For the digital version of a research document, see eprint
The EPrints software is not to be confused with "Eprints
" (or "e-prints"), which are preprints
(before peer review
) and postprints
(after peer review), of research journal articles (eprints = preprints + postprints).
The EPrints software was enthusiastically received
and became the first and one of the most widely used
free open access, institutional repository software, and it has since inspired the development of other software that fulfil a similar purpose
Version 3 of the software was officially released on 24 January 2007 at the Open Repositories 2007 Conference
and was described by its developers as "a major leap forward in functionality, giving even more control and flexibility to repository managers, depositors, researchers and technical administrators." 
Version 3 of the software introduced a (Perl-based) plugin
architecture for importing and exporting data, converting objects (for search engine indexing) and user interface widgets
Configuring an EPrints repository involves modifying configuration files written in Perl
. The appearance of a repository is controlled by HTML templates, CSS
stylesheets and inline images. While EPrints is shipped with an English translation it has been translated to other languages through (redistributable) language-specific XML phrase files. Existing translations include Bulgarian, French, German, Hungarian, Italian, Japanese, Russian, Spanish and Ukrainian.
