Dura Project

Elements supports all file-types from Mendeley, allowing academics to deposit their pre-published text and ancillary materials directly to the institutional repository.

Give academics the ability to deposit via Elements in just a few clicks, simplifying their workflow and therefore encouraging deposits.

Works with the Repository Tools module in Elements, so all major repository technologies (DSpace, Fedora, ePrints and Intralibrary) are supported out of the box.

Working with CARET

CARET, Mendeley and Symplectic worked together to create this unique combination of functionalities, specifically designed to integrate Repository Deposit into the normal academic workflow.

CARET helped Mendeley and Symplectic work with academics from the University of Cambridge to ensure a seamless workflow and user experience.

Module Availability

This new module will be available for purchase this summer 2012.

With this partnership, we have the opportunity to position ourselves as
a world leader in the development of the scholarly ecosystem.

I cannot overstate how pleased we have been.
We have to have confidence to work with a partner
for at least 5 years on a project of this size.

The University measures the individual research activity of academic staff. This Measure of Research Activity (MoRA) requires the collection of publication data from faculty. Symplectic Elements supports this beautifully.

Floris van der Leest, Victoria University, Melbourne, Australia

[Elements] will help to bring transparency to the richness of thought showcased within non-traditional publications, providing a more holistic representation of faculties’ scholarly work.

Caleb Smith, University of Michigan

Feedback to date has been extremely positive from all levels across the University, with individual academics and colleagues actively promoting the ease of use of the system.
