OAI support for deleted records in OJS

Postby libsupport » Thu Mar 31, 2011 2:06 am

Hello OJS devs,

I would like to know if there is a plan to include support for OAI persistent/transient handling of deleted records (in compliance to the OAI-PMH standard). From what I see in line 282 of /lib/pkp/classes/oai/OAI.inc.php, the policy deletedRecord=no is hardcoded:
"\t\t<deletedRecord>no</deletedRecord>\n" . // FIXME Support deleted records?

It would be REALLY useful for an external harvester to know if a record in the listset is deleted (as opposed to non-existent). From what i see a similar request has been made in 2009 for OHS: http://pkp.sfu.ca/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=4927

Thanks in advance,

Hi Theodoros,

While we'd like to add tombstone support, it's not currently a priority for us. If you think you might be able to contribute this support, I'd be happy to talk about approaches.
