article batch import, fields for book reviews

Postby jlaherty » Wed Jul 18, 2012 12:18 pm

Hello,
We're getting ready to batch import 100s of book review articles. I've learned that there is a new book review plug-in, which makes me wonder if the article batch import process has the facility to accept various metadata relevant to book reviews, like ISBN, book author/editor, publisher, etc. The DTD does not include such fields, and I haven't seen any XML examples for article imports that do either, but in the event that the article batch import process would know that to do with a field coded as ISBN, for instance, it would be helpful to know this as soon as possible.

Thank you,
Jennifer Laherty

Hi Jennifer,

The current import process is independent of the books for review plugin and does not include the ability to import book metadata along with the submission.

But I have filed your suggestion as a possible enhancement for a future release of OJS.

Cheers,
Michael
