In the digital world, software development is the domain in which the management of versions, also called versioning, was first introduced and became common praxis. Versioning mechanisms usually run in the backend of web environments for data security reasons. However, what is equally important is the use of versioning as a mechanism for evidence and reference for the users. When users collaboratively create research data on web platforms, a version history enables others to verify and reanalyse the data. Moreover, versioning mechanisms could support scholars to make research more transparent and discursive. Following this reasoning, this paper discusses versioning as performed by version control systems and investigates how this kind of versioning can be extended to serve scholarly practice.
