Abstract: We are building an encyclopaedia of organic chemistry (EnCOrE) in English and making it freely available on the internet. We expect the tools to be used by novice as well as advanced researchers from university and industry. They will allow cross-searches based on chemical structures and equations, and on explanatory texts and an elaborated dictionary. EnCOrE will be created under a strong editorial organisation but also collaboratively between chemists. This will ensure that it is kept up to date and will favour a consensual approach. We will disclose our effort to develop, in this way, the EnCOrE dictionary and the protocols to favour collaboration.
