Thanks Andrew - for context I'm interested in comparing alternative metrics for OA content for which I need DOIs to run through the altmetric API...might be able to get from the CORE API or from IRUS.

I don't have a solution to this other than the JSON export option, however if there is a solution to restrict output in this way (I.e, only getting doi's back) then that would be handy, as a script I'm trying to write to harvest information from a number of citation API's gets stuck at the EPrints stage when the JSON response overloads it's allocated memory allowance! Reducing the data it's getting back would be very handy.

Subject: [EP-tech] Retrieving a list of DOIs

Is there an easy way for me to retrieve a list of raw DOIs from EPrints for a given collection?

I've tried the various export options, most don't appear to include DOI, except JSON and then in an odd format that doesn't resolve...
