Dear developers of Doit!
in a project within the German National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI) initiative (for the engineering sciences, https://nfdi4ing.de/de
), we are currently developing a portfolio of tools for the creation and documentation of reproducible simulation workflows.
For this purpose, we have created a repository (https://github.com/BAMresearch/NFDI4IngScientificWorkflowRequirements
), including an online documentation, to discuss how scientific workflows should be created/packaged/published in order to be as FAIR as possible.
We want to evaluate if existing workflow management systems provide the required features we have identified for our community, the engineering sciences.
So far, as source of information we have used the online documentation available for Doit, and implemented a "simple use case" representative of workflows in the engineering sciences to learn about Doit.
We hope for your contributions in correcting any misconceptions or misinterpretation.
We kindly ask you to review
(a) the example implementation of the simple use case,
(b) a manuscript we prepared to explain the results of our evaluation
and look forward to your feedback.
The example implementation of the simple use case can be found here:https://github.com/BAMresearch/NFDI4IngScientificWorkflowRequirements/tree/main/simple_use_case
The manuscript can be found here:https://bambund-my.sharepoint.com/:b:/g/personal/philipp_diercks_bam_de/EftPLEKg091GqAKNBi-euVYB0y2Y8j_oorutkV1Y_CLEQw?e=ovCf8f

On behalf of the team,
