[EP-tech] Re: Citation import plugin errors

Hi Paolo and Mark,

  Thanks for your ideas and feedback - I incidentally discovered the same problem - the epdata_to_dataobj being amended in eprints 3.3, so I took the old versions of Import.pm and TextFile.pm from 3.2, renamed those to ImportOld.pm and TextFileOld.pm and inherited from those instead, so as not to break any other plugins. So far it is working! 

  In terms of Scopus, the new system needs an API key which you can sign up for (replaces the old developer ID), and to get the XML response (atom feed) you need to be a subscriber of their service. Otherwise it is a JSON feed which is available. If you are a subscriber, the code I amended in the Scopus.pm plugin was in the URI construction and sending section to add some posted headers:

        # send the query to Scopus
        my $ua = LWP::UserAgent->new;
        $ua->default_header('X-ELS-APIKey' => "INSERT YOUR API KEY HERE");
        $ua->default_header('X-ELS-ResourceVersion' => "XOCS");
        $ua->default_header('ACCEPT' => "application/atom+xml");

        my $response = $ua->get( $quri );

It may be that someone wants to look into a JSON based alternative for non subscribers.

 Also in Scopus.pm I sometimes got unhandled errors when running the utf8::decode lines. I replaced this by adding use Encode and e.g.:

                $title = decode_utf8( $title );

instead of 


  Still finishing up things and testing here but if anyone is interested in this or is looking into the ISI/WOS plugin update please let me know.

Hi Mark and all,

maybe this patch to LogHandler is even better.

The only thing that it doesn't work no more is the output of the two strings

Item parsed.

It seems that EPrints::LogHandler::parsed() and
EPrints::LogHandler::output() method  aren't anymore called by
