OR2012 Developer Challenge:
Linking CRISes to Research Discovery


Steffen Godskesen, Rikke Willer and Christian Tonsberg from the Technical University of Denmark presented an idea for linking CRIS systems to repositories to aid research discovery at the DevCSI Open Repositories 2012 Developer Challenge.
In their original entry, Steffen gave the following description of the idea:

We would like to pitch the idea of facilitating recording of research output by building a bridge between a Discovery Interface (DI) and a Current Research Information System (CRIS). Assume for the following that, (1) researchers consider recording research output as tedious and unnecessarily complicated, and (2) the bulk of the metadata required to fill in a record in the CRIS will at some point be accessible in a DI (at least if we restrict ourselves to academic papers and books). We would like to exploit this last assumption in order to invalidate the former be enabling either the researcher herself or an assistant to create a new record in the CRIS based on metadata retrieved from DI.
