We are pleased to announce that, following the recent EPSRC renewal process for the National Chemical Database Service, the NCDS will be succeeded from 2019 by the National Physical Sciences Data-science Service (PSDS) as an EPSRC National Research Facility.
The new service, run jointly by the School of Chemistry at the University of Southampton and the Scientific Computing Department at the Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), will expand on the current database provision to include modern data science techniques such as machine learning and artificial intelligence. Read more about the new service here: https://www.southampton.ac.uk/chemistry/news/2018/11/new-national-research-facility-psds.page.
The Royal Society of Chemistry, as existing host of the NCDS, will be working with Southampton and STFC to ensure a smooth transition and continuity of access for users of the data resources, and overlap is likely to extend into 2019 as the PSDS develops its platform.
Further details about the new service will be communicated when available.
