Additional Fields

Postby sarangi » Thu Nov 29, 2007 10:13 am

I followed the native.dtd for importing metadata into OJS through xml file. However, the metadata that I need to import are more than allowed by native.dtd fields. For example, I need to add birth date for authors of articles but there is no such field in the native.dtd.

How do I go about importing those additional metadata into OJS?

Any help is highly appreciated.

Hi Sarangi,

You'll need to modify OJS to achieve this. OJS 2.2 (due for release very shortly) includes a metadata storage overhaul that will make this task easier and more maintainable, so you might want to look at the CVS version before you start.
