The abstract for my talk is as follows:
ChemSpider is one of the world’s primary internet resources for chemists and is a crowdsourcing environment where users can deposit, annotate and validate data. What Wikipedia is to encyclopedic articles ChemSpider intends to be for chemistry-related data. Since scientists contribute their time, data and expertise to enhance the content and quality of the database we intend to develop a rewards and recognition system. Ultimately measures of contribution should feed an alternative metrics platform for community recognition. A researcher identifier, such as that encouraged by ORCID, would underpin this work. This talk will provide examples of ChemSpider contribution and how ORCID would be used.
