Re: [EP-tech] BibTeX importing

Hi Francis,

For EPrints 3.3 it can be found at [EPRINTS_PATH]/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Import/BibTeX.pm on 3.4 it can be found at [EPRINTS_PATH]/flavours/pub_lib/plugins/EPrints/Plugin/Import/BibTeX.pm.  However, I would not advise editing this file directly.  Rather I would extend the class in your archive as cfg/plugins/EPrints/Plugin/Import/LocalBibTeX.pm and add the following lines to your archive's cfg/cfg.d/plugins.pl

$c->{plugin_alias_map}->{"Import::BibTeX"} = "Import::LocalBibTeX";

$c->{plugin_alias_map}->{"Import::LocalBibTeX"} = undef;

Then in LocalBibTeX.pm your code should look something like this:

package EPrints::Plugin::Import::LocalBibTeX;

use EPrints::Plugin::Import::BibTeX;
use strict;

our @ISA = qw/ EPrints::Plugin::Import::BibTeX /;

sub new
        my( $class, %params ) = @_;

        my $self = $class->SUPER::new( %params );

        # Alter plugin attributes if you want
        $self->{name} = "Local BibTeX";

        return $self;

sub convert_input
        my ( $plugin, $input_data ) = @_;

        my $epdata = $plugin->SUPER::convert_input( $input_data );

        # Add code to do extra BibTeX to epdata conversion here. 

        return $epdata;

Dear List Members, we import Scopus records of our institute to our
eprints repository every week. There is a need for us to import a few
additional fields like references and funding agency details. By
default, references and funding agency details are not imported
through the BibTeX plugin. Can someone please let me know where to
control the importing through the BibTex plugin?

Thanks and regards, Francis
