This page is about SWORD which is a lightweight protocol for remotely depositing content into repositories.

The SWORD project was funded by JISC and more information can be found on the official website.

SWORD made easy

SWORD is basically an http put (or POST) to a defined web URL, where the content of the posted request is the thing being deposited.

SWORD 1.3 uses an http header field to define how the thing has been wrapped up (packaged)

SWORD 2.0 uses the content-type to deduce how to understand thing

By default, sword is ENABLED in all SWORD 3.2 & 3.3 EPrints servers, and access is available to all registered users.

EPrints 3.2 uses SWORD 1.3

EPrints 3.3 uses SWORD 2.0

For further information on SWORD 2 see API:EPrints/Apache/CRUD.
