Feeding and consuming data to support Open Notebook Science via the ChemSpider Platform
We are all benefiting from a shift towards openness fed by Open Source, Open Standards, Open Data and Open Access. Open Notebook Science is likely the scientific revolution of the near term. As more scientists become comfortable with the concepts of openly sharing their experiments and data, often in near real time, we are seeing a shift to significant increases in the availability of new data that does not have to be extracted from publications but is available as data feeds that can be delivered to the community. This presentation will provide an overview of how the ChemSpider database from the RSC supports Open Notebook Science using programmatic access to both data and services and how ChemSpider ingests data feeds to mesh together with our existing database of over 27 million chemical compounds.
