Zenodo Integration

As of RSpace 1.88, we integrate with Zenodo to enable researchers to export their documents and data to the repository.

Before starting

  1. Ensure that your RSpace server has Zenodo enabled and configured. If it is not then on the Apps page Zenodo will be marked as "Unavailable" and a system administrator will need to follow the steps described in: Introduction to configuring RSpace Apps
  2. Enable the Zenodo integration in the Apps page, just as you would for any other third-party integration. See Apps Introduction. You'll need to provide an API key which can be acquired from the Settings page of the Zenodo server that has been configured for your RSpace deployment.

On Zenodo's site, go to Settings, then Applications. Tap "New Token", call it RSpace, and copy then token into the RSpace apps page. Back on the Applications page, under Personal access tokens, you should see RSpace listed. Once we have the API key token you don't need to store it anywhere else.

  1. Clicking the link to Zenodo, will open the new Zenodo upload with your document attached. From here, the remaining required metadata can be added and the deposit published.

Attaching Argos DMPs

When exporting to Zenodo, it is possible to reference a Data Management Plan (DMP) imported from Argos.

  1. Import a DMP into a Gallery, as per the Argos steps.
  2. When exporting to Zenodo, enable DMP selection using the switch.
Screenshot of the third panel of the export dialog. Switch labelled "Associate export with Data Management Plans (DMPs)" is enabled and highlighted.
  1. Choose the DMP and complete the export.
  2. Visiting Zenodo, you should now see the DMP's DOI referenced in the deposit.
