Good morning all!
In a similar, though not identical, vein, may I suggest that one or more of you consider FAIRsharing within the context of this work? A number of Chemistry resources are collected within FAIRsharing (, and you are welcome to become maintainers and contribute to this collection. This collection was originally created by Egon Willighagen as a set of “best practice” standards and repositories for Chemistry related to a now-archived GO FAIR group that was working in concert with this IG.
As it says in the record: “A curated collection of standards, databases and policies covering all aspects of chemistry, providing a curated view of FAIRsharing chemistry resources. Although this collection was initiated within the GO FAIR Implementation Network for Chemistry (and in tandem with the Chemistry Research Data Interest Group (CRDIG) of the Research Data Alliance), it has grown beyond this project. Any domain experts who would like to contribute to this collection, within the RDA or beyond, are welcome to claim and help maintain it. “
Communities utilise our collections to create live, tailored views (including the graphs of relationships among them) of the standards and/or databases to help educate their community and promote the resources most relevant to them. As you build your zotero collection of references, it may be that it could be well complemented by this FAIRsharing collection.
If you’re interested in updating this collection within the context of your recent work, please see the following link for getting started with FAIRsharing:
Alternatively, please just let me know if you have any questions!
All the best,

I am glad to report that the collection of references on FAIR Chemistry is now up on Zotero at

Thanks so much for this. Give the number of articles it probably does make sense to put this on Zotero (my preference).
Thoughts from others on this list?

I’ve set up alerts running on Scifinder and Scopus for articles dealing with various aspects of FAIR and chemistry and related disciplines.
The attached list is very messy but it is a start.
It might be easier to create a shared folder on Mendeley or Zotero.
What do you think?
