- 1. University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
This extended abstract, submitted to the Workshop on Research Objects 2019 (RO2019), being held in conjuction with the 15th International Conference on eScience (eScience 2019), discusses the state of citation for software and for data, and explains challenges in citing more complex research objects, including Research Objects. It includes a proposal for how current Research Objects and their contents can be cited, and additionally proposes Active Research Objects to make this easier.
