Astronomers are being drowned in data: facilities like ALMA currently provide datasets in the Gigabyte range, and increasing, while facilities like the LSST and the SKA will generate datasets large enough so that data download, even of the reduced datasets, will not be feasible. In this talk we will introduce the concept of Scientific Workflows, as software tools that allow for the easy exploration of both local and remote datasets and processing services, and of Research Objects, which encapsulate all relevant aspects of a scientific experiment, and allow for its quantitative and qualitative assessment, enable reuse with proper attribution, and linkage to publications, among others. The AstroTaverna plugin, with astronomy-specific for workflow creation, was also presented in this ALMA Weekly Seminar.
