The Claim Publication feature is based on the following components

  1. listener to subscribe automatically the user to the daily changes notification

  2. batch script to fix pre-existent Researcher profile and subscribe it to the daily notification

  3. enhanced script to bind Researcher Profile to the publication: now it is possible enable send notification when possible matches founded (to run as a weekly cron)

  4. functionality to approve/reject possibile matches (visible only to user that is a member of "self-claim-publication" special group).

  5. functionality to claim publication from the item splash page

The workflow should be:

Prerequisite: disabled on cris.cfg the import from the submission and enable the claim

Example: the librarian insert an author with or without authority. The batch script called ScriptBindItemToRP will propose the matches found automatically to the user. The user will go to the accept/reject user interface to approve or reject the match.
