What it will take to ensure that we build high quality public databases of chemical compounds

What is it about?

We provide an overview of some of our experiences using online chemical compound databases, critique the approaches taken to assemble data and we suggest approaches to deliver definitive reference data sources.

Why is it important?

We have a responsibility to ensure that data in online chemical compound databases are high quality in order to ensure that time is not wasted in erroneous searches, that models are underpinned by accurate data and that improved discoverability of online resources is not marred by incorrect data
