Colectica Portal is a web application, powered by Colectica Repository, which enables data and metadata publication and discovery.
To see several live portals available to the public, please see our Longitudinal and Repeated Data Portal examples.
Every item maintained by the Colectica Repository has a dedicated page. The page displays all information about the item, along with a version history.
In cases where an item is documented in more than one language, the user may choose which language or languages are displayed.
In addition to displaying the contents of any item from the Colectica Repository, the page for an item allows an authorized user to annotate the item in several ways.
Users are able to comment on items, fostering discussion and collaboration.
Users can rate items. Rating information may be used to rank search results and to highlight popular items on Colectica Portal’s main page or a study’s main page.
Colectica Portal can be configured as a public web site, or restricted only to users who have authorized accounts.
Users can be assigned one or more roles which provide different authorization levels for searching, viewing, and annotating items.
User and role management is provided by Colectica Repository.
