BioMed Central Upgrades Open Repository

BioMed Central (www.biomedcentral.com) announced the latest upgrades to Open Repository (www.openrepository.com), the open access publisher’s hosted repository solution. The upgrades include new features from DSpace (www.dspace.org). Open Repository now offers increased customization options and a new and improved user interface to institutions. BioMed Central also announced that two organizations have recently elected to host their repositories on Open Repository: Roehampton University and Medecins Sans Frontieres.

Open Repository version 1.4.9 has several new features that are designed to enhance the customer experience. The release offers an improved user interface, making it easier for customers to browse and submit their material online. Additionally, institutions can convert their Word, Excel, PowerPoint, text, and RTF documents to PDF. Customers can also set up RSS feeds and customize lists and search fields, adding value to the already robust platform.

Open Repository is designed to give institutions the personalization of an in-house repository at a fraction of the cost. The service hosts and maintains repositories for institutions, eliminating the need for the support and resources required for an in-house solution, while providing unique and innovative features to its users. Built on the latest DSpace technology, Open Repository can be personalized to support an institution’s specific needs and identity.
