Abstract:- Scientists with diverse expertise and located in different geographical locations may work together in order to achieve desired results. This collaboration is required in modern society as skill set required are spread multiple scientists. In order to utilize the diversified skills associated with human experts, it is essential to have a mechanism to share the skills and work in scientific inventions in collaborative fashion. In this context it is important to have a scientific workflow for automated communication and data management among the scientists involved in the collaboration. Many existing work benches are providing single user flows. They lack in providing multi-user environment where many scientists can work collaboratively. Recently Zhang et al. proposed a novel tool that facilitates collaborative scientific workflow among multiple scientists. The tool allows collaborative scientific workflow among scientists. In this paper we implement such tool practically as a prototype. The experimental results revealed that the tool is effective in providing workflow for scientific collaborations.
