imeji - Publish Your Scientific Multimedia Data

The imeji software

imeji creates citable research assets by describing, enriching, sharing, exposing, linking and archiving data.

imeji is an open source software which offers a dedicated metadata management by supporting a non- restrictive metadata schema definition, as simple as liked or as complex as needed.

All objects within the imeji software have a unique identifier and therefore can be referenced in publications or reused in other contexts (dissemination). Large collections can be organized in different albums to focus special items of interest.

imeji is developed by the imeji community under the CDDL-License.
