What an Open Science project does: eNanoMapper deliverables archived on ZENODO

eNanoMapper has ended. It was my first EC-funded project as PI. It was great to run a three year Open Science project at this scale. I loved the collaboration with the other partners, and like to thank Lucian and Markus for their weekly coordination of the project! Lucian also reflected on the project in this blog post. He describes the successful completion of the project, and we partly thank that to the uptake of ideas, solutions, and approaches by the NanoSafety Cluster (NSC) community. Many thanks to all NSC projects, including for example NANoREG who were very early adopters!

Our legacy is substantial, I think. I have blogged about some aspects in the past. The projects output includes RRegrs for scanning the regression model space, extensions of AMBIT for substances, tools on top of the APIs, visualizations with JavaScript, etc. Things have been done Open Source and you can find many repositories on GitHub, and we used Jenkins to autobuild various components, and not just source code, but also the eNanoMapper ontology. Several software releases are archived on ZENODO, the ontology is available from BioPortal, the Ontology Lookup Service, and AberOWL (and thanks to the operators for their support to get it properly online!).

Several publications have been published, along with many tutorials. On the website you could already access many of the deliverables of the project. And last week all public deliverables are now archived on ZENODO (HT to Lucian):


Next time, I want to see if we can get the deliverables published in, for example, Research Intentions and Outcomes journal.

Finally, I like to thanks everyone else if the Maastricht University team that worked on eNanoMapper: Cristian Munteanu, who was my first post-doc, Bart Smeets, Linda Rieswijk, Freddie Ehrhart, and part-time Nuno Nunes and Lars Eijssen. Without them I could not have completed our deliverables.
