How to create XSD format for Index Copernicus?


#1

Hello,

I want to upload issues in Index Copernicus. However, there is no plugin for exporting XSD files in OJS 3.0.2. Is there any other way through which I can convert XML files into XSD and upload to Index Copernicus? Index Copernicus accepts only XSD files. I am using OJS 3.0.2


#2

I uploaded three issues all manually. So, I am also looking for this.

Yes, If we have to upload manually, it will be a big pain. I tried converting online, but it doesnt work.


#4

You could always use XSLT, but doing the first conversion would be a lot of work. https://www.w3schools.com/xml/xsl_intro.asp

Are you only uploading metadata?


#5

It was a pain in the a** really. But I had no alternatives. It took me a few days to upload three issues. I uploaded whole articles including references and .pdf files.

I would love to see a plugin which can automatically do most of the job. I dont know whether it is feasible.

Did anyone find a better way for Index Copernicus since the last discussion. They have deprecated the old format and have a new publisher panel now?

Hello,
anyone found a solution for xsd format?

We just registered to Index Copernicus and if there is no easier solution, it will be a lot of work to bring all retrospectie articles to index manually…


#8

We are in the same situation. Moreover the new publisher panel by Index Copernicus is very unstable and many things are not translated to English.


#9

I started manually…putting one bibliographic item by one is getting me crazy…

Hi all,

Can someone link to a schema or DTD for the import format? This conversion probably isn’t a priority for us to write at PKP, but I might be able to suggest some starting points.

Here is the link to the XSD. Thank you.

Hi @pcansf,

That’s a fairly simple schema, although it contains classifications that OJS doesn’t share, so some manual designation would be necessary. It would be possible to either write a stylesheet to convert OJS’s export XML into the required schema, or to write an export plugin to generate the Copernicus XML directly; if someone had the time to put into it, I’d recommend the latter. It would not be a complex task.

Hi all,
sorry to ask again.

But did anyone try to work on XML scheme like Alec suggested?

I am sorry, if I would have knowledge, I would do it by myself…But I do not know how to do it.

Wish you a nice day,

We have the same question.


#15

Me too. The same question and status as that of @martinca.


#16

A have written a simple export plug-in for copernicus citation index.
It works only with ojs 2.4.x.
Maybe it will be useful

Hi all,

@a-vodka, excellent, we’re always happy to see third-party plugin work! If you’re interested in getting a code review on this and having it added to the plugin, please let me know.

I feel its a must for all journal. I hope some one can port it to OJS 3.1+


#19

Ok. I’ll try to do it. But I need someone, who help me with testing.

I will help with testing.
