Agile Research Data Management with Open Source: LinkAhead

Daniel Hornung, Florian Spreckelsen, Thomas Weiß

2023-03-28   Data Management Software

Research data management (RDM) in academic scientific environments increasingly enters the focus as an important part of good scientific practice and as a topic with big potentials for saving time and money. Nevertheless, there is a shortage of appropriate tools, which fulfill the specific requirements in scientific research. We identified where the requirements in science deviate from other [...]


Betty’s (Re)Search Engine: A client-based search engine for research software stored in repositories.

Vasiliy Seibert, Andreas Rausch, Stefan Wittek

2023-03-09   Data Management Software

Promoting research, without providing the source code that was used to conduct the research, means a greater effort for every researcher down the line. Existing solutions that aim to make research software FAIR [1], fail to provide a wholesome solution, for they do not sufficiently consider already existing research software stored on platforms like GitHub or organizational GitLabs. We therefore [...]


Towards Improved Findability of Energy Research Software by Introducing a Metadata-based Registry

Stephan Ferenz, Astrid Nieße

2023-03-01   Data Infrastructure, Data Management Software

Research software in the energy domain becomes increasingly important for the analysis, simulation, and optimization of energy systems and supports design decisions in the required transition of energy systems to tackle the climate crisis. To make energy research software (ERS) more findable, it should be described with metadata following the FAIR (findable, accessible, interoperable, and [...]


Beyond Data Literacy in Engineering Education

Samira Khodaei, Mihail Padev, Anas Abdelrazeq, et al.

2023-01-24   Data Ethics, Data Literacy

Data literacy is a key ingredient for engineering education [14]. Through digital transformation, more data are generated in different scientific fields that will be interpreted. As a highly applicable scientific field, mechanical engineering is predestined to integrate data literacy into the higher education curriculum [17]. However, current frameworks rarely consider ethical questions, [...]


Evaluation of tools for describing, reproducing and reusing scientific workflows

Philipp Diercks, Dennis Gläser, Ontje Lünsdorf, et al.

2022-12-06   Data Management Software

In the field of computational science and engineering, workflows often entail the application of various software, for instance, for simulation or pre- and postprocessing. Typically, these components have to be combined in arbitrarily complex workflows to address a specific research question. In order for peer researchers to understand, reproduce and (re)use the findings of a scientific [...]


plotID - a toolkit for connecting research data and visualization

Martin Hock, Hannes Mayr, Manuela Richter, et al.

2022-09-05   Data Management Software

The highest amount of published information on paper is contained in visualizations such as 2D and or 3D plots. Supporting a generic research workflow, plotID provides tools that can a) create and anchor a reference (ID code, URL,...) for and b) package figures, data, code and parameters used to create the figure. The code is provided as tools with small impact, that need to be used [...]
