Chemical Validation and Standardization Platform (CVSP)

The Chemical Validation and Standardization Platform (CVSP)1 was developed during the Open PHACTS IMI project2 to process chemical structure files through tested validation and standardization protocols. The aim was to provide the community with rigorous analysis of their chemical structure files to ensure that data released into the public domain via online databases was pre-validated. The online CVSP site provided a useful means to test the rulesets and allow users to validate their structure files, but the standalone website was taken offline in November 2018. As a legacy, the codebase and ruleset has been evolved and applied to the ChemSpider deposition system at deposit.chemspider.com3 and the community discussions around appropriate standardisation of chemical structure files continue. The original code is also available from GitHub.4
