1) Scripts are provided to query periodically bibliographic databases such as: PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science

2) Deduplications can be used to merge found records in multiple sources or previously entered.

3) SOAP WebServices for READ-ONLY access to CRIS information

4) DSpace-CRIS is more machine friendly than never. It supports the following signposting patterns: Author, Identifier, Publication Boundary

5) Integrated with bibliometric database (PubMed Central Cited by, Scopus and Web of Science)

6) ORCiD integration for both public and member APIs
