Description/Abstract

The myExperiment Virtual Research Environment has successfully adopted a Web 2.0 approach in delivering a social web site where scientists can discover, publish and curate scientific workflows and other artefacts. While it shares many characteristics with other Web 2.0 sites, myExperiment’s distinctive features to meet the needs of its research user base include support for credit, attributions and licensing, fine control over privacy, a federation model and the ability to execute workflows. myExperiment now has over 2000 registered users, with thousands more downloading public content, and the largest public collection of workflows, for systems which include Microsoft’s Trident. Created in close collaboration with its research users, myExperiment gives important insights into emerging research practice. As it moves into its second phase we see new forms of sharable Research Object which challenge traditional scholarly publishing and provide an important basis for data-intensive science. To support this, semantic technologies are increasingly coming into play to maximise the potential for reuse and repurposing of experiments.
