Abstract [en]

Background: The Blue Obelisk movement was established in 2005 as a response to the lack of Open Data,Open Standards and Open Source (ODOSOS) in chemistry. It aims to make it easier to carry out chemistryresearch by promoting interoperability between chemistry software, encouraging cooperation between OpenSource developers, and developing community resources and Open Standards.

Results: This contribution looks back on the work carried out by the Blue Obelisk in the past 5 years and surveysprogress and remaining challenges in the areas of Open Data, Open Standards, and Open Source in chemistry.

Conclusions: We show that the Blue Obelisk has been very successful in bringing together researchers anddevelopers with common interests in ODOSOS, leading to development of many useful resources freely availableto the chemistry community
