Chempound is a new generation repository architecture based on RDF, semantic dictionaries and linked data. It has been developed to hold any type of chemical object expressible in CML and is exemplified by crystallographic experiments and computational chemistry calculations. In both examples, the repository can hold >50k entries which can be searched by SPARQL endpoints and pre-indexing of key fields. The Chempound architecture is general and adaptable to other fields of data-rich science.
Online materials database (known as PAULING FILE project) with nearly 2 million entries: physical properties, crystal structures, phase diagrams, available via API, ready for modern data-intensive applications. The source of these entries are about 300,000 peer-reviewed publications in materials science, processed during the last 16 years by an international team of PhD editors. The results are presented online with a quick search interface. The basic access is provided for free.
AMCSD is an interface to a crystal structure database that includes every structure published in the American Mineralogist, The Canadian Mineralogist, European Journal of Mineralogy and Physics and Chemistry of Minerals, as well as selected datasets from other journals. The database is maintained under the care of the Mineralogical Society of America and the Mineralogical Association of Canada, and financed by the National Science Foundation. You may search by a mineral of your choice, or choose a mineral from a complete list to help aid your research.
The most comprehensive database on fully determined inorganic crystal structures • Full structural data: cell parameters, atom positions for all entries, displacement parameters • Full bibliographic data: publication title, journal reference(s), author names • Full structure description: Structural formula, compositions, ANX formulae, structure types • High-quality data: extensive data evaluation and correction by senior experts • Web and PC based software solutions, data updated twice a year • 25+ years of serving the scientific community
More than 25 years ago FIZ Karlsruhe started depositing crystal structure data linked to publications in German journals. At that time it was irrelevant whether the deposited structures were organic or inorganic. Today FIZ Karlsruhe is responsible for storing the structure data of inorganic compounds. Organic structure data are stored by the Cambridge Crystallographic Data Center. Nowadays many publishers inform their authors that in parallel to a publication in a scientific journal, crystal structure data should also be stored in the Crystal Structure Depot at FIZ Karlsruhe. A CSD number will be assigned to the data for later reference in the publication. The data can then be ordered from the Crystal Structure Depot at FIZ Karlsruhe.
GWAS Central (previously the Human Genome Variation database of Genotype-to-Phenotype information) is a database of summary level findings from genetic association studies, both large and small. We actively gather datasets from public domain projects, and encourage direct data submission from the community.
ChemSpider is a free chemical structure database providing fast access to over 58 million structures, properties and associated information. By integrating and linking compounds from more than 400 data sources, ChemSpider enables researchers to discover the most comprehensive view of freely available chemical data from a single online search. It is owned by the Royal Society of Chemistry. ChemSpider builds on the collected sources by adding additional properties, related information and links back to original data sources. ChemSpider offers text and structure searching to find compounds of interest and provides unique services to improve this data by curation and annotation and to integrate it with users’ applications.
ASTM International, formerly known as the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM), is a globally recognized leader in the development and delivery of international voluntary consensus standards. Today, some 12,000 ASTM standards are used around the world to improve product quality, enhance safety, facilitate market access and trade, and build consumer confidence.
The figshare service for the University of Sheffield allows researchers to store, share and publish research data. It helps the research data to be accessible by storing Metadata alongside datasets. Additionally, every uploaded item receives a Digital Object identifier (DOI), which allows the data to be citable and sustainable. If there are any ethical or copyright concerns about publishing a certain dataset, it is possible to publish the metadata associated with the dataset to help discoverability while sharing the data itself via a private channel through manual approval.
SureChemOpen is a free resource for researchers who want to search, view and link to patent chemistry. For end-users with professional search and analysis needs, we offer the fully-featured SureChemPro. For enterprise users, SureChemDirect provides all our patent chemistry via an API or a data feed. The SureChem family of products is built upon the Claims® Global Patent Database, a comprehensive international patent collection provided by IFI Claims®. This state of the art database is normalized and curated to provide unprecedented consistency and quality.
