For the past few months a LOT of curating has been happening on ChemSpider. The majority of this has been conducted by a small number of committed individuals. Tens of thousands of identifiers have been removed, names have been added and the overall quality of the records has improved dramatically.

ANY registered user of ChemSpider can participate in curating the identifiers on ChemSpider. Howeve, there is also a curators role and now that we have rigorously tested the process with a group of individuals and for tens of thousands of actions we are inviting people to join our team of curators. If we all apply ourselves collectively to enhancing the quality of what is on the database then it will benefit everybody.
