2017 was a year of normal technical development, QSAR models from 14 articles were digitalized and uploaded to the QsarDB repository, also the repository back-end was upgraded, etc.
Besides other activities, like the second QsarDB workshop, 2016 was an interesting year when, at the beginning of the year, in February, collaboration with Taylor & Francis reached to the point where QSAR models published in their journal articles can be automatically linked with the QsarDB repository.
In addition to active development work, digitalization of QSAR models and many presentations, a research article was published that describes the QsarDB data repository and its design principles as a whole.
2014 witnesses many conference presentations, the first workshop (training school), and also the integration of QsarDB repository with the DOI system. In 2014, a scientific article describing the QsarDB data format was published.
This year was special for QsarDB for at least two reasons. The first one is certainly an article in Journal Chemosphere that linked a QSAR model to the repository with a unique persistent digital identifier (HDL). The second was a funding from the EU Regional Development Fund, which significantly boosted activities over the next three years.
