Open Repository 2021 will sign the momentum of the DSpace and DSpace-CRIS 7 release. This presentation will demonstrate the key features of DSpace-CRIS explaining how it differs from a plain DSpace in providing a full fledged open source CRIS system promoting open science.
Indeed, other than allowing to record data about any kind of entities and their relation DSpace-CRIS focus on end-to-end functionalities to support business processes and expectations such as
- the self management of researcher profiles with a full bidirectional ORCID integration;
- project, funding and awards management providing the ability to track and organize them over time adding more details and information when needed;
- simplify the administration, improve the data quality and reduce the administrative burden;
- extended interoperability supporting the most richer exchange formats such as OpenAIRE CERIF.
DSpace-CRIS 7 is a production-grade, ready-to-use, CRIS solution under real usage and data load, with early adopters also at National scale.
The DSpace-CRIS 7 is not just a revamp of the features already available in previous versions but taking the opportunities offered by the new modern architecture provides completely new features and integrations.
Migration path from previous versions will be discussed.
DSpace 7 - Enhanced Submission & Workflow
Andrea Bollini, Giuseppe Digilio, Claudio Cortese
After more than 4 years of development, thousands of commits and hours spent in developing the new version DSpace 7 is finally close to being released and expected to be presented at Open Repository.
One of the core components  of DSpace is the submission and workflow process that was largely redesigned and improved in the new version.
The presentation will provide a deep dive into the new Enhanced Submission and Workflow features of DSpace 7, including how to configure, customize & use this feature (and differences with DSpace 6 and below) showing how to take advantage of the offered flexibility taking examples from customization and extensions developed by early adopter projects.
This presentation is a renewed version of a similar presentation held at OR2019  updated to reflect the final status of the features for DSpace 7, include details about the transition from the Bibliographic Transformation Engine (BTE)  used in previous DSpace version to an updated Live Import Framework  and inspirational examples from running projects.
DSpace 7 - Configurable Entities
Lieven Droogmans, Ben Bosman
DSpace 7 has been extended with the possibility of “Configurable Entities” in response to a growing need for describing more types of objects and relations between objects as well as compound objects. Examples include: authors, projects, datasets, grants, monographs, lecture series, … .
The new Configurable Entities feature and new concepts in DSpace 7 will be presented such as relations between items, virtual metadata, … .
Defining an entity model through configuration is made possible without using Java classes for the specific entities. To achieve this, the concept starts from the current DSpace Item object and extends it, allowing institutions to keep using DSpace with standard items. The entities in a custom entity model are items that can be typed, and relations between items of different types can be created. Several entity models can be defined and can exist alongside one another in one repository.
Finally, this talk will briefly touch on the next steps for future versions of DSpace.
This presentation is an update to the presentation “DSpace 7 - The Power of Configurable Entities” presented at OR2019 as the work has now been finalized and the features announced at OR2019 have now been implemented and can be demonstrated.
