Title:Pace of Change: A Preliminary YesWorkflow Case Study
Author(s):Senseney, Megan
digital humanities
case study
Abstract:YesWorkflow (YW) is a grassroots initiative that “aims to provide a number of the benefits of using a scientific workflow management system without having to rewrite scripts and other scientific software.” YW represents an improvement to workflow modeling by allowing scientists and scholars to bypass traditional workflow engines by utilizing a small suite of modeling annotations that can be integrated as comments directly into an existing script. To date, YesWorkflow is still in its prototyping and development phase, but a handful of early adopters have already begun piloting the tool in a variety of scientific domains. To test the potential of utilizing YesWorkflow in a digital humanities context, this case study explores Professor Ted Underwood’s research outlined in the 2015 article “How Quickly do Literary Standards Change”, co-authored with Jordan Sellers and posted to FigShare with a link to the project’s GitHub repository.
