SciMesh is a set of specifications that define the representation of scientific results in form of a knowledge graph. While many such data formats focus on simulation data, SciMesh explicitly includes physical specimens as first-class citizens. Thus, provenance of both data and specimens can be documented. SciMesh’s immediate purpose is to represent content of electronic lab notebooks (ELNs) for sharing scientific results across ELN instances. This way, collaboration partners running different ELNs (even different ELN software) can have a uniform view on their collective results without media disruptions.
