    The Open Pharmacological Space platform aims to provide an integrated information space to advance pharmacological research in the area of drug discovery. Effective drug discovery requires comprehensive data coverage, i.e. integrating all available sources of pharmacology data. While many relevant data sources are available on the linked open cloud, their content needs to be combined with that of commercial data sets and the licensing of these commercial data sets respected. Additionally, pharmaceutical companies have built up their own extensive private data collections that they require to be included in their pharmacological data space. In this paper we discuss the challenges of incorporating private and commercial data into a linked data space: focusing on the modelling of these data sets and their interlinking. We also present the graph-based access control mechanism that ensures commercial and private data sets are only available to authorized users.
