Introduction

Document Management is the initial stage of most electronic publishing endeavours. It involves organising documents in such a way that they can be retrieved and accessed on demand, shared selectively, integrated with the work of others and preserved forever. Publishing of documents is another very important aspect of document management. This project is aimed at producing a document management tool that is integrated into the Windows Operating System. Features of this software include asynchronous version control of documents and the functionality to publish research documents to conferences.

Overview

The  general architecture of the system is depicted in the diagram below.

                     

The User Interface that emulates the Windows Explorer and the Email Gateway for the asynchronous version control are implemented by Kumoyo. These are discussed here.

The Publishing Tool for publishing documents from the workspace to publish documents to conference repositories and the metadata extractor tool are implemented by Lefa. These are discussed here.
