SoftwareThe eSciDoc software is not a single package to download, but a set of services and solutions (applications) from which you can select the ones you are interested in.
Basically, the eSciDoc software stack falls into three categories:
Applications are the end-user applications for researchers and librarians
aggregate functionality provided by the services of the eSciDoc Infrastructure and offer higher-level and more application-oriented functionality
services provide the basic and common functionality and is a prerequisite for all eSciDoc Applications and most eSciDoc Services
The three categories are not layers of a software architecture in a strict way. Applications can invoke methods provided by the eSciDoc Infrastructure, thus bypassing the intermediate eSciDoc Services.
