GNU EPrints is a solution for sites wanting to set up archives. By default it is configured to be an archive of research publications but can be easily altered. It is scalable and robust; all metadata is stored in UTF-8 rather than ASCII, and all "phrases" the system uses in user interaction are stored in an XML file for easy editing or translating. The system is built around Apache, mod_perl, and MySQL. Submissions are made via the Web and not entered into the main archive until approved by an editor.
