[EP-tech] Re: DataCite registration plug-in setup



Hi Jana,

As it happens, I've been working on two repositories with a very similar profile to yours. Both have Recollect (customised) + DataCite to register DOIs

I've found and overcome a few issues with the DataCite plugin myself. These were not related to integration with the recollect plugin, but I can only speak for my repos in that respect.

If you show us the contents of your datacitedoi.pl file I can see if I can spot any miss-configuration (please don't paste in your DataCite credentials!)

For example a trailing slash is needed for the mds url.

The plugin does a poor job at passing on the error messages that the datacite API reports, so as it stands you have guess what the problem might be.

I intend to package up and publish a version of the plugin logs the API errors (+some other features and fixes).

Maybe I'll get a chance before or during the repository Fringe next week.

Thanks,

Rory

Hi Jana,

I've been doing some work on meshing the plugin with Recollect and have it working through test.  Happy to talk through what I've done.

Dear All,

I would like to reach some institution, which is using EPrints for research data and DataCite DOI registration plug-in http://bazaar.eprints.org/307/

We are using ReCollect plug-in within our EPrints installation and also the DataCite registration plug-in.
We did quite lot of customizing to the ReCollect plug-in so it better suits needs of our researchers.

Right now we are struggling with the test setup - we would like to connect our test system (EPrints + customized ReCollect + DataCite registration plug-in) via test API to test MDS, but wasn?t successful until now.
Is there anybody who is using this plug-in and would be able to help us further?

Thank you very much in advance.
With kind regards
Jana
