---<<< This repository is no longer available. This record is out-dated >>>--- The ONS challenge contains open solubility data, experiments with raw data from different scientists and institutions. It is part of the The Open Notebook Science wiki community, ideally suited for community-wide collaborative research projects involving mathematical modeling and computer simulation work, as it allows researchers to document model development in a step-by-step fashion, then link model prediction to experiments that test the model, and in turn, use feeback from experiments to evolve the model. By making our laboratory notebooks public, the evolutionary process of a model can be followed in its totality by the interested reader. Researchers from laboratories around the world can now follow the progress of our research day-to-day, borrow models at various stages of development, comment or advice on model developments, discuss experiments, ask questions, provide feedback, or otherwise contribute to the progress of science in any manner possible.
Wikispaces, a Free web hosting service (sometimes called a wiki farm) based in San Francisco, California. Launched March 2005, Wikispaces is owned by Tangient LLC and is among the largest wiki hosts. Since 2010 Wikispaces have cooperated with web 2.0 education platform Glogster EDU. Glogster EDU embeds Glogs into Wikispaces services.Open Notebook Science was born from the UsefulChem wikispace developed by Jean-Claude Bradley at Drexel University (Thank You, Jean-Claude!).
