  • Vertical and horizontal tabs in CRIS Entities (ongoing)
    It will be an alternative layout for the CRIS object page highly configurable. Instead to use tabs a left menu will be introduced, with the possibility to group different sections (i.e. tabs) under a common label to build a hierarchical menu. Tabs not listed for the vertical menu will appear on the top of the CRIS content as horizontal buttons. The feature is NOT planned to be merged in the official code base but will be available on the HSU github public repository for other interested party

  • "Add fulltext / Create new version" and "green open access publication"-feature (various entry points) (ongoing)
  • "Add fulltext" enables e.g. authorized logged in users to jump directly in the submission workflow again to add the fulltext for dspaceitems, which has been published first as "only metadata"-submission. Enhancements are in progress.

Management of private CRIS Entities for researcher

If a researcher sets a CRIS Entity as private (e.g. maybe an future project => See also RDMO integration) we wonder how he would manage these items in future (maybe to update them). A possible solution would be a special area for such cases in the MyDSpace-CRIS Site with the correct rights management (only one's private projects).

Linked Open Data für CRIS-Entitie

Based on the DSpace modul Linked (Open) Data by Pascal-Nicolas Becker we created a own modul which works also for CRIS Entities.

Site policy modal

Can be easily applied to DSpace (without CRIS (wink)).

University of BambergPrefilled contract formulars for download or mail delivery (submission process)

The extension could not be integrated in the official master (4Science) because of specific requirements and the use of Jasper. The jasper license is an AGPL so it is not compatible with the official DSpace-CRIS license. We are planning to push our source code into Git (according to Hamburg University of Technolgy).  

Hamburg University of TechnologyExtend journal lookup (in ZDB and in local entity objects) to lookup by ISSN instead of journal title

The ZDB integration has been pushed to github repository

University of BambergHide empty tabs on CRIS-Entity-Homepage
  • Hamburg University of Technology also has opened a ticket for that... 4Science told me, that it should be standard behaviour, that a tab without content is hidden, but for us this also does not work in any case.
  • University of Bamberg: We have asked Andrea at the AWT 2019. It should be standard but it is not at the moment. To support the development of the feature we opend a ticket right now.
  • Hamburg University of Technology: on our test system this feature is working as expected, so the problem should be solved in the latest master... Andrea Luigi explained to me, that the tab is not displayed if there is no content at all, if there are no metadata fields for the box (in jsp controlled boxes there is no need to display metadata fields either way). So, after removing the metadata from the researcher tab in an ou profile for instance, the tab will not be displayed (but, as I noted, only on our test system; on our production system the problem really is till there).
  • University of Bamberg: We have merged the latest master yesterday and can confirm that empty tabs on CRIS-Entity-Homepage are now hidden. So we moved that topic from "Planned with 4Science" to "In Production".
