Digital Objects (e.g., data, software) and formal knowledge representations (e.g., structured metadata) form the two sides of the Linked Open Science coin: scientists want to exchange their data as Open Science material, possibly embedding it into RO-Crates, while they also want to share their findings and knowledge in a formalised representation, possibly deploying Knowledge Graph representations. What is the meeting point between data distributed via RO-Crates and that one part of a Knowledge Graph? Do RO-Crates and Knowledge Graphs serve different types of data or do they complement each other? What would be the dis/advantages of having Knowledge Graphs in RO-Crates or RO-Crates as nodes in Knowledge Graphs? In this workshop, we will first introduce RO-Crates and then have a round table open discussion to compare the potentials of the different approaches for capturing the data and the knowledge of the scientific world.
RO-Crate is a community effort to practically achieve FAIR packaging of research objects (digital objects like data, methods, software) with structured metadata. RO-Crate uses well-established Web standards and FAIR principles. For common metadata representations, RO-Crate builds on schema.org, a mature and general mark-up vocabulary used by search engines including Google Dataset Search. RO-Crate is adapted by many EU/EOSC projects as a pragmatic implementation of the FAIR Digital Objects vision.
