[EP-tech] Re: Error downloading Romeo autocomplete file from eprints.org

Hi John,

At an educated guess, that looks a bit like a character set issue, possibly whether the ISSN is listed in the file with a hyphen or an em-dash (or an en-dash) and isn’t translating correctly into (or out of) UTF-8.

I currently have a similar issue with some internal data feeds causing me all manner of similar problems!

I’ve just tried – downloaded OK for me. If you want a copy some other way, let me know.


One thing I did notice in the file:

Some ISSNs are fine:

<li id="for:value:component:_issn">0091-7613</li>


Some look ‘interesting’:

<li id="for:value:component:_issn">0734&acirc;��7324</li>


<li id="for:value:component:_issn">0734&acirc;<80><93>7324</li>


Looking at the Sherpa API record for this journal: http://www.sherpa.ac.uk/romeo/api29.php?issn=0734-7324, there doesn’t look to be anything wrong.


I’m not sure what processing happens to turn the romeo data into the autocomplete data - can someone at EPS explain what’s going on?

I’m getting HTTP 502 or 504 responses when requesting the Romeo autocomplete file from http://romeo.eprints.org/romeo_journals.autocomplete since 26/10. Our last successful download would have been 19/10.


I assume that others are having the same problem?  Does anyone know if it’s being addressed?
