The paper describes four ontologies for representing workflows in Research Objects, and includes examples and motivation scenarios.
The ontologies developed make use of and extend existing well known ontologies, namely the Object Reuse and Exchange (ORE) vocabulary, the Annotation Ontology (AO) and the W3C PROV ontology (PROVO). We illustrate how the ontologies can be utilized using a real-world scenario, in which scientists created a Workflow Research Object for an investigation on the Huntington's disease. We also present the tools we developed for managing Workflow Research Objects.
