Realizing the implementation of the OpenAIRE-CRIS-CERIF Guidelines in DSpace-CRIS

Supported by OpenAIRE, 4Science will implement the most recent version of the OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers in the open source software DSpace-CRIS which extends the DSpace repository platform by research data and information management.

Today we can already count more than 100 installations of DSpace-CRIS running in research institutions throughout Europe which emphasizes the potential when making their rich research information interlinked and findable in OpenAIRE.

The main objectives of this implementation are to:

  • realize the implementation of the latest OpenAIRE Guidelines for CRIS Managers in DSpace-CRIS
  • enable DSpace-CRIS platforms to expose research information to OpenAIRE

The implementation will be made open source and targets DSpace-CRIS releases version 5.10 and version 6.3. Once the implementation is ready in a first phase, the integration will be piloted in four research institutions in a second phase.

We will inform you about the progress of the implementation in follow-up blog posts.
