Dear Nason

Many thanks for pointing out. Good to take note. Btw – what version of DSpace is the most recent and stable at this stage? And if one wants to have ORCID ID as a meteadata field, which version do you recommend? ASSAf IR is on 5.5. Would appreciate your advise so much.

Kind regards

Thanks Ina for the link.

The report seems rather old as they are comparing a DSpace 3+. For example where they say it is not mobile friendly but as of DSpace 5+ it is one can use Mirage2 UI (XMLUI) and a Bootstrap based UI (JSPUI) - just to pick one of the attributes the report uses for comparison.
