eSciDoc Infrastructure: a Fedora-Based e-Research Framework
MetadataShow full item record
eSciDoc is the open-source e-Research framework jointly developed by the German Max Planck Society and FIZ Karlsruhe. It consists of a generic set of basic services (“eSciDoc Infrastructure”) and various applications built on top of this infrastructure (“eSciDoc Solutions”). This paper focuses on the eSciDoc Infrastructure, highlights the differences to the underlying Fedora repository, and demonstrates its powerful und application-centric programming model. Further on, we discuss challenges for e-Research Infrastructures and how we addressed them with the eSciDoc Infrastructure.
