Conference paper Open Access
In this paper we describe our experience adopting the Research Object Bundle (RO-Bundle) format with BagIt
serialization (BagIt-RO) for the design and implementation of "tales" in the Whole Tale
platform. A tale is an executable research object intended for the dissemination of
computational scientific findings that captures information needed to facilitate understanding,
transparency, and re-execution for review and computational reproducibility at the time of publication.
We describe the Whole Tale platform and requirements that led to our adoption of BagIt-RO, specifics
of our implementation, and discuss migrating to the emerging Research Object Crate (RO-Crate)
