DSpace-CRIS is the first open-source platform for the Research Data and Information Management ever developed. Our Team is the one that in 2009, together with the University of Hong Kong, developed the first pilot and since then they have been continuosly working on enhancing the platform.
Differently from other (commercial) CRISs, DSpace-CRIS has the institutional repository as its core component, providing high visibility on the web to all the collected information and objects.
It is a specific extension of DSpace: it broadens its functionalities and expands its data model while relying on its large Community. DSpace-CRIS is compliant with many international standards (as CERIF, ) to facilitate interoperability and data transfer.
The main characteristic of DSpace-CRIS is its flexible data model that allows you to collect and manage research data and information typical of a CRIS system.
DuraSpace provides a wiki space to DSpace-CRIS with the purpose of exposing the documentation in a useful, collaborative way to stimulate discussion among DSpace and DSpace-CRIS users. All the contributions to the code, the new features of the platform, the technical documentation and the roadmap can be found here: https://wiki.duraspace.org/display/DSPACECRIS/DSpace-CRIS+Home
