Abstract

In this paper, we introduce xBook, an open-source framework that is designed for creating databases for heterogeneous scientific disciplines. Gathering and recording data is an essential part of scientific work. However, the challenges of the workflow are similar in the different fields. We want to support scientists in their work by offering a flexible and scalable framework that is intended to provide common functionalities to the inherited applications.
