VOA3R portal Major release

The VOA3R portal  launched a major release last week.

With this update, we have exceed the barrier of 2.100.000 resources much of them complaining with VOA3R application profile level 4 or VOA3R application profile level 2. It means more metadata-rich resources, which allow us to show the user more useful information about them.

The effort done with VOA3R application profile, has lent us to start working in some new interesting functionalities for the portal, most important will be:

  •  “My research functionalities”: the vocabularies have been widely increased, which allows researchers to explain better their work.
  •  New functionalities for practitioners, for instance, the possibility to mark the resources as “Useful for practitioners”.
  •  New textual search filters: by repository, by date and by language.
  • Trials with multilingualism.

We have also made a great effort in usability issues,  fixing most of the problems reported during the pilot trials.
