TIND Announces Author Profiles for TIND RDM and TIND IR

Released October 20, 2023

Oslo, Norway – October 20, 2023.  TIND is pleased to announce the launch of Author Profiles as the highlight of the 1.19 release. Author Profiles showcases the works of local authors in a dedicated author page and elevates the institutional repository's visibility with customizable branding. Authors create and manage their own profiles, supported, if needed, by local administration. The result is a uniform and easily navigable directory of local scholars. Author Profiles blends seamlessly into TIND’s submission dashboard workflow, providing a comprehensive tool for managing institutional content from submission to discovery.
