MaRDMO – Document and Query Interdisciplinary Workflows Using the MaRDI Portal.


The Mathematical Research Data Initiative (MaRDI) has set itself the goal of making information about mathematical objects, e.g. algorithms or models, available in a structured and easy-to-find manner in the form of a knowledge graph. The linking of all these objects with concrete questions, input and output data, software and hardware is done in specific workflows. To achieve reproducibility of these often interdisciplinary workflows, detailed documentation is required. For this purpose, a standardized template for workflow documentation was developed in the MaRDI Project, which can be completed by answering a simple questionnaire in the Research Data Management Organiser (RDMO). Workflows recorded in this way can be stored locally or published, through the MaRDMO Plugin, directly on the MaRDI Portal. In addition, central information of the documentations is integrated into the MaRDI Knowledge Graph. Next to the pure documentation of workflows, MaRDMO offers the possibility to retrieve existing workflows from the MaRDI Knowledge Graph in order to provide researchers with suggestions for future projects and to document workflows based on these suggestions. Thus, MaRDMO creates a community-driven knowledge loop that could help to overcome the replication crisis.
