Brief project description:

The aims of SPECTRa-T are to investigate the needs of the academic chemistry research community with respect to how data associated with theses may best be managed and to facilitate routine and automatic extraction of domain-specific data, its transformation into metadata and ingest into institutional repositories. SPECTRa-T will realise these aims through the development of automated validation and indexing tools specific to crystallography, computational chemistry and synthetic chemistry, and providing interfaces with Open Standards-compliant repository platforms.
