Getting StartedYou are more than welcome to try out, use, or re-purpose the eSciDoc software. The first step is to download the software, which is distributed under the OSI-certified Common Development and Distribution License (CDDL).
eSciDoc consists of various software components. A good start is to download, install, and test the eSciDoc Core Services (Infrastructure), which are a prerequisite for (nearly) all other eSciDoc software components. If you intend to develop your own eSciDoc Solutions, this is probably all you need to install.
If you are interested in installing one of the existing soolutions (e.g., Publication Management), the next step is to download the required software components and install them.
