i'm thinking of an eprints plugin for automatic mint of DOI
identifiers using the datacite provider.
Datacite offer (for his members) an http api for generation of
The workflow has two steps:
(a) generate the DOI for an URL
(b) send metadata in xml for the previously generated identifier
the (a) should be easy, with a synchronous call:
i'm thinking to add a boolean and a text field to eprints.
the boolean fields is showed somewhere in the workflow, if checked
eprints_fields_automatic.pl will trigger the call to the api, and save
DOI. at this point the identifier is usable and resolvable
this code is reusable:
the (b) step, even if is not mandatory, will require to export the
metadata in the datacite schema
and store for the identifier.
This activity could slow the edit interface if made with a synchronous call,
how do you suggest to do?
the Event plugin could be a solution?
Is yet developed something similar?
