ReCollect is a Bazaar package for EPrints which transforms an EPrints install into a research data repository. Fields are compliant with the DataCite and INSPIRE metadata schema. This plugin was created by the UK Data Archive led Research Data @Essex project (http://www.data-archive.ac.uk/create-manage/projects/rd-essex). Thanks to the DataPool project at the University of Southampton (http://datapool.soton.ac.uk/) for their assistance in packaging the plugin.

ReCollect lowers the barrier for deploying a full-featured and standards compliant research data repository. The only prerequisite is a clean EPrints install. From there, a user with an administrative account can use the EPrints Bazaar option in the System Tools menu to install ReCollect with just one click.

Features

ReCollect features are too numerous to document here in their entirety, but can be summarised as follows:

  • Redesigned Abstract page to present complex data collections, consisting of many files of different types.
  • Many tweaks to workflow and validations.
  • Revised and expanded field labels and help phrases.


Can I install ReCollect on a pre-populated repository?

It is possible to integrate ReCollect with an existing repository; however this would require edits to the code in order to switch back on features that ReCollect hides, namely the Eprint Type selection as the first stage of deposit (e.g. Article, Book, Dataset etc). This is not how ReCollect was tended to be used, so we would only recommend you do this if you are confident working with the EPrints code base.
