Hi Alec,
Upgraded the journal to 2.4.3 thinking it would solve this problem.
Still the same.
Still some issues with the Citation Markup Assistant (CMA)!
Editors are having to put citations manually in the CMA. But after those are done in the CMA window, they don't show up in the summary section, down in the metadata.
Moreover, citations put manually, while editing the metadata section, they don't show up in the CMA window.

We are preparing to get the journal indexed and would need to get this sorted out, if you could help please.
Best wishes.

Hi Eddy,

I've spoken to our team internally about this. Our situation is that the developer who wrote the CMA is no longer with us, and we're in the process of replacing it with another service that's part of our longer-term XML transformation goals. In the meantime we're not going to be able to support it particularly well. We're aware that one of the CrossRef services that it relies upon has been deprecated, so it's possible you're hitting that situation. However, beyond the documentation that already exists for it (e.g. nobody on the team is familiar with that aspect of OJS.

Hello brothers in despair ;) of citation extraction

I have spent some time watching apache error log file. I observed missing some of crucial packages of perl that made citation assistant stuck at the very beginning.
Despite the 2 packages declared explicitely in setup I have installed some more :

sudo apt-get install php5-curl ( i got some errors on the lack)
sudo apt-get install curl libcurl3 libcurl3-dev
wget ... .71.tar.gz
wget ... .20.tar.gz (required by above)

... and I got partial success - have a list of publications (not parsed yet) but at least OJS knows they are there.

Still in log there are messages:
"[Tue Feb 04 10:05:24 2014] [error] [client IP] NOTICE: Use of undefined constant LINK_ACTION_TYPE_GET - assumed 'LINK_ACTION_TYPE_GET' (/var/www/ojs/lib/pkp/classes/controllers/grid/citation/, referer: http://hostIP/ojs/index.php/SI/editor/s ... tations/11 "

I hope it might help a little.

Looking forward to hear about any success
