We describe different stereotypes of Research Objects as a catalogue of patterns. A software pattern is defined as the abstraction from a concrete form which keeps recurring in specific non-arbitrary context 10; and in our case we focus in scientific-related resource aggregation situations. Patterns are convenient as they provide descriptions independent from the underneath implementation technology, and independent from the requirements of the domain that they are attempting to address. They become thus a catalogue of common situations that can be used by a knowledge expert in order to improve the knowledge acquisition process.
