The TextGrid Publish tool allows users to permanently publish the files that they have used in the TextGrid Lab in the Repository. Only Editions and Collections can be published. Project Managers have the sole right to publish them.
When published, the metadata will be validated automatically. The Objects are freely accessible and searchable on www.textgridrep.de after publishing and accessible via their URI in the link like http://textgridrep.org/textgrid:vqn2.0. All published Objects receive a persistent identifier (such as hdl:11858/00-1734-0000-0005-1424-B) and all data are migrated to a static storage with backups, duplicated, and long term archive services. The PIDs can be resolved via http://hdl.handle.net/11858/00-1734-0000-0005-1424-B or any other Handle resolver.
