Abstract: Symplectic’s first repository integration framework focused on passing the high quality metadata captured in Elements to a linked repository - as part of the deposit process. This worked well for our institutional clients at the time, but the recent development of expansive funder and institutional OA policies created the need for a more responsive, two-way integration between Elements and a variety of institutional controlled repository platforms.
Recent advancements in repository API technology, coupled with a new repository integration philosophy and framework developed by Symplectic now affords our clients a more reliable and maintainable integration between Elements + DSpace, EPrints, Figshare and/or Hyrax. By investing in interoperability we are now able to better support institutions looking to offer systems that encourage researchers to make more of their research open, whilst simultaneously benefitting from more streamlined research administration and better institutional reporting of OA activity.
During this presentation we will provide an overview of our latest repository toolset, share our experience of integrating Symplectic Elements with DSpace, EPrints, Figshare and Hyrax APIs - including multiple repositories connected to a single Elements system - and outline a number of emerging opportunities for future interconnectivity.
