This is an edited list of the references from the chapter on Standards in Peter Atkins new book Liquid Materialities It focuses in particular on the current debate about quality and standards and how these are constructed and implemented by collectives of “communities of persons and institutions mutually exchanging the same representations and material representatives for abstract scientific entities”!
Where possible I have found links to documents but as ever Journal can be a bit shy!
