Research repository software

Enabling research outputs related to a project to be stored

Rich functionality combined with integrated workflow and extensive reporting

“Remarkably flexible… A major advance in repository software.”

Single repository for all research

We provide a single repository for all research, enabling all research outputs related to a project to be stored together and searched simultaneously.

Our flexible data model can represent any type of information and manage datasets, traditional and non-traditional output types in one repository.

Publishing research portfolios

Publishing research portfolios

We support the rich variety of research outputs from practice based research due to its highly flexible metadata, configurable visual display, elegant collections, and portfolio functionality.

Real-time reporting

Get reports that provide a comprehensive real-time picture of every aspect of the repository.

We provide integrated support for managing research assessment exercises, including REF and ERA, with fully pluggable and configurable processes to fit your institution’s processes. Clear and simple reports give Unit of Assessment Leads and REF and Repository Managers real-time visibility of the current state of REF readiness.

Real-time reporting

Integrates perfectly

Repository provides an extensive API for publishing and receiving machine-readable structured data in open formats. As well as standards based APIs, our open server-side API makes it easy to support custom integrations.

We support direct harvesting from external services, minimizing manual data entry by researchers. Encrypted data is transferred to dedicated preservation services for long-term preservation and storage.

Our software can integrate with an institution’s authentication systems enabling users to login with their usual username and password, and can receive enhanced information from university HR and Student Record Systems.

Reassuringly secure

Repository is provided as an ISO27001 certified service.

Cayuse’s focus on security makes it the reassuring choice for storing sensitive data and managing embargoed or restricted files.

Managing restricted access files

Managing restricted access files

Our focus on security and easy-to-use access request workflows enables restricted files to be managed confidently in an open repository.

Requests are routed to the repository manager and author. On approval, users can be required to agree to a license and are granted access to the files for a limited period. All requests and downloads are logged for auditing.

Every part of the access request process is configurable for each institution.

Streamlined ingest workflow

Our comprehensive and flexible workflow system streamlines the approval of submitted outputs.

We support plug-ins to generate and assign DOIs. We also support multiple embargo periods on a single record and integrate with SHERPA tools to provide useful information on funder and journal requirements.

Your repository, your branding

Your repository, your branding

Every aspect of the public portal is customizable, from the kinds of information it displays, to the way that information is structured and presented.

Using open tools, our flexible toolkit provides institution web teams with full control over all HTML generated, and can modify the HTML, CSS and templates of the public portal to match the look and layout of the institution’s visual identity.
