We are pleased to announce a new facility in Galaxy for sharing and publishing 
Galaxy workflows via the myExperiment social website, which is the leading 
social website for scientific workflow sharing.  myExperiment can now be 
accessed easily while you're using the Galaxy servers - you can export your 
workflows to myExperiment to store and share them, and import Galaxy workflows 
from myExperiment. This means you can:

- Share Galaxy workflows in a controlled way (e.g. within a project), publish 
them with a stable myExperiment reference for your papers (which is linked-data 
compatible), and use myExperiment's discovery facilities to find more Galaxy 
workflows as content grows.

- Use the social website features directly to document, tag and discuss 
workflows, add licensing, credit and attribution, and to bundle your Galaxy 
workflows with associated data, documents, presentations etc into myExperiment 
"packs" for ease of reuse and preservation.

- Benefit from a central workflow website with a broad community, which means 
you can manage workflows for multiple Galaxy installations, attract visitors to 
your workflows and research, and network with others.

Instructions are below and in more detail on 
http://wiki.myexperiment.org/index.php/Galaxy_Help  This new facility is 
brought to you by a myExperiment-Galaxy collaboration and will increase in 
value as more Galaxy workflows are uploaded so we encourage you to do so - we 
hope you find it useful and we welcome feedback (contact details are on the 
help page).

Best regards

1. When using Galaxy you can import Galaxy workflows from myExperiment by 
choosing "Upload or import workflow" in Galaxy's workflow menu, then the new 
"Visit myExperiment" link at the bottom of the page. Within the myExperiment 
interface you can then view a Galaxy workflow and select "Import this workflow 
into Galaxy". Some Galaxy tutorial workflows are currently available to help 
you try this out.

2. To export Galaxy workflows to myExperiment you'll first need a myExperiment 
username and password, then you'll be able to upload Galaxy workflows and also 
make them visible to others if you wish.  To create a username and password go 
to http://www.myexperiment.org/ and register. Having a username and password 
enables you to benefit from all the features of the site.

3. To export a Galaxy workflow to myExperiment select "Download or Export" from 
Galaxy's workflow menu, enter your myExperiment username and password in the 
"Export to myExperiment" section and click the "Export" button. Exported 
workflows are set to be "Private" by default but you can make them visible 
publicly or to friends, groups etc by clicking on "Click here to view the 
workflow on myExperiment" and changing the Sharing settings.

4. Visit http://www.myexperiment.org/ at any time to change settings, add 
further description, tags, license etc, and to create "packs". You can also 
create and administer groups, link up with friends and network with other 
workflow users.
