Watson DR, Young JM. Proposals that the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes establish a public database of validly published names and that the Bacteriological Code be amended to change the prescription for citation of validly published names. Int J Syst Evol Microbiol. 2007;57(Pt 5):1167-8.
It is proposed that the International Committee on Systematics of Prokaryotes formally maintain a readily accessible database of validly published names and that Rule 33b of the International Code of Nomenclature of Bacteria be revised to allow a new, abbreviated, format as the sole method by which authors indicate validation of previously published names.
