News from DORA – DORA Empa is now live, too!

Publication Services Team, 03. November 2016

After DORA Eawag, the Digital Object Repository At Eawag, became publicly available at the end of the summer, we are happy to announce that DORA Empa, the Digital Object Repository At Empa, has now also seen the light of day!

Already available

Both repositories contain mostly journal articles, but also newspaper and magazine articles, books and edited books. The latest snapshots were taken on:

DORA Eawag
o journal articles: 25th October 2016
o newspaper and magazine articles: 25th October 2016
o books: 24th October 2016
o edited books: 31st October 2016

DORA Empa
o journal articles: 16th September 2016
o newspaper and magazine articles: 16th September 2016
o books: 24th October 2016
o edited books: 31st October 2016

With respect to the mentioned dates, both repositories are almost complete for the listed publication types – a few publications remain to be dealt with manually. The complete and up-to-date bibliographies of both institutes can be found here (Eawag) and here (Empa), respectively.

Coming up

We are currently working on migrating other publication types, such as individual book chapters, theses (bachelor, master and PhD), and conference items. At the same time, we are checking and correcting the metadata systematically, as well as completing the linkage of authors and organisational units with their publications (see also the «Help» pages on DORA). Please be patient as both tasks need time to be accomplished. Especially the data revision will require several months, but finalisation of linkages will have higher priority.

We hope that you enjoy using DORA!

If you have any questions or suggestions, do not hesitate to contact us.
