RJ Broker delivers its first test transfers

March 27, 2013

The Repository Junction Broker is a middleware tool to automate delivery of research output from different data suppliers - mainly publishers and subject repositories - to multiple repositories. The RJ Broker is currently undergoing extensive testing with the main repository platforms before becoming a service. Among the first set of RJ Broker tests, 60,000 Europe PubMed Central articles were successfully trasferred last week into a test EPrints platform at EDINA during a 3-day process. This amounts to nearly a month's feed into Europe PMC by publishers and researchers.

The target EPrints test repository was configured to show the input distribution by repository into which the content would be distributed were this a live service. See below the number of articles that would be transferred into different repositories - covering exemplars across the whole world.
