Research Object is an emerging approach to the publication, and exchange of scholarly information on the Web.

Research Objects aim to improve reuse and reproducibility by:

  • Supporting the publication of more than just PDFs, making data, code, and other resources first class citizens of scholarship
  • Recognizing that there is often a need to publish collections of these resources together as one shareable, cite-able resource.
  • Enriching these resources and collections with any and all additional information required to make research reusable, and reproducible!

The eScience Lab is leading the community efforts of the Research Object implementation RO-Crate in collaboration with University of Queensland, in addition to developing RO-Crate in several projects.
