Researchobject.org aims to map the landscape of initiatives and activity in the development of Research Objects, an emerging approach to the publication, and exchange of scholarly information on the Web. Research Objects aim to improve reuse and reproducibility by:
- Supporting the publication of more than just PDFs, making data, code, and other resources first class citizens of scholarship
- Recognizing that there is often a need to publish collections of these resources together as one shareable, cite-able resource.
- Enriching these resources and collections with any and all additional information required to make research reusable, and reproducible!
Research objects are not just data, not just collections, but any digital resource that aims to go beyond the PDF for scholarly publishing!
Researchobject.org is developed for the research community, by the research community. Currently led by Carole Goble and her team in the eScience Lab at the University of Manchester, researchobject.org is supported by members of the Research Object community, to disseminate knowledge about Research Objects, their concept, adoption, and other latest developments.
