## Research Objects

Scholarly Communication has evolved significantly in recent years, with an
increasing focus on Open Research, FAIR data sharing and community-developed
open source methods. A question remains on how to publish, archive and explore
digital research outputs.

A number of initiatives have begun to explore how to package and describe
research outputs, data, methods, workflows, provenance and structured metadata,
reusing existing Web standards and formats.

Such efforts aim to address the challenges of structuring multi-part research
outcomes with their context, handling distributed and living content and
porting and safely exchange what we collectively can call “Research Objects”
between platforms and between researchers.

## Call for Papers

In the workshop RO2019 we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects
and publishing of research data with peer-reviewed presentations, invited
talks, short demos, lightning talks and break-out sessions to further build
relationships across scientific domains and RO practitioners.

RO2019 welcomes submissions of academic abstracts (~ 1-2 pages) and
short research articles (~ 4-8 pages) on cross-cutting case studies or
specific research on topics including, but not limited to:

   FAIR metrics; platforms, infrastructure and tools; lifecycles; access control
   and secure exchange; examples of exploitation and application; executable
   containers; metadata, packaging and formats; credit, attribution and peer
   review; dealing with scale and distribution; driving adoption within current
   scholarly communications and alignments with community efforts; and
   domain-specific and cross-domain Research Objects.

## Submitting

Submitted abstracts and articles can be in a range of open formats (e.g. HTML,
ePub) and are particularly encouraged to be submitted in a FAIR research data
packing format.

Accepted articles will be included in the IEEE eScience 2019
proceedings. Submitted preprints will, upon acceptance, be made available as
Green Open Access on the RO2019 website with DOI links to the Zenodo record and
(where applicable) the published IEEE proceeding article.

It is a requirement that at least one author of each accepted submission
attends the RO2019 workshop at the IEEE eScience 2019 conference, where
registration fees applies.

RO2019 encourages open peer review, and recommend that reviewers
are named and attributed; however reviewers may be anonymous if so
desired. Reviewers are welcome to publish their reviews using the
same guidelines as the research articles.
