Re: [EP-tech] non working DataciteDoi plugin (Recollect installed)

Hi Yuri,

the two plugins work quite differently.

The FIXED eprints branch supports only DataCite Metadata Schema 2.2, see https://github.com/eprints/datacite/blob/fixed/cfg/cfg.d/z_datacitedoi.pl
It has operates on a fix set of fields.

The EprintsUG plugin supports DataCite Metadata Schema 4.0 . It supports any set of fields and must be adapted to a specific repo. The fields in a repo are mapped to methods that must be specified in lib/cfg.d/z_datacite_mapping.pl (https://github.com/eprintsug/DataCiteDoi/blob/master/lib/cfg.d/z_datacite_mapping.pl )

This algorithm has its pros and cons:
- pro: very versatile and modular, the Export plugin itself must not be modified. Instead a config file can be adapted.
- con: The loop over all fields is inefficient (https://github.com/eprintsug/DataCiteDoi/blob/64956b6d4b461159ac2ae35df14105cff4a86171/lib/plugins/EPrints/Plugin/Export/DataCiteXML.pm#L62-L68 ). For DataCite Metadata Schema, there are 19 elements. A large repo may have 100 fields or more. 80% of the loop are just overhead. Imagine having to spend 80% overhead for exporting a repo of 100'000 records.
- con: dependencies between fields  are not considered; workarounds in the mapping methods must be implemented. This gets especially problematic if either of two or more fields map to the same DataCite element, but the field values have to be inserted in nested sub-elements.
- con: only eprint table fields are mapped, but there are several document table fields (format, size, license) that must be used for DataCite Metadata Schema 4.x, too, and need  additional calls within DataCiteXML.pm
- as you pointed out, there is no order of fields. While the description of the DataCite Metadata Schema (https://schema.datacite.org/meta/kernel-4.1/doc/DataCite-MetadataKernel_v4.1.pdf ) lists them in a specific order, the schema itself (https://schema.datacite.org/meta/kernel-4.1/metadata.xsd ) requires no specific order. However, for readability of the output, I would have prefered the order as outlined in the PDF.
- there are no checks against mandatory fields

I have just recently implemented the EprintsUG DataCite XML export plugin to our repository and also adapted to DataCite Metadata Schema 4.1. It should cover all DataCite elements. We need it to produce SIPs for a long-term archive project (DLCM) as well as parts of it for exporting Funding data to OpenAire (Currently, funding information is not displayed on the production system, but that will come soon).
Example output: http://www.zora.uzh.ch/cgi/export/eprint/150598/DataCiteXML/zora-eprint-150598.xml

Not sure if my code will help - some parts are highly repository-implementation specific (e.g. document types, language codes (ISO639-3) etc., funder data model which is already DataCite compatible and further).

 this version should works:

(note the FIXED name of the branch ;-) )

while this:


lead to a malformed datacite (but aim to support all the field, maybe
they use exactly the datacite metadata??)

Please, can someone fix bazaar including the working DOI plugin? I think
the eprintsug works for a particular site, while eprints/datacite branch
fixed should work in almost every 3.3.15 eprints site.

Do you agree?
