Reading list for metrology in chemistry published

 bookpile 100

The Eurachem Education and Training Working Group has prepared a reading list containing references to documents relating to all aspects of metrology in chemistry, with a particular focus on quality assurance. While not intended to be a comprehensive list of all publications relating to quality in analytical measurement, the list aims to provide references to a selection of websites, standards, guides and  books which will hopefully be of use to all those involved with chemical analysis, including laboratory staff, students, lecturers and trainers.

The reading list can be accessed here, both as a pdf version and as a series of web pages.
