We would like to have that integration for the various lookup use cases as one more simplification to get content into the entities.
Interested: Hamburg University of Technology (Oliver Goldschmidt ), State and University Library Hamburg (Phu Tu 

  • RDMO integration
    A researcher should be able to reuse his own project metadata stored in RDMO. Maybe connection via SWORD. 
    Interested: University of Bamberg (Steffen Illig )

Planned with 4Science

  • Connection of CRIS Entities (Project, Awards) via autocomplete with Publications

    New/Existing CRIS Entities like projects or awards (maybe "best papers") should be easily connected/disconnected by researchers with existing publications. We do not want our researcher to use the "Claim"-Functionality for that. A first time calculation from 4Science: 6 days (basics) + 4 days (delete funktionality) = 10 days work.

    Hamburg University of Technology: This feature wants to enable the user to set existing publications to a project from the project perspective, right? If this is, what is described here, we would also be interested in having this feature and would be willing to jump into it for shared costs.
    University of Bamberg: Right. This feature wants to enable users to set existing publications to a cris-entity (e.g. projects) from the cris-entity perspective (e.g. projekts). Great!RDMO integration

  • University of Bamberg : European Date format in JDyna (e.g. Projects). Actual the format is 30-04-2019 (instead of 2019/04/30 before). 30.04.2019 would be convenient.: Implementation by 4Science is done. Test are actual in progress.

  • Improvements for switching en/de

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.

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

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".
