Abstract Almost thirty years ago the criteria that are currently used to verify claims for the discovery of a new element were set down by the comprehensive work of a Transfermium Working Group, TWG, jointly established by IUPAC and IUPAP. The recent completion of the naming of the 118 elements in the first seven periods of the Periodic Table of the Elements was considered as an opportunity for a review of these criteria in the light of the experimental and theoretical advances in the field.

IUPAC and the Naming of Elements
TLDR
To face these challenges the CNIC relied successively on the adjudication of the US National Research Council (US NRC) for the naming of promethium in 1948, and then on an ongoing partnership with the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP).
The periodic table of the elements: the search for transactinides and beyond
The periodic table of Mendeleev, initially proposed on the basis of 66 elements, and containing 82 elements at the time of Moseley (1887–1915), describes nowadays 118 elements. The huge challenge of

TLDR
This review shall look at the historical developments that led to the field of element discovery, the attempts to discover superheavy elements in nature based on the island of stability, and the subsequent successful synthesis of elements and the implications of their half-lives and properties.
Criteria for New Element Discovery: Providing Assurance in a Field of Allure and Romance
Abstract Allure and romance are rarely expected in an article presented under the bulky headline “Criteria that must be satisfied for the discovery of a new chemical element to be recognized.”
The International Year of the Periodic Table 2019
Abstract This year we celebrate the Periodic Table of Chemical Elements in the format proposed by Mendeleev in 1869, and its continued development to this day. This issue of CI describes several
Examination of α-decay half-lives of undetected transfermium isotopes
This study reports the [Formula: see text]-decay half-lives of 39 transfermium isotopes with [Formula: see text], most of which have not been observed. The half-lives were calculated using
Evolution and understanding of the d-block elements in the periodic table.
TLDR
On the occasion of the sesquicentenniel of the discovery of the periodic table by Mendeleev, it is appropriate to look at how these metals have influenced the authors' understanding of periodicity and the relationships between elements.
On the Criteria for Assigning Priority of Discovery of New Elements
Claiming the discovery of a new element is not sufficient for accepting this claim as a discovery by the scientific community. Careful survey of the presented results is needed to elaborate the
Controversies, compromises and the common chemical language
The International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry — whose 100th anniversary fittingly falls during the International Year of the Periodic Table — is most recognized for its role in the naming of
Elements of the Future
Abstract When Dimitri Mendeleev assembled his periodic table in 1869, the heaviest known element was uranium, element 92. As the table filled, it soon became clear that this was the heaviest element
