  • Automatic enrichment of metadata:
  • Exports formats:
    • DOAJ (export one document or a whole published volume) using DOAJ Schema
    • The new collected metadata have been added to Datacite, Crossref and DOAJ export formats

See for instance this example of an article automatically enriched with metadata:  doi.org/10.2168/LMCS-12(2:7)2016

We would like to acknowledge OpenAIRE and the services included in the OpenAIRE Nexus project: funding from the European Commission grant 101017452 “OpenAIRE Nexus – OpenAIRE-Nexus Scholarly Communication Services for EOSC users”.

  • Browse by volume: new parameter to allow to display empty volumes. Default value is still no (only show volumes with papers published in the volume)
  • #186: Editors-in-chief can now report a conflict of interest. (Sign in an admin as another user: the real identity is now saved.)


  • Fixed a display bug on the portal in connected mode (used by Episciences staff only)
  • Failed to edit another account’s profile from the user management page.
  • Impossibility to validate the profile if the user does not have an account in the application
