Publications Management for the EDRN Knowledge Environment

Project description

This product, eke.publications, provides display and RDF ingest of publications (articles, books, journal entries, etc.) for the Early Detection Research Network (EDRN) Knowledge Environment (EKE). EDRN uses the EKE to make it easy to discover, share, search for, and retrieve all of EDRN’s collective knowledge, including cancers and other diseases, biomarkers, specimens, investigators, participants, studies, protocols, and-as in the case of this product-publications.

Although intended for the EDRN public portal, it can be installed in any Plone compatible site.

This software is developed by the EDRN Informatics Center at JPL, operated by the California Institute of Technology, for NCI.


Use Buildout with the plone.recipe.zope2instance recipe.

  • Add eke.publications to the list of eggs to install, e.g.:

    eggs =
  • Re-run buildout, e.g. with:

    % ./bin/buildout

You can skip the ZCML slug if you are going to explicitly include the package from another package’s configure.zcml file.


What follows is a history of changes from release to release.

1.1.18 — Whaaaaaa?
