Deleted records in OAI plugin

Hello dear friends,

I’m working on OJS 2.4.8 and I want to know how the plugin for OAI-PMH works on delete records? Is it possible to re-index to remove deleted records?

I have a problem with a deleted record with a not valid section abbrevation, but I could not find that article in database to change its section.

Thank you,

Hi @lcmartinezru,

OJS uses “tombstones” to refer to deleted records. If you want to remove these, you can do so from the data_object_tombstones, data_object_tombstone_settings, and data_object_tombstone_oai_set_objects tables.
