Re: [EP-tech] Import DOI Issue


This thread is a bit old: we tried to change the URL to http://doi.crossref.org/openurl but we still get an error message (and not the 301 one):

Unhandled exception in Import::DOI: Can't call method "getDocumentElement" on a↲
n undefined value at /opt/eprints/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Import/DOI.pm line 77↲
, <$fh> line 2.

Unhandled warning in Import::DOI: [Fri Feb 17 09:27:01 2017] -e: http error : U↲
nknown IO error

the rest in French:

Le test a échoué : 0 enregistrement(s) trouvé(s) avant qu'une erreur n'interrompe le test. Vérifier que le bon format d'importation a été sélectionné et que les enregistrements sont complets

In fact, changing the URL doesn't make a difference in the error message.

Any advice would be great,

Objet : [EP-tech] Import DOI Issue

Hi Everyone,

We came across an issue with the DOI Import plugin no longer working. It looks like this is a result of updates across all the Crossref sites and so the base URL it was using ("http://www.crossref.org/openurl";) was returning a 301 "Moved Permanently" response.

I've applied a quick fix that updates the URL to "http://doi.crossref.org/openurl"; which seems to have fixed the issue. 
It's on GitHub at

Many thanks,
