    <description descriptionType="Abstract">&lt;p&gt;&lt;strong&gt;Web-version:&lt;/strong&gt; &lt;a href="https://w3id.org/ro/crate/1.0"&gt;https://w3id.org/ro/crate/1.0&lt;/a&gt;&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;This document specifies a method, known as &lt;em&gt;RO-Crate&lt;/em&gt; (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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;The core of RO-Crate is a JSON-LD file, the &lt;em&gt;RO-Crate Metadata File&lt;/em&gt;, named &lt;code&gt;ro-crate-metadata.jsonld&lt;/code&gt;. This file contains structured metadata about the dataset as a whole (the &lt;em&gt;Root Data Entity&lt;/em&gt;) 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.&lt;/p&gt;

&lt;p&gt;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.&lt;/p&gt;</description>
