    • Chem# - Semantically Enriched Linked Open Chemical Data 

      Adams, Sam; Murray-Rust, Peter; Brooks, Brian; Downing, Jim; Day, Nick (Murray-Rust group, Unilever Centre for Molecular Science Informatics, Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, 2011-07-05)
      The problem: Vast quantities of chemical data (e.g. crystal structures, NMR spectra, experimental reports) are generated every day. The majority of this data is never published, and the data that is published is ...
    • Chemistry in DSpace 

      Downing, Jim (2006-04-20)
      This presentation is an overview of the SPECTRa project that was delivered at the DSpace User Group meeting in Bergen in April 2006. The need for Open Data is described, as is the particular problems that exist for Open ...
    • DSpace Update 

      Downing, Jim (2006-10-19)
      The presentation covers some key facts about the state of the DSpace software and community in October 2006. On the software side 1.4 has been release, 1.4.1 is coming soon and some potential features of 1.5 are ...
    • Embedding Metadata and Other Semantics In Word-Processing Documents 

      Sefton, Peter; Barnes, Ian; Ward, Ron; Downing, Jim (2008-12-08)
      This paper describes a technique for embedding document metadata, and potentially other semantic references inline in word processing documents, which the authors have implemented with the help of a software development ...
    • Extracting and re-using research data from chemistry e-theses: the SPECTRa-T project 

      Morgan, Peter; Downing, Jim; Murray-Rust, Peter; Stewart, Diana; Tonge, Alan; Townsend, Joseph A; Harvey, Matt et al. (11th International Symposium on Electronic Theses and Dissertations, 2008-06)
      Scientific e-theses are data-rich resources, but much of the information they contain is not readily accessible. For chemistry, the SPECTRa-T project has addressed this problem by developing data-mining techniques to ...
    • An Introduction to SPECTRa 

      Downing, Jim (2006-10)
      SPECTRa is delivering tools that enable chemists to prepare and submit Open Data into DSpace Institutional Repositories
    • The semantic architecture of the World-Wide Molecular Matrix (WWMM) 

      Murray-Rust, Peter; Adams, Sam; Downing, Jim; Townsend, Joseph A.; Zhang, Y. Y. (Murray-Rust group, Unilever Centre for Molecular Science Informatics, Department of Chemistry, University of Cambridge, 2011-07-04)
      The World-Wide Molecular Matrix (WWMM) is a ten year project to create a peer-to-peer (P2P) system for the publication and collection of chemical objects, including over 250,000 molecules. It has now been instantiated in ...
    • The SPECTRa Project: A Wider Chemistry View 

      Downing, Jim; Tonge, Alan (University of Cambridge, 2006-10-20)
      The SPECTRa project is a collaboration between Imperial College London and the University of Cambridge investigating needs, attitudes and solutions to depositing chemistry data in institutional digital repositories. Because ...
