am sorry to tell that our online converter works only for our particular journal (tatup.de) so far.
The python script reads a defined Excel table and writes an XML document ( that can be imported with OJS’s XML native import tool. However, the structure of the XML document is so far exactly adapted to the requirements of the tatup journal (English / German meta-data, certain journal categories, DOI generation). The program serves its purpose - facilitating the entry of the data. However, the code is moderately written and commented, since this project has mainly been a project for me to procrastinate my philosophy dissertation. If there is someone interested (@jeremywiebe? - sorry, didn’t see your post earlier), I would try to comment and expalin the code so that someone could take over and further develop the project into a tool that is truly useful for everyone.
