In year 2018 the third QsarDB workshop was held. The year culminated with the publication of a scientific article, which documented the "Best Practices for QSAR Model Reporting", which was also a summary of QsarDB team's experience in recent years on how QSAR models are documented in the scientific literature and also made suggestions for improving the current state-of-the-art.
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.
QsarDB has its roots in 2005, has been developed since 2007, and has been on Interent since 2008 and at the same time in active in-house use. The year 2012 was an important milestone in the development of QsarDB. For the first time, we presented the design of QSAR data formats at conferences. The transition to the new data repository platform and the new look of the data repository also remained in 2012. Then we also started collecting different visible milestones and sharing them with the general public.
