[EP-tech] Import DOI Issue

Hi,

This thread is a bit old: we tried to change the URL to http://doi.crossref.org/openurl but we still get an error message (and not the 301 one):

Unhandled exception in Import::DOI: Can't call method "getDocumentElement" on a↲
n undefined value at /opt/eprints/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Import/DOI.pm line 77↲
, <$fh> line 2.

Unhandled warning in Import::DOI: [Fri Feb 17 09:27:01 2017] -e: http error : U↲
nknown IO error

the rest in French:

Le test a échoué : 0 enregistrement(s) trouvé(s) avant qu'une erreur n'interrompe le test. Vérifier que le bon format d'importation a été sélectionné et que les enregistrements sont complets

In fact, changing the URL doesn't make a difference in the error message.

Any advice would be great,

Regards,

Hi Everyone,

We came across an issue with the DOI Import plugin no longer working. It looks like this is a result of updates across all the Crossref sites and so the base URL it was using ("http://www.crossref.org/openurl") was returning a 301 "Moved Permanently" response.

I've applied a quick fix that updates the URL to "http://doi.crossref.org/openurl" which seems to have fixed the issue. 
It's on GitHub at
https://github.com/eprints/eprints/commit/24de2fc05604aa7f0d34677ed2eb470e4f425a9d

Many thanks,

Will
