The presentation focus on the latest releases of DSpace-CRIS, compatible with DSpace 5 and 6, with new exciting features. Particularly interesting is the recent integration between DSpace-CRIS and CKAN released as an independent module. The DSpace-CKAN Integration Module has already been released in open source (same license than DSpace) and it can easily adopted also by standard DSpace installations, both JSPUI or XMLUI.
Starting with DSpace-CRIS 5.6.1, along with the security fixes of DSpace JSPUI 5.6, the following features have been introduced: an extendible UI to deliver the bitstreams with dedicated viewers, a simple metadata editing of any DSpace object; the editing of archived items using the submission UI; a deduplication and duplicate-alert tool; improved ORCiD synchronization; improved submission form; improved security model for CRIS entities; creation of CRIS object as part of the submission process, automatic calculation of metrics; advanced import framework; on-demand DOI registration; template services.
DSpace-CKAN Integration Module allows users to directly preview the dataset content deposited in a CKAN instance from DSpace via a “curation task”. DSpace-CRIS and DSpace-CKAN will be supported by 4Science also for the future major versions of the platform and the roadmap to the DSpace 7 compatibility will be also presented.
