2. Check the FAQ to see if your question or error has already been resolved.

3. Post a question, but please, only after trying the above two solutions. If it's a workflow or usability question you should probably post to the OJS Editorial Support and Discussion subforum; if you have a development question, try the OJS Development subforum.

Automatically submit DOI information to CrossRef

After searching in the forums this is the only reference I found about this subject (posted by james: 15 Apr 2011):
It'd be great if OJS could submit the DOI information automatically, rather than rely on the Editor submitting manually after issue publication, but that's a service that Crossref themselves would have to provide.

I don't know when this changed but right now, if I read it right, CrossRef allows uploading:

Programming The Upload
Writing a program to perform the upload is a fairly simple process (in Java or Perl anyway). A fully functional Java program can be download from http://www.crossref.org/08downloads/doUpload.java. This program accepts either an XML file to deposit or a file (anything without a .XML extension) that is a list of XML files to deposit. It is run by issuing:
java doUpload <USR> <PWD> filename

In order to use this you will need a copy of a recent Java runtime and you'll need the HTTP Client library.
You may also submit a Batch Query using http://www.crossref.org/08downloads/doQPost.java
For more complete technical documentation please visit http://doi.crossref.org/doc/userdoc.html.

The CrossRef VBClient:
Alternatively, you may download, unzip and install the CrossRef VBClient. This simple Windows program allows you to upload files (deposits or queries) and to perform interactive queries. Simply enter your username and password and select 'XSD Deposit' (DTD Deposit is being phased out). Then (multi) select the files you wish to upload and select 'Do It'.

The "upload" feature would be a really nice add to the CrossRef XML plugin.

Is somebody coding or taking this in consideration?

Much agreed, and currently the CrossRef XML Export Plugin is not working with 2.4.3.

Hi all,

Automatic submission to CrossRef is a work in progress; we may have something to include in OJS 2.4.4, but I can't promise yet. Jamil, as for your trouble submitting to CrossRef, watch your other post.
