Updating journal url information

Postby ramon » Tue Jun 26, 2007 8:31 am

Hello all,

Does the Harvester allow the user that registered his repository to update the information?
I looked but could only find the option to register my repository, over and over...
Many users are complaining that their journals are not being harvested, and mostly because the url informed is incorrect.
Contacting the Harvester Administrator is not clear, as people look for a way to update their repository info automatically.

Any thoughts on implementing login and user information controls in the Harvester?

Hi Ramón,

Currently only the administrator can manage a repository. We've had a few requests for submitter-based repository management, and I'd certainly like to add support for it in the future, when we have the chance to work on it and work out all the security and permissions details.
