Abstract. Despite the internet’s dynamic and collaborative nature, sci-entists continue to produce grant proposals, lab notebooks, data files, conclusions etc. that stay in static formats or are not published online and therefore not always easily accessible to the interested public. Be-cause of limited adoption of tools that seamlessly integrate all aspects of a research project (conception, data generation, data evaluation, peer-reviewing and publishing of conclusions), much effort is later spent on reproducing or reformatting individual entities before they can be repur-posed independently or as parts of articles. We propose that workflows- performed both individually and collabora-tively- could potentially become more efficient if all steps of the research cycle were coherently represented online and the underlying data were formatted, annotated and licensed for reuse. Such a system would ac-celerate the process of taking projects from conception to publication stages and allow for continuous updating of the data sets and their in
