Workflow is a key technology for eScience. It enables scientific tools to be composed and the resulting workflows to be managed. Workflow and most other computing tools typically distinguish batch from interactive operation. This distinction is ill-suited to scientific experimentation which typically starts interactively and then may progress to batch operation for larger or repeated runs of experiments. In this paper we present a scientific workflow model which unifies batch and interactive operation. This supports seamless experimentation by scientists. The model is implemented in a web based environment through the Microsoft Windows Workflow system and features a novel model for workflow components.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
