Chapter 2: Background
In this chapter, we discuss the related work with respect to FAIR Digital Objects and Linked Data. We do so by looking through the lens of development of these technologies over time, including future directions.
Chapter 3: FAIR Digital Objects and Linked Data
To investigate RQ1 this chapter evaluates both Linked Data and FAIR Digital Object (FDO) as ways to realize the FAIR principles.
Evaluating FAIR Digital Object and Linked Data as distributed object systems
Journal article accepted in PeerJ Computer Science
Chapter 4: RO-Crate
This chapter introduces RO-Crate, a pragmatic method of packaging data alongside structured metadata that is inline with the FAIR principles. This has been implemented to investigate RQ2.
Chapter 5: Computational Workflows
In order to investigate RQ3, and considering important parts of the FAIR principles include Reuse and provenance, this chapter examines in closer details how FAIR Digital Objects and RO-Crate can be used with Computational Workflows.
Recording provenance of workflow runs with RO-Crate
