These highly referenced guidelines are targeted at academic institutions
world wide, who want to start an online open access research repository
archive and who want to build long term support capacity for open
scholarship publishing practice.

The focus during development of the open system has been long term research
repository preservation and interoperability on the internet using the
self-hosting value proposition.

These guidelines are also an attempt to promote the use of a reference
architecture and software release cadence as best practices, for the
implementation of DSpace as a trusted institutional digital repository,
much the same as we did for our repository, SUNScholar.
