DORA is the institutional repository and bibliography for all research articles and other publications affiliated
with the four research institutes within the ETH Domain (Eawag, Empa, WSL and PSI) and hosted by the Lib4RI. DORA is based on the open source software framework Islandora, which uses Drupal, Fedora and SOLR as components. As a service to our users we developed an ingestion workflow, which you can find freely available on GitHub.
DORA acts simultaneously as:
- Bibliography — DORA records the scientific publications produced at the research institutes and is a source for publication lists on the institutional websites and for academic reports
- Archive — DORA preserves the full text of the institutes publications and makes them freely available to all internal members
- Open Access (OA) Repository — Researchers are able to make a full text version of their scientific articles freely available in DORA (green road to OA), thus facilitating compliance with the OA policies of many research funders
Currently publications are recorded in DORA, of which have a full text document available and are Open Access. The table below shows some statistics for the DORA repository:
