Paper Exploration

The Exploration platform of Qresp | Explorer is a GUI to explore and make available data on a per-publication basis. It provides a portal for the scientific community to access data sets, tools and workflows of a published scientific paper, enabling the reproducibility and validation of the paper results.

Access a Qresp Server Instance

This step allows the user to choose one/all Qresp instances to explore the curated papers.

Search/Filtered Search View

This step allows the user to filter their search results by entering any of the following:

  • General keyword search

  • Collection names

  • DOI of paper

  • Tags to the paper

  • Title of paper

  • Authors of the paper

  • Publication source

Alternatively, the user can click the search button to view all papers without applying any filter.

View Paper Information

This step allows the user to view and download files that generated the figure/table, datasets, scripts, tools, workflow. You can see how it looks like in the screnshot below.

Paper Details

We also provide explorers with extra features (listed below) when viewing charts. See image below, features are enclosed in a maroon box. Going left to right: Chart Features

Data Tree

The Data Tree button shows all the files in a tree format, i.e. it redirects the user to the source of the data.


The Workflow button shows the workflow which represents how the figure/table was created, i.e. a subgraph of the entire workflow generated by the user. It helps the user by keeping only the nodes that were involved in the creation of the chart.


This step allows the user to redirect to Globus (if available) to download the entire paper content using GridFTP.

The Jupyter Button redirects the user to the notebook file (previewed using nbviewer) provided by the user to create this chart, if available.
