The Changing Face of FIPAT: Web publication of Terminologia Embryologica and Terminologia Neuroanatomica

FIPAT is pleased to announce that the latest version of Terminologia Embryologica [TE2] was published on February 21. Publication of Terminologia Neuroanatomica followed on February 23. Both are available on the open part of the Dalhousie section of the FIPAT website []. Both represent the official terminologies of the anatomical profession.

In the lead-up to this, the then current versions of Terminologia Anatomica [TA], Terminologia Embryologica [TE] and Terminologia Neuroanatomica [TNA] were made available to the IFAA member societies by means of a specialised Internet DropBox in early 2016. Responses were incorporated and TA, TNA and TE were all further reviewed and developed extensively.

Website publication represents a major milestone in the progress and development of FIPAT. Replacement of the book format by electronic publication is a central element of FIPAT strategy. Inevitably, the book format, while elegant and authoritative, entailed very long delays in revision and updating. By contrast, electronic publication has the key advantages of providing wide availability and of enabling responsiveness to feedback on terminology in close to real time. It enables frequent revision and updating. FIPAT organisation is geared to react rapidly to feedback, comment, criticisms and proposals through its structure; a specific working group is responsible for each Terminologia.

TE2 and TNA will be closely followed by TA2. The published terminologies are licensed under a Creative Commons International Licence of the CC BY-ND form.
