Cheminfo Retrieval Fourth Class FA09

submitted by: jcbradley
This is a recording of the fourth class on Chemical Information Retrieval on Oct 15, 2009 at Drexel University. It starts with some tips on removing formatting from Wikispaces pages, the Drexel Cisco VPN client for accessing paid subscriptions off campus and how to link to a DOI. The first two assignments for the class are then described. The first involves summarizing each paragraph of an article and an option to use AcaWiki is demonstrated. The second involves filling in an FAQ for...

Crowdsourcing Solubility using Open Notebook Science

submitted by: jcbradley
Jean-Claude Bradley presents at the American Chemical Society on August 16, 2009. The talk starts with highlighting how Open Notebook Science has been used to shed light on the recent report of using sodium hydride (NaH) as an oxidant. Next the Open Notebook Science Challenge is described, where ONS coupled to crowdsourcing is used to measure and share non-aqueous solubility data. Recent developments in using bots to contribute to the scientific process and applications to the Ugi...

iSchool Open Notebook Science Talk

submitted by: jcbradley

This talk covers Open Notebook Science from an information technology perspective. It was presented by Jean-Claude Bradley at the Drexel iSchool on November 11, 2008. Although solubility measurements and chemical reactions are mentioned the focus is more on how information is stored, retrieved and used using free and hosted services such as Blogger, GoogleDocs, Wikispaces, ChemSpider, CDD and others. The UsefulChem project and the Open Notebook Science Challenge are highlighted.
