Rioxx V3.0 Integration for DSpace Repositories

With the rollout of the Rioxx V3 metadata schema, repositories can benefit from far richer metadata for their articles. Since the release of the updated schema, The University of Cambridge has been working to develop an implementation of a RIOXX v3 OAI-PMH endpoint for DSpace-based repositories which will greatly simplify the adoption of this metadata schema. The Cambridge team submitted their code to DSpace for review and this has now been approved and will be released in May 2024 meaning every institution using DSpace can benefit from this important development.

CORE are also extremely grateful to Dr Agustina Martinez-Garcia, Open Research Systems Manager at University of Cambridge and the Open Research Systems team for the work they have been doing with the CORE team to support the ongoing development and testing of CORE’s RIOXX validator. The Rioxx validator BETA is now available in the CORE Dashboard. You can read full details in the CORE Documentation

Matteo Cancellieri, Lead Developer for CORE said; “RIOXXv3 improves the metadata quality vastly and simplifies our work of making research more discoverable. The best way of promoting the uptake of new profiles and guidelines is to work closely together with the community to get the best results. The great work done by Cambridge is part of this path and we hope that many other repository software providers and institutions will follow.”
