The validator tool was created to support the management of repositories. This tool allows to gauge the conformity level of repository with the guidelines defined for the project.

This portal provides a validation service where by filling out a form, the users can request, to be mailed, a repository validation report.

This service is one of the components from the project Repositórios Científicos de Acesso Aberto de Portugal. RCAAP project is an initiative from UMIC Knowledge Society Agency, developed by FCCN - Fundação para a Computação Científica Nacional, with the technical and scientific collaboration from Minho University.

All information about the RCAAP project is available on the project website at: http://projecto.rcaap.pt.
