Preparing xml files for registration

If your organization uses one of the following journal hosting platforms: PKP OJS or Dspace, you can transfer datasets to our server.

If your organization does not use these systems, you can work through the program Hephaestus developed RADS. The process of marking metadata in Hephaestus is similar to the one in Russian Science Index, the output is a file with the metadata for the DOI registration, which is also automatically sent for registration. Hephaestus is also able to generate xml for Russian Science Index and DOAJ.
