[EP-tech] Re: Eprints VS Dspace

Hi Edwin and Et Al,


DSpace, Digital Commons and Eprints are the best options for Academic digital repositories.


DSpace have the largest list of installations… but..


In the real world Eprints manage the easiest way to install with less tech knowledge and a really turnkey installation like yum install eprints or apt-get install eprints, etc..


One of the best acid test is Google Scholar, they said “Eprints version 3.0 or a later version are well-structured for indexing - search engine robots are able to quickly reach all articles by following links from the home page and individual article pages embed bibliographic data in a machine-readable fashion for indexing” and DSpace have had some issues regarding indexing… http://roar.eprints.org/help/google_scholar.html


By the other hand the principal CRIS (RIS) systems have APIs or interfaces for interconnections with Eprints and DSpace.


My two cents!!


Best regards

Subject: [EP-tech] Eprints VS Dspace

Hello everyone.

I am currently implementing Eprints as a repository for digital collections. I have some time using eprints and have adjusted its structure and environment in general. But recently I asked me the question why use Eprints, instead of DSpace, has given me the task. I have not found anywhere that tells me a comparison which is better than the other, from my point of view both are equal.

The question is: What is the difference between Eprints and DSpace? Why some decide to use DSpace and other eprints. I want to know your answers on what type of repository is more convenient to use and what are the advantages of each.

Thanks to all.

PS: sorry, my Inglés sucks
