  • 1. AgriOcean DspaceCustomized version of DSpace for agricultural and aquatic networks in parallelwith developments at Hasselt UniversityDenys Slipetskyy (Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas, Ukraine),Dirk Leinders, Marc Goovaerts (Hasselt University)Imma Subirats, Sarah Dister, Thembani Malapela, Johannes Keizer (FAO of the United Nations)VOA3R Workshop presentation
  • 2. VOA3R European project: Virtual Open Access Agriculture & Aquaculture Repository: A platform for sharing scientific and scholarly research related to agriculture, aquaculture and environment Providing services:  Combining harvesting of repositories and a research social network How to deliver good services?  On the repository side: By collecting rich and high quality metadata See:
  • 3. VOA3R
  • 4. Metadata quality Refined metadata:  To format the source: ex. Acta Oceanográfica del Pacífico, 9(1). p. 103-114, you need separate input fields Use of ontologies: AGROVOC, ASFA, Geonames, … Unique identifiers: Author ID’s, ISSN, DOI, Resource URI’s Rich metadata standards The relevance of metadata quality becomes visible on the service side.
  • 5. AgriOcean Dspace In 2010, the United Nations agencies of FAO and UNESCO-IOC announced a joint initiative to provide a customized version of DSpace:  to promote open access to scientific literature in the field of oceanography, agriculture and related sciences available in digital form;  to assure good metadata quality and the use of thesauri and other forms of authority control;  to develop sustainable repositories that are more accessible and visible;  The customization is branded AgriOcean Dspace (AOD), and integrates the previous developments of both UN agencies in one customized version of DSpace.
  • 6. AgriOcean Dspace customization of Dspace  extended OAI-PMH interface with MODS, AGRIS AP, VOA3R AP  use of controlled vocabularies (ASFA, AGROVOC)  use of authority control for journals (ASFA and AGRIS list)  availability of type based submission module  advanced and customizable import functionalities  easy to install version for Windows
  • 7. New Lay-out
  • 8. Enhanced submission module Lay-out possibilities:  Switching between types  Grouping of fields  Definition of field size  Different fields in a row  Language option for a field
  • 9. Type based submission input-forms-extended.xml: <collection-type> <collection handle="default"> <type name="Journal Contribution" /> <type name="Book"/> <type name="Book Section" /> <type name="Proceedings Paper" /> … <type name="Working Paper" /> <type name="Map" /> <type name="Data Set" /> <type name="Other" /> </collection> </collection-type>
  • 10. Authority control Using the Dspace authority functionality  Based on local table: e.g. sql.asfa = SELECT termcode as authority, en as value FROM asfa WHERE lower(en) LIKE % || lower(?) || % ORDER BY en LIMIT 500.  Link between field and authority list is defined in input- forms-extended.xml (not in in dspace.cfg): ex. <authority closed="true" editable=“false" presentation="suggest" limit="50">asfa</authority>
  • 11. Authority control on journal titles Possibility to add besides the title an issn if not available in the authority list ISSN is copied to dc.identifier.issn title + volume + issue + start + end page > dc.identifier.citation
  • 12. Authority control on author namesAuthor identification:  alternative writing  adding a new one  using Dspace index
  • 13. Embargo on bitstream levelOnlyavailable for UHasselt staff Only available for Dspace administrators
  • 14. Import on interface level Import in the submission workflow as ‘unfinished submission’ Metadata of xml and ris-based formats:  xml: Agris AP, MODS  Ris: Endnote Translation to DIM format
  • 15. Easy installer for windows  Based on a built version  With NSIS - script
  • 16. Distribution Installations by different partners:  OceanDocs: >40 institutes from Africa and Latin America  IBSS(Ukraine) & CEEMAR (East-European network)  Published Ocean Data (Pilot Project of SCOR, MBLWHOI and IODE to archive data sets)  Ministry of Agriculture (Peru)  KMFRI & KARI, Kenya Interest of:  The OdinAfrica network, JIMMA University (Ethiopia), Moi University (Kenya), VLIR-UOS Network of 12 Cuban universities and institutions related to the agricultural domain in Latin America. To be harvested by AGRIS , VOA3R , OceanDocs
  • 17. Different level approach Easy-to-install version for small organizations  Based on a built version of Dspace Harvesting functionality in OceanDocs:  Harvesting the odin and institutional repositories of the IODE network  Mirror metadata and documents for archiving purposes AGRIS as harvester of FAO-related repositories
  • 18. Communication and Support Main tool: AIMS (FAO) - Communication AgriOcean DSpace:  FAO repository community: the AGRIS network  IODE repository community: OceanDocs network Assistance  AgriOcean DSpace community on AIMS, Agricultural Information Management Standards (register)  OceanTeacher Support material/Self training  Preinstallation requirements  Installation of AgriOcean DSpace  Administration of AgriOcean DSpace
  • 19. AOD-community on AIMS
  • 20. Future development Ontology plug-in/module:  For SKOS, OWL, …  Authority control on different type of descriptors (thesauri, authors, geographical descriptors, …)  Accessing AGROVOC through web services or locally AgriOcean Dspace is part of the set of tools to be distributed among the VOA3R data providers for the implementation of document repositories - Linked Open Data (LOD) for AgriOcean Dspace After JSP?
  • 21.  The AgriOcean Dspace Team:  Imma Subirats, Sarah Dister, Thembani Malapela(FAO of the United Nations)  Denys Slipetskyy (Institute of Biology of the Southern Seas, Ukraine),  Dirk Leinders, Nils De Wolf, Marc Goovaerts (Hasselt University Library, Belgium)
