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.

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
