[EP-tech] Re: Citation Import Plugin Error

Hi Sheraaz


What version of EPrints are you running?


The first thing to check is that the plugin and its parent class are both in the correct location, e.g., /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugins/Import/ and /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugins/Import/CitationService/.


Then check that archive/cfg/cfg.d/gscholar.pl exists and defines search_cites and search_title functions.


You might want to check that the eprints user has permission to read all of those files.


After that check that WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy is installed.

Subject: [EP-tech] Citation Import Plugin Error


Hi there


I have setup the citation import plugin on my repository however when running the import_citationdata or update_citatationdata commands I ran into the following error


Starting EPrints Repository.

Connecting to DB ... done.

Plugin 'Import::CitationService::GScholar' not found.

Ending EPrints Repository.


I have tried to debug the import_citationdata  file and it seems it fails  at the below given code.


$plugin = $session->plugin(


                Handler => $handler,

                net_retry => {

                        max => $net_retry_max,

                        interval => $net_retry_interval,


                parse_retry => {

                        max => $parse_retry_max,

                        interval => $parse_retry_interval,




Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
