Why are so few databases eligible?

The most interesting databases, such as SRD 203 Web Thermo Tables and the ACerS-NIST Phase Equilibria Diagrams Database, aren't even free. They are the ones for which apps would receive the most use.

    Thanks for the comment, Will. This is our first app challenge, and we hope there will be more in the future. We decided to focus on freely available datasets from our Standard Reference Data collection for this challenge. You're right that we also have other datasets that are very popular with our stakeholders. However, the six eligible datasets for this challenge cover a range of frequently-accessed data in physics and chemistry fields. Please note - we invite participants to include additional freely available datasets in their apps, so you can use more than just the six eligible datasets (as long as you use at least one of them).
