This is an unusual issue, in that much of it is dedicated to a Special Section of the Sampling Column on “Economic arguments for representative sampling”. We have been publishing the Sampling Column since 2014. It is edited by Kim Esbensen, initially with the help of Claas Wagner. The column started in a more tutorial style but has evolved over the years to tackle most areas of representative sampling.

The Product Focus in this issue is on Raman Spectroscopy.

Economic arguments for representative sampling

A Special Section dedicated to examing the "Economic arguments for representative sampling" with contributions from over 20 representative sampling experts.

Finding data in today's information age: the Bayer COLID system

COLID is a Finding Aid, essentially a "catalogue of catalogues" collating any data source with which it is connected. It collects and provides metadata about basically any resource that you want to incorporate, links endpoints, such as spectra, in a repository or details in a chemicals database, and links it all semantically with any other related resource.
