Abstract Stereochemical configuration is determined by the relationship of atoms in three-dimensional space, yet remains most commonly represented in two-dimensional media such as printed publications or computer screens. Recommendations are provided for the display of three-dimensional stereochemical information in two-dimensional diagrams in ways that avoid ambiguity and are likely to be understood correctly by all viewers. Examples are provided for all types of stereochemical configuration… 
Graphical representation standards for chemical structure diagrams (IUPAC Recommendations 2008)
Abstract The purpose of a chemical structure diagram is to convey information - typically the identity of a molecule - to another human reader or as input to a computer program. Any form of

Graphical Representation Standards for Organic Chemistry Script: IUPAC Recommendation 2008
The present article focuses on the etiquettes of structure drawings along with a summary in brief about the IUPAC 2008 recommendations in perspectives of organic chemistry.
A rule-based approach for recognition of chemical structure diagrams
A novel approach that models the principal recognition steps for molecule diagrams in a strictly rule based system is presented and a framework that enables the definition of a set of rules for the recognition of different bond types and arrangements as well as for resolving possible ambiguities is developed.

A unique approach is presented and sigma notation rules for the correlation of stereochemistry of carbohydrates are introduced in order to enhance the understanding of stereochemical structures.
History of the Harvard ChemDraw project.
The importance of “chemical glyphs” may be highlighted by the fact that two chemists not sharing a common language may effectively communicate through the use of a series of valence bond structures and associated “curved arrow” notations.
Stereo-Aware Extension of HOSE Codes
A method to extend Hierarchically ordered spherical environment (HOSE) codes with stereochemistry information enables distinguishing atoms which would be considered identical in traditional HOSE codes.

"Good Annotation Practice" for Chemical Data in Biology
This work presents some challenges and achievements in the standardisation of chemical language in biological databases, with emphasis on three aspects of annotation: 1. good drawing practice: how to draw unambiguous 2-D diagrams; 2. good naming practice: How to give most appropriate names; and 3. good ontology practice:How to link the entity of interest by defined logical relationships to other entities.
