CrossRef XML file generating empty issue DOI element

Postby eblwelch » Wed Aug 21, 2013 8:09 am

Hi,
While getting started moving our journal to OJS we encountered a problem exporting CrossRef XML data for assigned DOIs. Background: we publish one volume per year (no issues). Problem: the CrosRef export XML file includes is a blank DOI data element for the issue, causing CrossRef to reject the entire submission because no empty elements are allowed. I suspect there is some journal configuration setting in OJS that is causing the error, but nothing I've tried solves the problem.
Has anyone else encountered or solved this problem?
Thanks,
James

Hi James,

Oh, sorry :-((( I think an if statement is missing in the code, to ensure that there is an issue DOI to generate the XML element.
I will correct it and send you a link to the patch.
