The Design and Realisation of the myExperiment Virtual Research Environment for Social Sharing of Workflows.
Future Generation Computer Systems, 25, .
In this paper we suggest that the full scientific potential of workflows will be achieved through mechanisms for sharing and collaboration, empowering scientists to spread their experimental protocols and to benefit from those of others. To facilitate this process we have designed and built the myExperiment Virtual Research Environment for collaboration and sharing of workflows and experiments. In contrast to systems which simply make workflows available, myExperiment provides mechanisms to support the sharing of workflows within and across multiple communities. It achieves this by adopting a social web approach which is tailored to the particular needs of the scientist. We present the motivation, design and realisation of myExperiment.
