Use your repository as a data source for Elements
Our newest repository integrations (RT2) are built on a foundation of harvest functionality which establishes the repository as a data source for Elements. By harvesting outputs from your repository and matching them to existing Elements records we ensure that Elements maintains an accurate and up-to-date representation of the research outputs in your repository. This allows Elements to provide authoritative open access monitoring and minimises duplicates. It also enables academics and administrators to view and interact with all of their open access outputs in a single system, saving time and effort.
Easy to maintain repository integration
To ensure the repository integration is easy to implement and maintain, all configuration of the integration including writing and updating crosswalks can be completed from within the Elements UI. Fully configurable crosswalks define how your data will be mapped between Elements and the repository. To ensure they are easy to configure and maintain we offer an innovative crosswalk editor, enabling system administrators to edit and test their crosswalks directly within the Elements UI.
