Serving up and consuming community content for chemists using wikis

Published on

Wikipedia has become the world’s most famous encyclopedia using as it’s platform the MediaWiki open source software. The software is supported not only by the MediaWiki foundation but by a community of developers who build widgets and add-ons to extend the capabilities. This presentation will review how MediaWiki has been used as a container for a number of resources of value to chemists, specifically SciMobileApps, SciDBs and ScientistsDB holding content regarding mobile scientific apps, scientific databases and scientists. We will also review how chemistry content within Wikipedia has been used to enhance the content underlying the RSC ChemSpider database and how the platform supports an educational environment for chemistry students.

  • However, current ChemSpider user interface is not student friendly. IT contains too much information which is irrelevant to school students. Martin’s first project is developing a simpler ‘student interface’ for less experienced users. Called a substance page, being developed in our wiki environment, contains only physical data and spectra plus some information imported from wikipedia. Also has the lewis version of the structure, important because students are not introduced to skeletal forms until the later stages of A-level

It’s a WIKI!
