  "abstract": "<p><strong>Web-version:</strong> <a href=\"https://w3id.org/ro/crate/1.0\">https://w3id.org/ro/crate/1.0</a></p>\n\n<p>This document specifies a method, known as <em>RO-Crate</em> (Research Object Crate), of organizing file-based data with associated metadata, using linked data principles, in both human and machine readable formats, with the ability to include additional domain-specific metadata.</p>\n\n<p>The core of RO-Crate is a JSON-LD file, the <em>RO-Crate Metadata File</em>, named <code>ro-crate-metadata.jsonld</code>. This file contains structured metadata about the dataset as a whole (the <em>Root Data Entity</em>) and, optionally, about some or all of its files. This provides a simple way to, for example, assert the authors (e.g. people, organizations) of the RO-Crate or one its files, or to capture more complex provenance for files, such as how they were created using software and equipment.</p>\n\n<p>While providing the formal specification for RO-Crate, this document also aims to be a practical guide for software authors to create tools for generating and consuming research data packages, with explanation by examples.</p>",
