Citizen Scientists and Their Contributions to Internet Based Chemistry

submitted by: AntonyWilliams
This presentation was a presentation to a group of chemistry students at Drexel University. The premise of this presentation was an overview of the ChemSpider search engine and database but during the process of teaching about ChemSpider an overview of various aspects of internet based chemistry were given. This included: the quality of chemistry-related data online, an overview of InChIs as a basis for searching the internet by chemical structure and semantic markup of chemistry articles.

An Overview of ChemSpider, A Structure Based Community for Chemists, and Chemmantis, a Markup System for Chemistry Documents

This is a presentation I gave at Drexel University regarding our development of the ChemSpider and ChemMantis platforms. ChemSpider is built with the intention of providing a structure centric community for chemists and ChemMantis is to mark up and integrate chemistry based documents to online resources.
