RFC: An open container for reproducible portable publications


We’ve been working on a proposal for representing reproducible publications as a bundle of accessible files (manuscript + data sheets + static assets). This format relies on existing standards where possible (e.g. JATS for representing manuscripts) and is designed to be a submission format publishers accept (our partner eLife to be the first one). That way authors are able to create a standardised reproducible publication in Stencila (or a similar tool) and submit to a publisher as is, without limitations.

Please add comments directly in document (keep them short) or use this post as a general discussion thread.

Thank you for your help!
