I'm not a PKP developer, but I'd like to help. I'm not sure if I could get a full-blown OJS plugin done. However, if you (and maybe also the PKP team) could answer me a few questions, I'll see what I can do. So here we go:
1) Obi, are you comfortable with running an XSLT transformation on an XML file? (It's rather easy with little GUI tools like e.g. Antilles XML
). In this case I'll provide an XSLT file that will transform the OJS article export into something Ebsco could use.
2) Can you get a more detailed specification from Ebsco? The description that was linked here in this discussion ("Data Delivery Information") thread a while ago is extremely unspecific.
3) Would you be willing to share a sample export of one of your journal's issues with me? (Just using the issue export in OJS and send me the xml file or attach it here?)
4) Now something for the developer's team: I'm only comfortable doing the processing in XSLT 2.0, as I would like to write several distinct files and might have to set up some XSL-function for processing the BASE64 encoded PDFs. If I'll get the EBSCO transformation done and would like to try making a plugin out of it, I couldn't reuse it in the realm of php, where libxslt/xsltproc is only supporting XSLT 1.0, right? Do you know a way how to enable PHP to run XSLT 2.0 transformations?
