DSpace-CRIS 7 2023.02.03 March, 29th

This version, released on the 29th of March 2024, provides minor improvements and bug fixing.

Key Enhancements

  • When linking a page of the repository, the use of a language can now be forced with a URL parameter (e.g lang=it)
  • Added the Communities and Collections section to the Admin menu for collection administrators when the section is not shown in the Navigation bar
  • Added a setting to enable/disable the Mirador download plugin. It is enabled by default
  • In items lists, thumbnails are embedded to avoid extra calls and slowdowns
  • Improved the responsiveness of metrics badge pop-ups on smaller screens
  • Added support for template Item in the struct builder script/configuration
  • Added configurable metadata of index-able item bitstreams on Solr
  • Lucky-search configuration now supports also redirect of previous DSpace-CRIS v5 bitstreams paths to the DSpace-CRIS v7
  • DOIOrganiser performance improved
  • Allowed administrators to always perform PUT/Patches operations over items (in progress or archived)
  • Improved the performance of the item-enhancer script
  • Display the current metrics consents text for each badge
  • Implement component to visualize current consents for metrics badges in a compact way
  • Introduced the relatedItemMetadataFields attribute on org.dspace.content.enhancer.impl.RelatedEntityItemEnhancer
  • The relatedItemMetadataField property in metadata-enhancer.xml now uses a list of values
  • Item thumbnail preview is now disabled in MyDSpace item list
  • The behavior of RelatedItemEnhancer has been updated to reduce the amount of generated metadata retaining the ability to minimize load to determine required changes when the source item or the related items (deepMode = true) are updated. Now only distinct sources uuid are tracked and for each source it is possible to extract/generate one or more virtual metadata values that will be all stored individual as cris.virtual. metadata. The place of the cris.virtual. metadata always match the place of the corresponding uuid / authority from which the metadata is generated and that is stored in the cris.virtualsource.. Please note that there is no guarantee about the order of the cris.virtualsource. values, it can differs from the order of the original metadata from which the authorities have been extracted. For example, the publication with Authors: Author1, Author2, Author3 can lead to the following virtual :
    cris.virtualsource.<qualifier> = uuid3, uuid3, uuid1, uuid2, uuid2, uuid2
    cris.virtual.<qualifier> = value-extracted-from-author3, value2-extracted-from-author3, value-extracted-from-author1, 
    value-extracted-from-author2, value2-extracted-from-author2, value3-extracted-from-author2
  • Added support for pushing the Product entities to ORCID (donated by floriangantner - University of Bamberg)
  • Added support for pushing the Patent entities to ORCID (donated by floriangantner - University of Bamberg)
  • Updated deduplication configuration for the new data-quality add-on features.
  • During submission, autosave is triggered by changes on dc.type by default
  • Removed sortablejs library dependency


  • Fixed issue for which navigating to the item page during CSR could have led to a hard redirect of the page
  • Resolved the out of memory error during Angular build
  • Supervised items in MyDSpace are now listed correctly
  • Fixed the error appearing in Edit item update when there’s no submitter
  • Fixed the issue for which the authority value was not saved if controlled vocabulary was used in a not repeatable field
  • Fixed bug for rendering cris-layout-configuration breaking when the rendering was set on a field without the filtering metadata
  • Fixed rendering issue with item page with huge/large number of metadata
  • Added the template for the subscription statistics email previously hard-coded in the script
  • Fix the issue of facets disappearing in search page when a filter was selected
  • Fixed issue with type-bind when dc.type is provided by a metadata enrichment
  • Fixed issue with type-bind when dc.type is vocabulary controlled
  • Fixed issue for which Authority was not saved for repeatable fields

DSpace-CRIS 7 2023.02.02 February, 9th

This version, released on the 9th of February 2024, provides minor improvements and bug fixing.

Key Enhancements

  • Created a bootable jar to execute DSpace REST as Spring Boot application

  • Added the internal routing on the counted component and improved its general appearance and behavior

  • Removed the dropdown menu with SherpaRomeo suggestions when entering the title of Books

  • Added support to display an alternative tab/box if the configured one is not accessible by the current user

  • Added AddToAny for sharing posts on social media

  • Implemented a GDPR-compliant metrics integration

    • Isolated consents for third party metrics, each of the metrics can be accepted/declined separately.

    • Script loading is conditional to allow giving consent for each metric.

    • Disabling each metric is possible on the whole environment via configuration property.

  • In order to have, for ORCID, an external identifier even for orgunits like departments, with this version the orgunit hierarchy is scanned upwards, and the first identifier is used for the disambiguation

  • Improved the post preview on social media when sharing it from the social buttons

  • Improved the appearance of subscription emails

  • The MetadataImporter was updated in order to be able to load all the registries at once, with the possibility of configuring which files must be used and without having to specify the file to use for every import

  • The ItemEnhancer now avoids performing an update of an item when there are no changes in the calculated virtual metadata, even when the deep \(previously named force\) mode is used. This prevents triggering other consumers, such as reindexing or altering the last modification date of the item if not really needed.

  • Created utility functions to handle internal and external links

  • The ROR integration also shows the country when providing suggestions in a field

Bug fixes

  • Using discovery configuration communityOrCollection for the item mapper in the item administrative section

  • Fixed the issue that made filters in the search section not work correctly if square brackets are used

  • Fixed the logo being displayed on the communities & collections pages. The logo had no maximum size

  • Added tests to test the community/collection logo could be edited once set/uploaded

  • The default logo was Person but the default one is now File since not every thumbnail is generally related to a Person it makes sense to have a more generic logo/thumbnail

  • This technical improvement opens the opportunity for performance improvements each time that a script or other functionalities require to work over all or a large list of items.

  • Restored the filters in the sidebar on the Search Results page

  • Fixed the link authn error during external login \(OIDC\)

  • Fixed the issue of not listing any community or collection when starting CSV and XLS Metadata export

  • The item page resolver function was corrected in the case of a single leading tab, resolving the issue of having a stuck loading of pages

  • Fix cris-layout box for bitstream type

  • Removed the yellow bar on the top of the page

  • Fixed the infinite scroll in the pop-up appearing when clicking the “All of DSpace” button in the search bar on MyDSpace page

  • Fixed the infinite scroll in the pop-up appearing when adding an entity starting from the option in the administration menu

  • Fixed the issue of the impossibility of running the filter-media process with limitations to a community or collection

  • Fixed the “detect duplicate” error which prevented the depositing of an item with a correction request

  • Fixed error with the process page not being correctly updated once the process ended

Based on DSpace tag 7.6.1 (backend) and 7.6.1 (front-end)



We are ready to tag a new official DSpace-CRIS 5 and 6 releases after the cut of the official DSpace 6.4 and 5.11 versions, up to now we are still working on snapshot releases. The following features have been introduced:

5.6 (released on November 16th, 2016 - click here to browse the code on github) / include the release of DSpace-CKAN integration module

The release includes the security fixes already available in DSpace JSPUI 5.6, making it easier to upgrade from a recent DSpace version to DSpace-CRIS (no more need to run sql scripts manually) and brings a lot of new and exciting features:

  • UI Extendibility: the webapp can now use the servlet 3.0 specification, enabling the creation and plug-in of external modules with their specific web UI components and pages. An extension point has been introduced to plugin viewers dedicated to particular bitstreams.
  • Edit metadata for any DSpace Object via the UI: it is now possible to edit/add/remove metadata for Communities, Collections, Bundles and Bitstreams, to simplify the management of further functionalities based on custom metadata.
  • Edit archived Items with UI submission: administrators can now edit archived or withdrawn items using the same UI available for submissions, exploiting functionalities such as dropdown, autocomplete, ORCID lookup, validation, etc.
  • Deduplication tools (detect & merge): this administrative tool allows to check the database for potential duplicates and to merge the confirmed matches. During the submission, an alert is shown when a potential duplicate is detected. More information and screenshots available here
  • Improved ORCiD synchronization: DSpace-CRIS now stores the internal identifier assigned by ORCiD to the publications in order to prevent record duplications when a local DSpace-CRIS update is pushed to ORCID ("put" code). In addition to that, DSpace-CRIS is now able to push to the ORCiD profiles educational and professional information of the researcher.
  • Improved submission forms: among the new functionalities we can list the regex validation support, a framework for complex validation support, new input type “number” for submission and new input type “year” for submission.
  • Improved security model for CRIS entities: every single CRIS object, object tab and object box can now be configured to be visible to specific users or user groups. An example of this would be when parts of a specific project description (such as costs) can be linked to the project participants, or the department director, or the research/contract office, etc.
  • Automatic calculation of derived metrics: examples are average, maximum, minimum, variance of publication citation counts shown as metrics at the level of researcher, organization, project, and so on.
  • Advanced import framework: border tables have been introduced to easily create ETL procedures to load and synchronize data, currently limited to publication, in the DSpace-CRIS installation.
  • On-demand DOI registration: an administrative UI allows to register DOIs via DataCite or CrossRef for items matching configured criteria (theses, dataset, etc.). For each group it is possible to define the template used to generate the DOI and the metadata to deposit. The precalculated DOI can be revised by the administrator to allow complete personalization.
  • Template service: the template item now supports the use of substitution variables bound to dynamic code plugged in as spring bean. The functionality allows the generation of default values dynamically generated in submission such as the timestamp, the details of the submitter, and so on.
  • Creation of CRIS objects as part of the submission process: it allows users to create new CRIS objects (persons, projects, organizations, events, etc.) on demand as needed during the submission of a DSpace item. It can be even used to provide a workflow around the collection of data, including metrics, about CRIS entities.

As first implementation of the UI Extendibility we provide native support in DSpace-CRIS of the DSpace-CKAN Integration module ( DSpace-CKAN allows an in-depth integration between DSpace and CKAN. Tabular data (CSV, XLS, etc.) are deposited in a CKAN instance through a curation task. The preview of the dataset content is enabled proxing in DSpace the CKAN Datastore API so to enforce the access condition defined in DSpace (Open Access, embargo, etc.). The dataset preview allows filtering, pagination and sorting, all the operation are performed on server side to save bandwidth overload. An example is visible here:

5.5 (released on March 27th, 2016 - click here to browse the code on github)

  • Facets for dynamic components: publications list, projects list and any other dynamic component included in the researcher profiles or in other CRIS entity details page (project, organization, etc.) can now provide faceting capabilities
  • Bibliographic export for publications: researcher's publication list can be exported in several format by the profile owner and search results can be exported by the repository administrators
  • Incremental Authority from previous value: to suggest terms from values already added into the system to keep metadata clean and to avoid misspelling. Common use cases include keywords, publishers, etc.
  • Direct access to the researcher profile using external identifiers: make it easy to link external systems to your DSpace-CRIS installation without the need to know the internal identifier. For instance you can address your researcher profiles using their ORCID

5.4 (released on February 15th, 2016 - click here to browse the code on github)

  • There is now a general infrastructure to support metrics about any DSpace/DSpace-CRIS objects, such as traditional bibliometrics for publications, authors, journals, alternative and local metrics.

  • DSpace-CRIS is now integrated out-of-box with Scopus, Web Of Science, and PubMed Central to collect, show and process citation data. The AltMetrics  badge can be shown beside the other metrics.

  • For any defined metric DSpace-CRIS allows for calculating objects’ local ranking and percentile in order to provide the “most cited” component to different web pages (the home page or any other specific Department/Office pages).

  • Internal statistics have been elaborated as usage metrics to make them available for “Most viewed”, “Most downloaded” components and to calculate local percentile.

  • Metrics data can now be exposed in “listing” to make browsing and searching easier, and they can also be used as sorting criteria. This is done by extending the SOLR capability to load additional information from an external source. This feature enables future improvements such as support for “user rated content” to DSpace.

  • Another important new development is the ability to load and update CRIS’ objects into the system using XLS file, a similar approach to what is actually supported by DSpace for standard items. The feature allows a user to set any kind of field, including the relations between different objects (such as org.unit and researchers, projects and researchers, etc.), and custom fields.

  • The data model configuration has been simplified, indeed it is now possible to easily export and import the configuration also using XLS files.

  • There is now a better integration between DSpace-CRIS and ORCID. When a researcher creates her profile in the local DSpace-CRIS, the system automatically collects all the biographic information (such as biography, additional names, external URLs, additional identifiers) from ORCID,  both when the researcher directly accesses the system, as well as when a new publication is added to the system that the researcher is co-authoring.

  • Additionally, the new version has improved the layout and navigation experience: the navigation menu invites the user to explore the repository contents by “Entity”, offering the appropriate tools for each specific type of content such as dedicated browse indexes, advanced search options and components to highlight recent or featured content.
