A website platform for Open Science
Drupal Distribution with advanced organic groups system for management of workgroups. The distro is aimed at organisations that do scientific research or provide infrastructure for scientific research. The core functionality provides workgroups where assets, deliverables, and other documents can be stored, as well as a platform for group discussions.
Furthermore the distro provides many features for reporting and PR management such as a news section, blog section, governance section, showcases section, an events calendar and tools for researchers to submit new research initiatives to the website.
Status May 2013: Testing the system in production environments, making small adjustments
As of now there is no installation profile, only a collection of modules. I'm looking for opportunities for funded or collaborative development of the system.
An entity based distribution
Open Science uses modern Drupal 7 development practices and makes extensive use of Entity API and entity based modules. Why does this matter? This means that your content is stored in a consistent manner and is easily addressable by powerful toolkits like Views, Rules, Apache Solr, entity cache etc.
