i’m trying to migrate content from an old online journal into a new OJS 3.1.1 instance on my localhost. The errors that system throws at me are following:
Input is not proper UTF-8, indicate encoding ! Bytes: 0xF8 0xED 0x76 0xE1 The document has no document element.
I’m using the sample XML file provided in the importexport/native folder and I’m populating the required elements and attributes with python script. The weird thing is that, when I try to manually fill out the sample.xml template and upload it everything seems just fine, but if I try to import my python generated xml file(which looks exactly the same), the system gives me the above mentioned errors. Any advice will be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.
PS: I am pulling all the data I can get from the old website of the journal with regards to articles as well as issues. My question is, is there a way to import these articles in the respected issues at the same time ? So the end goal would be to have OJS instance populated with articles in respected issues.
