ANDS Online Services Release 13 gives Research Data Australia and ANDS Collections Registry more options for users and data providers.
Research Data Australia
Export collection references to EndNote
Research Data Australia users will now have the option to export selected collection references to Thomson Reuters EndNote product or any other bibliographic management software that supports the Research Information Systems (RIS) format.
A number of Theme pages are now available for browsing by Research Data Australia users. Theme pages bring together related content around a particular subject and provide an alternative path to discovery of data through thematic browsing. This development was supported by software changes made in Release 11 and Release 12. Do you have a new Theme Page in mind? Why not suggest it through Research Data Australia's Feedback / Contact Us form or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
More search engine-friendly URLs
Research Data Australia records now have shorter URL “slugs” making those records easier to find when using search engines such as Google.

ANDS Collections Registry
Thomson Reuters DCI export options
An option has been added to the Data Source Account Settings page which after consultation with the Data Source Administrator, allows ANDS to expose a provider’s records to the Thomson Reuters Data Citation Index (Note: This option is currently available to ANDS Registry Administrators. Please email email@example.com for assistance)
ANDS Harvester enhancements
The ANDS Harvester now provides further support for schema agnostic metadata feeds and alternative harvest methods as well as improved performance and error reporting for Data Source Administrators. Crosswalks for additional harvest methods and metadata types can be added to the ANDS Registry as needed. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in CKAN or CSW harvest methods. Learn more about the harvest methods and find out how to install the new Harvester now!
