SWORD from OJS to DSpace

Postby josipkp » Tue May 08, 2012 2:51 pm


We updated to OJS 2.3.7 and tried to use SWORD to export articles from OJS to DSpace.
The process completed, but in DSpace, the metadata dc.subject, dc.date.issued, dc.identifier.url (created here to avoid to use dc.identifier.uri) and dc.relation.ispartof are inside dc.identifier.citation:

@article{, author = {Ingryd Felipe e Antonio Gomes}, title = { A abordagem do álcool no contexto do ensino fundamental: a reconstrução socioimaginária dos docentes }, journal = {Revista Latino-Americana de Enfermagem}, year = {2010}, keywords = { Consumo de Bebidas Alcoólicas;Educação em Saúde;venção Primária;Saúde Escolar }, abstract = { O consumo de álcool [...] pedagógicas. }, url = {http://[...]/ojs/index.php/rlae/article/view/4241} }

The mets.xml exported by OJS don't have some similar to
epdcx:propertyURI="http://purl.org/dc/elements/1.1/subject" and so.

I read about other institutions doing this exchange without problem.
I'm doing something wrong or it is necessary to change the code?

Thank in advance,
Josi Perez

Hi Josi,

The SWORD extract is generated using the swordapp-php library; see classes/sword/OJSSwordDeposit.inc.php for the code that maps an OJS article into the swordapp-php library. (There are details on the library itself at http://php.swordapp.org/). It's possible that either 1) the mapping from OJS needs to be improved (in OJSSwordDeposit.inc.php) or the library itself needs new options to be made available for the extracted XML. We'd be happy to take contributions for improving the mapping, and the author of that library is also very receptive.
