Internet Journal of Chemistry, 1999, 2.

During the last two years chemists from all over the world have gathered in ORGLIST - Organic Chemistry Mailing List on the Internet - to discuss Organic Chemistry. In this article the two years of operation are analyzed, evaluated and characterized on the basis of archived messages and after a survey was made among the members. The ORGLIST case shows how organic chemists could build a successful virtual community based on common scientific interests using the simplest Internet tools.
