemists communicate. Electronic periodicals, discussion lists, and other resources are fairly well established, but now 'virtual communities' are starting to appear. Discusses the concept of community both from a social and an economic viewpoint. In particular 3 communities for chemists are compared. These are American Chemical society (http://www.ChemCenter.org), Royal Society of Chemistry (http://www.chemsoc.org) and ChemWeb Inc. (http://www.ChemWeb.com). Concludes that all the communities are immature, but all are developing fast. Their success will depend on the extent to which they build up member loyalty and intellectual content over the next few years
