SWORD (Simple Web-service Offering Repository Deposit) is a protocol for interoperable deposit between repository platforms. It was developed by a JISC project during 2007, followed by the SWORD v2 project in 2011. See www.swordapp.org for further info.
Thank you for your work.
The SWORD protocol is a really important part of the digital repository landscape, and this project is a key part of the SWORD community.
