Roadmap update

by Lars Holm Nielsen on July 16, 2019


Today, we have updated our public roadmap. Over the summer we have reduced development capacity as staff is on holidays, and thus we're focusing on minor improvements:

  • Citations: We're improving the regular updates of citation data from our data sources such as NASA ADS, OpenAIRE, CrossRef and EuropePMC.
  • GitHub improvements: We're making some minor optimizations in the release processing workflows.
  • Infrastructure: We're growing rapidly, and thus we're in need of upgrading our Elasticsearch cluster.

Our biggest target right now is the preparations for importing a dataset of 300.000 biodiversity treatments records into Zenodo in collaboration with Plazi and Pensoft. We hope to be able to present this work around end-October. These improvements will bring support for geospatioal, temporal and method metadata to Zenodo.
