Collaboration between Author and Reuser

Whenever a reuse instance is submitted, the author can collaborate with the reuser depending upon the state of the instance.

Successful Instance

If the reuse instance is successful, then the author can review it and decide if it should be published. The author can send a note to the reuser when he publishes the article.

The reuser will get an email with the note from the author that their reuse instance has been published.

Unsuccessful Instance

If the reuse instance is unsuccessful, then the author can discuss the issues and challenges faced during reusing or reproducing the research output with the reuser through a direct conversation channel on the application. The author can send notes to the reuser, and the reuser will receive them by email which he can reply to.

Both the author and the reuser can add attachments to make their discussions easier. There is no restriction on the type of attachment to send.

The attachments can be downloaded easily by clicking on the links of the author and reuser replies.

This leads to a collaboration between the author and the reuser on the Unsuccessful Instance. When the author feels that the issues has been resolved, he can publish the reuse instance anytime.

After the instance has been published, the reuser will get an email notifying them.

The collaboration history will be visible to everyone in the author’s Reuse Recipe page for people to understand the process and help them further to troubleshoot the challenges faced during reusing or reproducing the research output.
