Hi Sheraaz

What version of EPrints are you running?

The first thing to check is that the plugin and its parent class are both in the correct location, e.g., /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugins/Import/ and /opt/eprints3/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugins/Import/CitationService/.

Then check that archive/cfg/cfg.d/gscholar.pl exists and defines search_cites and search_title functions.

You might want to check that the eprints user has permission to read all of those files.

After that check that WWW::Mechanize::Sleepy is installed.

Subject: [EP-tech] Citation Import Plugin Error

Hi there

I have setup the citation import plugin on my repository however when running the import_citationdata or update_citatationdata commands I ran into the following error

Starting EPrints Repository.
Connecting to DB ... done.
Plugin 'Import::CitationService::GScholar' not found.
Ending EPrints Repository.

I have tried to debug the import_citationdata  file and it seems it fails  at the below given code.

$plugin = $session->plugin(
                Handler => $handler,
                net_retry => {
                        max => $net_retry_max,
                        interval => $net_retry_interval,
                parse_retry => {
                        max => $parse_retry_max,
                        interval => $parse_retry_interval,

Any ideas will be greatly appreciated.
