Registering for a ChemSpider SyntheticPages account couldn’t be simpler, in less than 5 minutes you could be depositing your first SyntheticPage.
If you already have a ChemSpider account you will be able to log in to ChemSpider SyntheticPages (you might need to go to your profile and request the Submitter role, before you can submit your procedure).
If you are a new ChemSpider user you need to create your account by clicking on the Register link (at the top right-hand corner of the page).
The registration page asks you for all of the usual basic information.
Please note: It is very important that you supply a valid email address, as we will send your account activation email to this address, if you do not activate your account using the link in this email you will not be able to log in. If you use a mail filtering service you should take steps to set an exception for info-at-chemspider.com. Should you for any reason not receive the activation email please email us and we can activate your account.
When you’ve filled in the form, click Continue and wait to receive your activation email (this should be sent immediately).
Once you’ve received the activation email, click on the link, and you should be able to login to your new account. You will now open the Submission Help page.
Your Profile and requesting new roles
When you are logged in to your ChemSpider account, you will be able to see some extra menu options, one of which is My ChemSpider, which allows you to view and change your Profile.
Your profile page allows you to change your address and other contact details (to change your email address please contact us directly). You can also choose to opt in (or out) of ChemSpider and RSC mailing lists (note: these changes may take up to a week to propagate through our system), or change your password.
On your Profile page you are also given the option to request certain user roles. There are 4 basic roles that a ChemSpider SyntheticPages user can request:
- Beta tester – This role allows you to test new features before we release them
- Curator -
- Submitter – This gives you the ability to create/submit SyntheticPages. New users should have this role by default, if you have an older account you may need to request this role
- Service Subscriber – We currently do not have any webservices associated with ChemSpider but in the future you will be able to request this role to allow you to use our APIs.
If you wish to request a role please check the boxes next to the roles that you would like and then click, the Update button at the bottom of the profile page. A member of the ChemSpider team will review your request and respond as soon as possible (usually less than 24 h).
