[EP-tech] Re: duplicate detection in EPrints 3.3

OK.  I just found the problem: we hadn’t run the “issues_audit” script, which is required for reporting the plugin based issues.

This important script should be added to the list here: http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Bin/

Hi Rory,


Thank you!  Issues looks like what I should be using for this.


Based on the documentation of how Issues work, ticking “Live Archive” on the Item Status and leaving all other search options unchecked should display all issues of any type in the repository, right?

I always get “Search has no matches” on the Search for Issues interface, which is reassuring to some extent, but is there another way to double check that the issue tracking is working, and there are indeed no issues (such as title duplicates)?

Hi Tomasz,


Any reason not to use Issues for this?




You can design your own  issues to include authors too.

Subject: [EP-tech] duplicate detection in EPrints 3.3


I would like to run a script that will go through my repository (3.3.12) and report any likely duplicates based on title (and possibly author).

What is the best way of doing this?


I found the following two plugins in EPrints Files:

·         Sebastien Francois’ EPrints 2 script: http://files.eprints.org/107/

·         Jon Hallet’s EPrints 3>3.1  script: http://files.eprints.org/640/


In addition,

·         There is a title_duplicates script in /cgi/users/lookup/ http://wiki.eprints.org/w/Cgi/users/lookup/

·         Page 40 of this file (http://www.eprints.org/software/training/programming/api_techniques.pdf)  refers to a duplicate detection script in the bin folder as an example – I couldn’t find this script – probably just an example of what could be done.



Is the Jon Hallett’s script in EPrints Files the most up-to-date version available?

Has anyone created a Bazaar version for duplicate detection and/or is there is something more recent that I am missing?
