Maintenance notice

Starting time of maintenance break:
16.05.2018 at 13:00
Ending time of maintenance break:

Target of maintenance:
Description of maintenance work:
JYX is updated to use DSpace 6 institutional repository software and new server infrastructure. Appearance, functionality (e.g. license management), collection structure (e.g. theses) and data model (adoption of national metadata recommendation) are renewed. With the update, new JYX-related services of Open Science Centre are utilized to a greater extent, e.g. Heikki Rantatupa historical maps portal is moved to a new publishing platform and thesis publication forms are replaced with a new workflow solution.

Notes about the update:
  • Path dspace/ in JYX-related URL addresses is omitted, affecting all links to collections and items. Links from external pages to JYX will continue to work (excl. department-, discipline-, and publication series -related thesis collections) with redirection. URN links remain unchanged.
  • Simplestats application filters search bots with improved precision, affecting visible download statistics. Subset of 2009-2010 statistic data will be imported to the system later.
  • Search indexes and PDF thumbnails are updated during a day after the service break, affecting the data visible in the system. There can be additional outages with URN redirects or other JYX-related interfaces (e.g visibility of JYX metadata in Finna).
Nb. please log out of the system before the maintenance break to preserve unsaved data. During the break submissions to JYX (i.e. TUTKA, thesis forms) are disabled.

We apologise for possible inconveniences.
