The open source software Qresp “Curation and Exploration of Reproducible Scientific Papers” facilitates the organization, annotation and exploration of data presented in scientific papers.
Qresp may be used to both curate and explore data presented in scientific papers or just explore curated scientific papers. Curation and exploration are implemented in 4 steps:
- Paper Organization
- The user organizes data presented in a scientific paper as a collection of datasets, charts, scripts, tools and notebooks.
- Metadata Generation
- Metadata Collection
- The document-oriented database collects the generated metadata. The database is maintained by the user or the user’s institution.
