I am proud to announce the updated Research Object Bundle 1.0, a
researchobject.org specification:


This specification defines RO Bundle, a ZIP-based file format that
bundles resources which when aggregated form an identifiable
conceptual work; say a collection of datasets resulting from a
scientific experiment, or a gathering of logs and outputs from a
particular command line execution.

This specification is accompanied by two APIs for creating and
managing RO Bundles:

Java: https://github.com/wf4ever/robundle/
Ruby: https://github.com/myGrid/ruby-ro-bundle

The RO Bundle include a manifest, aggregated resources (which might be
included as files in the ZIP or as external URIs), their annotations
and provenance for the purposes of exporting, archiving, publishing
and transferring the Research Object as a whole.

The structure of the ZIP-file is decided by the user and/or
application, except for the reserved paths for the mediatype, JSON-LD
manifest and annotations.

RO Bundle relies on several existing RDF vocabularies :
 * OAI-ORE - aggregation
 * PROV - general provenance
 * PAV - contributions and sources
 * ORCID - identifying contributors
 * FOAF - describing contributors
 * OA - annotation on aggregated resources
 * RO - research object model
