The many Rs of e-Research


The 6 12 many Rs of e-Research…what else could/should we add to this (especially in the context of research objects and supporting reproducible research)?


  1. Forcing adjectives to begin with the same letter as what you are describing is arbitrary, infantile, limiting and simply belittles your work. You see this in kindergarten all the time – posters covered in alliterative nonsense for 3 year-olds.

    There are far better non-R words that describe e-research. Such as unpatronizing and bullshit-free.

    P.S. You missed out “rigorous”. Reprehensible.
