  4. 4. Why Research Objects? • Process preservation: URIs/DOIs for referencing resources. • Reusability of any part of the RO • Repeatability /Reproducibility: redeployment of the method • Traceability and error detection. • Attribution: able to cite data and publications of the RO • Understandability: Links between data, results and annotations. • Curation: by explicitly exposing the methods of the experiment.

  11. 11. Eating our own dog food • Reproducibility is not only an issue in the Life Sciences. • In computer science we: • Run experimental evaluations. • Reuse previous algorithms and tools. • Build pipelines for processing the inputs and obtain our results. http://petfoodadvisor.net/wp-content/uploads/2013/02/Cheap-Dog-Food.jpg •WHY DON’T WE USE RESEARCH OBJECTS? Research Objects in Scientific Publications 11
  12. 12. How? Minimal step by step example • When writing a paper about a tool/algorithm/evaluation/survey 1. Create a permanent URL (purl, DOI, etc) for the Research Object 2. Distinguish between the resources that have been used from those that have been generated. • A result was generated using/testing an algorithm/tool/framework. • An ontology was created from the CQs and ORSD of the domain. • A survey was performed by looking at these papers in the bibliography. 3. Describe the relationships among the resources and their dependencies. 4. Describe the resources in the RO (AO/OA, DC, schema, FOAF) 5. Add all the descriptions to a file (manifest) 6. State that the manifest is describing the purl of the RO. 7. You are done. Research Objects in Scientific Publications 12
  13. 13. Annotating RDF/RDF-a can be exhausting • Cost vs benefit. • It takes time, BUT • All your resources become easily referenceable: • You provide context to your research • You ease the task of reusing your software/papers • • http://i3.kym-cdn.com/entries/icons/original/000/006/725/desk%20flip.jpg There are tools to ease the task. You don’t need to annotate everything! • The more you annotate, the better your results will be understood. Research Objects in Scientific Publications 13

  15. 15. rohub.linkeddata.es •Many approaches exist for making your stuff persistent •Figshare, Purl, Datacite, RO Portal, etc. •Rohub.linkeddata.es is a page (under development) for pointing at the resources created in ROs of the OEG. •3 ROs at the moment. •Content negotiation (TTL and more) •Annotated in RDF-a •ROs as web pages with purls! •http://rohub.linkeddata.es/ro-svmworkflow/ (http://purl.org/net/svm-opt-research-object) http://esp.habitants.org/campana_cero_desalojos/jornadas_mu ndiales_cero_desalojos__por_el_derecho_al_habitat_2013/work_in_progress Research Objects in Scientific Publications 15
