Abstract

In this paper we describe our experience adopting the Research Object Bundle (RO-Bundle) format with BagIt serialization (BagIt-RO) for the design and implementation of 'tales' in the Whole Tale platform. A tale is an executable research object intended for the dissemination of computational scientific findings that captures information needed to facilitate understanding, transparency, and re-execution for review and computational reproducibility at the time of publication. We describe the Whole Tale platform and requirements that led to our adoption of BagIt-RO, specifics of our implementation, and discuss migrating to the emerging Research Object Crate (RO-Crate) standard.
