XML metadata import as overwrite

Postby aguen » Tue Oct 09, 2012 2:05 am

In our workflow we have the most valid article metadata (author names and affiliations, abstract, keywords) included in our XML galleys while the metadata provided by authors during submission often are incomplete, preliminary or faulty. That's why we would like to import the metadata into OJS overwriting the existing metadata values of submitted articles. This would be a tremendous improvement for our workflow as we would not have to update manually all article level metadata.

Is there anyone who has a solution or workaround for this problem? There is a related topic here:
