News: Dataverse Plugin Release

The Public Knowledge Project is excited to announce the first public release of the Dataverse Network plugin for Open Journal Systems 2.3+. This plugin has been developed by PKP in collaboration with Harvard’s Institute for Quantitative Social Science, with support from the Sloan Foundation, and an earlier version was demonstrated at the 2013 PKP conference in Mexico City. It represents the continued improvement of both platforms — OJS’ SWORD library, and Dataverse’s API.

Update: Deep in the trenches of SWORDv.2 API development

The PKP-Dataverse integration project has entered the development stage of the plugin and Data Deposit API to make research data an intrinsic part of the journal publication process.

Here's a little snapshot from one of our developers, Philip Durbin, whiteboarding SWORDv2 support to be able to deposit research data from PKP's OJS to the Harvard Dataverse Network.

Lightning Talk on the project at NETSL Annual Spring Conference

Two members of the project, Sonia Barbosa and Eleni Castro, will be presenting an overview and the current status of the OJS-DVN plugin project at the New England Technical Services Librarians' Annual Spring Conference on April 12, 2013 at College of Holy Cross (Worcester, MA) during a Lightning Talk session. The slides from the talk will be posted on this site afterwards.
