This is a "vendor presentation" that I gave in New Orleans on June 14th 2010. It is a very general presentation on ChemSpider relevant to the needs of librarians.

Transcript

  • 1. ChemSpider: Collecting and Curating the World’s Chemistry with the Community
  • 2. What are Trustworthy Sources Online?
  • 3. What is the modern online search?
  • 4. What is Methane?
  • 5. What is Methane?
  • 6. What ELSE is Methane???
  • 7. Chemistry is Complex
  • 8. Where is chemistry online?  Encyclopedic articles (Wikipedia)  Chemical company databases  Metabolic pathway databases  Property databases  Patents with chemical structures  Drug Discovery data  Scientific publications  Blogs/Wikis  Why not integrate it all?!
  • 9. As few interfaces as possible What do humans want?
  • 10. A Pragmatic Vision “Build a Structure Centric Community”  Integrate chemical structure data on the web  Create a “structure-based hub” to information and data  Provide access to structure-based “algorithms”  Let chemists contribute their own data  Allow the community to curate/correct data
  • 11. Resourcing structure-based info
  • 12. ChemSpider Searches
  • 13. What is Levulinic Acid?
  • 14. Basic Info
  • 15. External Links
  • 16. External Links to Data
  • 17. Patent Integration
  • 18. Google Patent Integration
  • 19. Access to Articles  RSC Journals  RSC Books  PubMed  Google Scholar  Google Books  Microsoft Academic Search
  • 20. Articles Linked
  • 21. The RSC Publishing Platform (Beta)
  • 22. RSC Databases  Direct links into six Royal Society of Chemistry databases  Mass Spectrometry Bulletin  Laboratory Hazards Bulletin  Methods in Organic Synthesis  Catalysts and Catalyzed Reactions  Natural Product Updates  Analytical Abstracts
  • 23. Access to Articles
  • 24. Google Scholar
  • 25. Experimental and Predicted Properties
  • 26. Experimental and Predicted Properties
  • 27. Links from ChemSpider  Chemical suppliers  Other publications  Analytical Data  Related Reactions  Wikipedia  Patents  “Everything”
  • 28. Linked Data on the Web
  • 29. How “Big” is ChemSpider?  Nearly 25 million compounds, >400 data sources  A crowdsourced deposition and curation platform  Grows daily – more depositions, more data  But now also a publishing platform for the community
  • 30. Citizen Scientists Add and Validate
  • 31. Crowd-sourcing Chemistry Curation  Crowd-sourced curation: identify errors, add and edit data in a “controlled environment”
  • 32. Citizens as Data Sources
  • 33. What do computers want? “Interfaces” Web services flickr.com/photos/microcosmos
  • 34. ChemSpider Everywhere: ChemMobi
  • 35. Mobile ChemSpider
  • 36. ChemSpider Multimedia Content  The web is of course a multimedia host today  ChemSpider is a multimedia host for Chemistry  Images  MP3s  Videos  Chemistry data: spectra, crystal structures
  • 37. Multimedia Content Holder
  • 38. Periodic Table Images
  • 39. CAS SciFinder
  • 40. reaxys
  • 41. Differences between ChemSpider, Reaxys and SciFinder  Everything on Reaxys and Scifinder is curated  The data resources can be over a 100 years old  The platforms are commercial and “read-only”  ChemSpider is free, to everyone  Data are in a state of ongoing curation & annotation  Data resources are from the “electronic era”  Data are expanded daily and enhanced on an ongoing basis  The platform delivers integrated algorithm access
  • 42. Semantic Markup: Project Prospect
  • 43. Semantic Linking of Publications  What would you want to link off a structure?  Chemical suppliers  Other publications  Analytical Data  Related Reactions  Wikipedia  Patents  “Everything”
  • 44. Chemistry on the Internet FUTURE  The “semantic web” for chemistry is in place  Crowdsourcing is commonplace  Chemists will search the web by “structure”  Chemistry articles indexed and searchable  Reduced number of searches to find data because data are integrated – compounds, vendors, syntheses, data, publications and patents  A world of Open Access and Open Data
  • 45. Community Contribution  ChemSpider wins “Community contribution” best practice award”  ChemSpider wins I-Expo innovation award, Paris, France, June 2010
