- provenance (n.p. (Referenced in Yeo 2013, 7) ): [Data/e-Science] 2.1 A Working Definition of Provenance ¶ Provenance is a very broad topic that has many meanings in different contexts. The W3C Provenance Incubator Group developed a working definition of provenance on the Web: ¶ Provenance of a resource is a record that describes entities and processes involved in producing and delivering or otherwise influencing that resource. Provenance provides a critical foundation for assessing authenticity, enabling trust, and allowing reproducibility. Provenance assertions are a form of contextual metadata and can themselves become important records with their own provenance. (†411)
