Community (RO)

Scholarly Communication has evolved significantly in recent years, with an increasing focus on Open Research, data sharing and community-developed open source methods. The concepts of authorship and citation are changing, as researchers are increasingly reusing and evolving common software tools and datasets. Yet with a growing amount of cloud compute power and open platforms available, reproducibility of computational analyses becomes more challenging, and often overlooked in peer review. While recent advances in scientific workflows and provenance capture systems have improved on this situation, a question remains on how to publish, archive and explore digital research outputs, as academic authors and publishers remain focused on PDFs and the occasional CSV file, with the Web and Open Research often left to “best effort” rather than being the expected norm.

To this mean the community initiative Research Object (RO) have been proposed as a way to package and describe research outputs, data, methods, workflows, provenance and structured metadata, reusing existing Web standards and formats.

This Zenodo community welcomes submissions of preprints, Open Access articles and any FAIR Research Data packing formats (e.g. Research Objects, BagIt, COMBINE archive), covering topics including, but not limited to:

  • Research Object publication, archiving and curation

  • Research Object creation and manipulation

  • Research Object exploration and visualization

  • Research Object evolution, derivation and provenance

  • Handling Big Data in Research Objects

  • Data Archive packaging and formats

  • Rich metadata of research data and software

  • Alignments with community efforts

  • Citation and attribution of research data and software

  • Annotation and peer review of research data

  • Distributed data publication (blockchain, nanopublication)

  • Driving adoption within current scholarly communications ecosystem

  • Research Object model domain extensions

  • Research Object granular access control approaches

  • Research Object social impact metrics

  • Self-contained executable Research Objects (i.e., including execution environment description)

Submissions must use an open license, if you are not sure use Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 (for text, figures, data, metadata) or Apache License 2.0 (for software, workflows, scripts).

Want your upload to appear in this community?

  • Click the button above to upload a record directly to this community.
    To add one of your existing records to the community, edit the record, add this community under the "Communities" section, save, and finally publish.
  • The community curator will then be notified to either accept or reject your upload (see community curation policy below).
  • If your upload is rejected by the curator, it will still be available on Zenodo, just not in this community.
