Status: Completed by @mire.

The default DSpace search system does not meet the needs of Dryad.


  • Search results should always show publication, with the related authors and datasets listed below the relevant publication.
    • @mire notes that this will be much easier if each DSpace item contains correct metadata in the dc.type field, so datasets can easily be discriminated from publications.
  • Publications should be searchable via DOI. This will ease linking from a dataset to its primary publication.
  • Advanced search should contain fields relevant to Dryad searches.
  • Publications should be searchable via OpenURL.
