This version fully support the use cases for a modern repository and RIMS / CRIS system. It is target to new users as migration from previous version still require custom data extraction and transformation. With DSpace-CRIS 7, 4Science is delighted to announce a number of key enhancements which improve the flexibility, integration, data quality and accuracy of DSpace-CRIS: Full ORCID v3 integration (push/pull information) Integration with dozen external data sources, including commercial ones, to retrieve bibliographic and bibliometric data Support for decentralised management, self-service researcher profile management and approval workflows Aligned to the latest OpenAIRE Guidelines for Literature Repositories, Data Archives and CRIS Managers Data quality tools ensure that your information is always complete and accurate These enhancements with DSpace-CRIS 7 build on the new DSpace 7 architecture, featuring a new Angular UI and a fully-featured REST API. PLEASE BE SURE TO USE THE CORRESPONDING ANGULAR RELEASE IN 4Science/dspace-angular Architecture Aligned with DSpace 7 full REST API with a documented contract modern Angular SPA UI Authentication DSpace-CRIS can be integrated with several Identity Provider ranging from Shibboleth, LDAP, OpenID Connect, ORCID to a local username/password (encrypted) database Data collection Submission process for all the entities in the OpenAIRE CRIS information space (Publications, Patents, Products, People, OrgUnits, Projects, Fundings, Equipments, Journals) Import from external sources available for most entity types: Fundings from OpenAIRE, Patents from the European Patent Office, OrgUnits from Sherpa/RoMEO (publisher), People from ORCID, Publications from ORCID, PubMed, CrossRef, Scopus, Web of Science, OpenAIRE, arXiv, NASA/ADS, CiNii, Scielo, VuFind, PubMed Europe), Journals from Sherpa/RoMEO Automatic enrichment of manual submission looking up to the external providers by identifiers Bulk operations (creation, update, delete) via xls on all the entities with easy cross-linking (any identifier can be used to link any kind of entities, i.e. publications to a person via an ORCID, staffno, etc) and future reference (link to an entity that is not yet in the system via an identifier that will be resolved later). Bulk operations are validated against your data model, submission configuration and security (mandatory and available fields, relations, etc.) Publication Metadata extraction from Scholarly PDF via machine vision (based on the Grobid project) Receive automatic alert from compatible providers (OpenAIRE, ORCID) about missing publications or wrong/incomplete data on existing records Automatically import new publications for your researcher from Scopus and Web of Science Grab bibliometrics data for your publications and authors from Scopus and Web of Science Manage complex structured data as nested metadata and ternary relations Data presentation define sections and entry points to explore your repository composing configurable widget such as sorted list of objects (Most viewed, Most cited, Recent additions, etc.), infographics for key indicators (number of publications, researchers, etc.), search facets, browse indexes, advanced search form and branding messages easily organise your data without code change in tabs and boxes include references to linked entities in any entity page (i.e. the list of publications of a researcher, the list of funding received by a project, etc.) present search results and linked entities in a graphical way with pie, line, bar charts export your researchers information in professional looking PDF/RDF CV export details about your other entities (Funding, Projects, Organisations, etc.) in PDF/RDF fact sheets export publications data in citation formats (APA, Chicago, MLA, etc.) via CSL show the bibliometrics collected for your publications and authors include alternative metrics information for your publication from AltMetric and/or Dimension ORCID and authenticated ORCID are properly displayed in researcher profiles and linked records (publications, projects, etc.) granular visibility at metadata level based on contextual rules (financial data of a funding visible only to the investigators involved in the * project, personal contact data only to HR people, etc.) rich and extensible usage reports are available for all the entities including direct data (visualization and download) and aggregated data about the linked objects (visualization of researcher's publications, etc.).

DSpace administration issues: the community admin patch
2005, Donohue, Tim, Bollini, Andrea
A large or medium repository, but also a small repository in some special cases, needs to allow a more decentralized management of administrative activities as: creation of new communities, creation of new collections, management of submitter and workflow groups, editing of published items, access policies and so on. Until now, DSpace allows only a partial decentralization of this functionalities thought into the role of COLLECTION ADMIN. After highlighting these needs, we will introduce the new role of COMMUNITY ADMIN and the changes made to the COLLECTION ADMIN role by our patch so to fix most of the previous needs. We will talk about the "long history" of this patch, made for the first time by Andrea against the 1.2 series and next kept updated, bug free and XMLUI aware by Tim from the 1.4 series. This "pass the buck", from Andrea to Tim and again together with some other people, shows how useful is for anyone to share results, experiences and customizations with the community so to get them back improved, reducing the cost of locale maintenance, debug and bug fix. We will close the presentation with the good news of the inclusion of this patch in the DSpace codebase for both XMLUI and JSPUI interfaces and also giving some notices about possible improvements in the next future.

DSpace-CRIS@HKU: Achieving Visibility with a CERIF Compliant Open Source System
2014-07-02, Mornati, Susanna, Mennielli, Michele, Bollini, Andrea
Abstract The CRIS now at the University of Hong Kong, “HKU Scholars Hub” (the Hub), began as a means to provide visibility to HKU research, people, and their expertise. It now also acts as a tool for management, evaluation and visualization of HKU research. The expected addition of CERIF compliancy to DSpace-CRIS in May 2014, will further enhance the Hub's utility for visibility, collaboration, and benchmarking.
New functionalities of the euroCRIS' DSpace-CRIS Repository
2016, Bollini, Andrea
The euroCRIS' Repository is based on a DSpace-CRIS installation to support the collection and management of different contents related to the Organisation's activities. The project has started in 2015 mainly focusing on the papers and presentations submitted by euroCRIS' Members for the events but always managing the publications information in a proper CERIF way with people, events and orgunits interlinked to provide rich information. All the past contributions have been added to the system and linked to the different authors, providing also the opportunity to link the Repository to the authors' ORCID profiles.

This article shows the reengineering of the persistence tier of the open source software DSpace, to introduce a lower coupling in its software layers. The prototype was made using design patterns and standards from J2EE world: Domain Store, Session Façade, Application Service, JPA were also introduced for a technological upgrade of the platform. The research and development activity aimed at this goal was accomplished in a stage offered by CILEA to achieve a degree in Computer Science Engineering, an opportunity that CILEA offers on several innovative ICT themes, with the support of its experts.
Regional Portal FVG: Effective Interoperability Trough DSpace-CRIS and Open Standards
2019, Trampus R., Piščanc J., Bollini, Andrea, Mennielli M., Balbi L., Mornati, Susanna, Pascarelli L., Demo Site Administrator
© 2017 The Authors. Friuli-VeneziaGiulia (FVG) Regional Scientific System includes three Public Research Institutions, three Universities, four International Institutions, four Technological Parks in FVG region in North-East Italy. In 2014 the three Universities started to cooperate for a common research output inside a project named UnityFVG: United Universities-FVG. They already have 10 years experience in OA with four Institutional Repositories (DSpace/DSpace-CRIS based) and more than 100,000 Research Publications. So they decided to provide a single point of access under a new Regional Research Portal based on DSpace-CRIS. The project, with the technical support of Cineca consortium, offers a great opportunity to improve the interoperability of DSpace-CRIS based solutions. The European standard for the research domain, CERIF, is the best option to drive rich information to the portal in a standard and reusable way. A plugin/patch for DSpace will be freely available to enable data export using CERIF-XML over OAI-PMH. CERIF-XML will be available for all the main entities (People, Projects, Organizations, Journals, Conferences, Dataset, Publications and metrics). The DSpace OAI-PMH harvester will be extended to support ingestion of complex, interconnected information as provided by the CERIF-XML format. This will enable content replication between DSpace-CRIS instances and easy setup of public OA oriented portals.
