Chapter 6: Uploading QSAR data
Preparing for upload
QsarDB repository welcomes the contribution of (Q)SAR/QSPR models related with a scientific paper that is either published or accepted for the publication or otherwise well documented and referenced.
The preferred data representation for the QsarDB repository is QsarDB archive format. Please make yourself familiar with QsarDB archive format and with tools that allow you prepare QDB archives. QsarDB also accepts QSAR Model Reporting Format (QMRF) documents as an additional source of model information.
Research groups will receive their own community to manage their collections of models. Each community and collection will be assigned with a persistent HDL identifiers (Handle System) for unique citing.
Please register online and/or contact us via e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help you to get started.
Once you have QDB archive file (or QMRF documents) ready, please Login to your account and click Submissions (under My Account) to start upload process.
