It may sound obvious but I don’t get the meaning and use of the
publisherRecordId that is exposed in OJS XML export to DOAJ – or maybe I encountered a bug.
the only doc I found is in DOAJ website and says that the
An ID assigned to this article by its publisher and supplied to DOAJ via metadata upload. Not guaranteed to be unique or otherwise useful in any context, simply a way for the publisher to refer to this article.
In my platform (actually OJS 2.4.8-2) the publisherRecordId is always different from the actual article ID that is used for URL, backend and so on (and that we are using to refer to articles).
Am I missing something here?
Maybe some previous customization is breaking something?
