A Semantic, Task-Centered Collaborative Framework for Science
This paper gives an overview of the Organic Data Science framework, a new approach for scientific collaboration that opens the science process and exposes information about shared tasks, participants, and other relevant entities. The framework enables scientists to formulate new tasks and contribute to tasks posed by others. The framework is currently in use by a science community studying the age of water, and is beginning to be used by others.
