    Abstract

    Research Objects (ROs) provide a exible model to collate and describe the semantic context of science. In this position paper we describe how ROs can also provide a foundation for interoperability within RESTful architecture design, enabling the development of new services and clients alongside compatible enhancements to existing software including myExperiment. To illustrate this we introduce an infrastructure, known as the Wf4Ever Toolkit, providing services and clients to encapsulate, preserve, and re-use ROs.
