Scholarly Communication has evolved significantly, with increasing focus on Open Research, FAIR data sharing and community-developed open source methods. The concepts of authorship and citation are changing, as researchers are increasingly reusing and evolving common software tools and datasets. Yet with a growing amount of cloud compute power and open platforms available, reproducibility of computational analyses becomes more challenging, and not yet commonly included in peer review.

While recent advances in scientific workflows and provenance capture systems have improved on this situation, Research Objects propose a way to package, describe, publish, archive, explore and understand digital research outputs by reusing existing Web standards and formats. In this workshop we will explore recent advancements in Research Objects and research data packaging, and attempt to address the challenges remaining to increase Research Object uptake with data providers, researchers, infrastructures, publishers and other stakeholders.
