Importing Abstracts as HTML

Postby GennadyK » Thu Oct 25, 2007 2:34 pm


Is it possible to import abstracts as HTML files by URL - same way as we can do for an article using htmlgalley?
If not how we can do it, as we have them in HTML and would like to preserve HTML formatting.

Thank you,

Hi Gennady,

No, it's not currently possible -- when importing, galleys must be included in the XML import document. However, how are you creating the XML? There might be a way to script that tool to fetch the abstract. This will be highly dependent on the format your abstract is in, as abstract shouldn't contain any of the framing of an HTML document, which is one of the reasons we haven't included the ability to fetch abtracts from URLs.
