Curated scientific databases such as the IUPHAR database resemble conventional publications such as reference manuals in that they represent the work of a large number of people who both create and revise their contents. The difference is that curated databases have more internal structure and that they change more for supporting citation of data: there are few standards, there is little supporting technology, and the requirements above, if they are met at all, are met in an ad hoc fashion.
