Japan Association for International Chemical Information

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Japan Association for International Chemical Information (JAICI) (一般社団法人化学情報協会, ippan shadanhoujin kagaku jouhou kyoukai) is a nonprofit organization in Tokyo, Japan. It indexes chemical information and translates abstracts between Japanese and English. It works in collaboration with the Chemical Abstracts Service (CAS) in Columbus, Ohio.[1]

JAICI was founded with the help of Hideaki Chihara in 1971. It succeeded an earlier organization, the Japanese CA Abstractors' Association, which was started in 1954.[2]
