Functionality similar to Zenodo: https://guides.github.com/activities/citable-code/ It should be include local GitLab installations as well (not necessarily a CRIS feature).

We are dealing with several Identifier types within DSpace (CRIS), mostly kinds of Persistent Identifiers like DOI, Handle, URN, as well as ISBN, ISSN, URL or similar things. In many contexts it is necessary to know about the identifier type (for instance for lookup or for submission to DataCite or other services). Handling of identifiers is different: sometimes it's qualified as a qualifier in the metadata field (for example dc.identifier.doi or dc.publisher.doi), but this is not good extensible and requires some effort. So it would be nice to have a concept how to deal with these identifiers. A useful extension for that would be the automatic detection of the identifier type. Zenodo has such a mechanism by guessing and suggesting the identifier type. We would like to have such a mechanism for DSpace as well, in any cases, where different identifiers might be used. Zenodo is using a Python toolkit for that (https://idutils.readthedocs.io), that might be useful to implement such a function.
This is not necessarily a CRIS feature only.

An integration of lobid (http://lobid.org/) would integrate the German Common Authority Record Database (GND) and other lobid services (like lobid-organisations) into DSpace. This could be useful in various contexts:
Lookup for subject headings (GND)
Lookup of person names (GND)
Lookup of organisation units (GND and lobid-organisations)
We would like to have that integration for the various lookup use cases as one more simplification to get content into the entities.

The Library Code (Kim Shepherd and Pascal-Nicolas Becker ) are starting to implement this and will provide it back to DSpace-CRIS once it is done.
The import of BibTex or RIS files in DSpace (-CRIS) using the gr.ekt code should be upgraded: the current import does not take into account differences between document types. For example, RIS input fields can map to different Dublin Core fields depending on document type.

Mapping entered text fields to CRIS entities (important for all kind of data transfers or imports) .
Mapping entered text fields to CRIS entities during an data transfer (e.g. ORCID, DOI, ..) or an import (e.g. BibTex, RIS) doesn't work very well. While we have made a improvement in our DSpace-Cris to map an author text field to the correct CRIS-Entity (rp01234), a generalisation which could be adopted for other CRIS-Entities (like series, journals..) would be very helpful.

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).

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 Technology||Duplicate Check for imports|
DSpace's duplicate check is triggered on the first page of the submission form. For manually added records this is early enough, but for records taken from a database import operation, this is a bit too late. So it would be a nice feature to see a duplicate warning already on the search result page after looking for new records in databases.
Feature was funded by Hamburg University of Technology and University of Bamberg
