RO Advisory Kickoff Slides

  1. 1. Sean Bechhofer University of Manchester @seanbechhofer RO Advisory Kick Off Research Objects 1
  2. 2. Why? Publication • Publications are about argumentation: Convince the reader of the validity of a position [Mesirov] – Reproducible Results System: facilitates enactment and publication of reproducible research. • Results are reinforced by reproducability [De Roure] – Explicit representation of method. • Verifiability as a key factor in scientific discovery. J. Mesirov Accessible Reproducible Research Science 327(5964), p.415-416, 2010 D. De Roure and C. Goble Anchors in Shifting Sand: the Primacy of Method in the Web of Data Web Science Conference 2010, Raleigh NC, 2010 Stodden et. al. Reproducible Research: Addressing the Need for Data and Code Sharing in Computational Science Computing in Science and Engineering 12(5), p.8-13, 2010

  7. 7. • An aggregation object that bundles together experimental resources that are essential to a computational scientific study or investigation. – An identity – A suite of annotations (which can be about this bundle and/or the resources of the bundle) – Aggregated Resources:  data used  results produced in an experiment study;  (computational) methods employed to produce and analyse that data;  people involved in the investigation. Research Objects 7
  8. 8. Annotations • Essential to the understanding and interpretation of the scientific outcomes captured by a Research Object as well as the reuse of the resources within it. – Provenance information about the experiments, the study or any other experimental resources – Evolution information about the Research Object and its resources, – Descriptions of computational methods – Dependency information or settings about the experiment executions 8

  10. 10. Vocabularies and Domains • Thinking to date has been focused on “workflow-centric” ROs (cf. Wf4Ever presentation to come) – Vocabularies covering, e.g. workflow abstractions and provenance information • Need focus on other use cases, domains and problems – RO Advisory Board! 10
