A workflow-centric research object bundles a workflow, the provenance of the results obtained by its enactment, other digital objects that are relevant for the experiment (papers, datasets, etc.), and annotations that semantically describe all these objects. In this paper, we propose a model to specify workflow-centric research objects, and show how the model can be grounded using semantic technologies and existing vocabularies, in particular the Object Reuse and Exchange (ORE) model and the…

A Pattern-Based Ontology for Describing Publishing Workflows
TLDR
The Publishing workflow Ontology (PWO) is introduced, an OWL 2 DL ontology for the description of generic workflows that is particularly suitable for formalising typical publishing processes such as the publication of articles in journals.
Modeling and Querying Scientific Workflow Provenance in the D-OPM
TLDR
The D-OPM is presented, a model that extends the Open Provenance Model with workflow-specific aspects that enables scientists to obtain detailed information about the origin of data resulting from past experiments, as well as about the process itself and its possible future executions.
The Publishing Workflow Ontology (PWO)
In this paper we introduce the Publishing Workflow Ontology (PWO), i.e., an OWL 2 DL ontology for the description of workflows that is particularly suitable for formalising typical publishing
PAV ontology: provenance, authoring and versioning
TLDR
The Provenance, Authoring and Versioning ontology (PAV), a lightweight ontology for capturing “just enough” descriptions essential for tracking the provenance, authoring and versioning of web resources, is presented.
A Semantic Approach to Workflow Management and Reuse for Research Problem Solving
TLDR
An ontological semantic approach to describing workflow control patterns, research workflow step patterns, and the meaning of the workflows in terms of domain knowledge is proposed, which can provide wide opportunities for semantic refinement, reuse, and composition of workflows.
Semantic Technologies and Text Analysis in Support of Scientific Knowledge Reuse
TLDR
This poster explores how the combination of semantic technologies and natural language processing can be used to enrich research objects with structured metadata aiming at enhancing their findability as a crucial aspect towards their reuse.
Describing semantic web applications through relations between data nodes
TLDR
Following an ontology building methodology based on the analysis of several existing Semantic Web Applications, an abstract, foundational model of data flow descriptions which focuses on the graph of relationships between “data objects” within the application, rather than the tasks and processes being implemented.
Towards a Human-Machine Scientific Partnership Based on Semantically Rich Research Objects
TLDR
This paper proposes extensions to research object representation models and presents novel methods and tools to enrich research object metadata through automatic means and validate the approach through the implementation of a recommender system that exploits the resulting metadata to facilitate research object discovery and reuse.
The Principles of Data Reuse in Research Infrastructures
TLDR
It is shown that conceptual modeling based on formal domain specifications still has good potential for data reuse in research infrastructures and can make heterogeneous data management and research significantly more effective and automated.
Towards computational research objects
TLDR
Computational Research Objects proposes a vision in which the content of the authors' digital libraries is autonomously conducting research, and objects that are composable and executable by machine are proposed.

Towards the Preservation of Scientific Workflows
TLDR
This work describes preservation challenges of scientific workflows, and suggests a framework to discuss the reproducibility of workflow results, and describes curation techniques that can be used to avoid the ‘workflow decay’ that occurs when steps of the workflow are vulnerable to external change.
MyExperiment: An ontology for e-Research
TLDR
This paper provides some motivation for an RO specification and briefly considers how existing domain-specifific ontologies might be integrated, and discusses the future direction of the myExperiment Ontology and how it will best support these ROs.
Janus: From Workflows to Semantic Provenance and Linked Open Data
TLDR
This paper proposes a model and architecture for semantic, domain-aware provenance, and demonstrates its usefulness in answering typical user queries, and discusses the additional benefits and the technical implications of publishing provenance graphs as a form of Linked Data.
A new approach for publishing workflows: abstractions, standards, and linked data
TLDR
This paper describes a new approach that addresses shortcomings and makes workflows more reusable and illustrates this approach using a complex workflow that is re-created from an influential publication that describes the generation of 'drugomes'.
Compiling abstract scientific workflows into Web service workflows
The authors present an approach for compiling "scientist-friendly" abstract workflow specifications into real-world executable workflows of Web service invocations, using a set of abstract-as-view
The Ontogenesis Knowledgeblog: Lightweight Publishing about Semantics, with Lightweight Semantic Publishing
TLDR
The experiments with using semantic web technology to replace the existing publishing process; the resource describing ontologies that are developed with this platform; and the implications that this may have for publishing in a semantic web frame- work are described.
Mind Your Metadata: Exploiting Semantics for Configuration, Adaptation, and Provenance in Scientific Workflows
TLDR
This work presents an approach where semantic metadata is generated as scientific data is being prepared, and then subsequently used to configure models and to customize them to the data, generating more accurate results.
The building and application of a semantic platform for an e-research society
TLDR
How the emerging society that is developing out of my-Experiment could use Semantic Web technologies to provide users with a significantly richer representation of their research and research processes to better support reproducible research is the main focus of the thesis.
Scientific workflow design 2.0: Demonstrating streaming data collections in Kepler
TLDR
This work will demonstrate how COMAD (Collection-Oriented Modeling and Design), an extension of conventional workflow design, addresses shortcomings in scientific workflow design by constructing and executing workflows from bioinformatics and geosciences in the Kepler system.
