dc.description.abstractIn the last few decades, data-driven methods have come to dominate many fields of scientific inquiry. Open data and open-source software have enabled the rapid implementation of novel methods to manage and analyze the growing flood of data. However, it has become apparent that many scientfic fields exhibit distressingly low rates of repeatability and reproducibility. Although there are many dimensions to this issue, we believe that there is a lack of formalism used when describing end-to-end published results, from the data source to the analysis to the final published results. Even when authors do their best to make their research and data accessible, this lack of formalism reduces the clarity and effciency of reporting, which contributes to issues of reproducibility. Data provenance aids both repeatability and reproducibility through systematic and formal records of the relationships among data sources, processes, datasets, publications and researchers.en_US
