    import via DOI, openurl etc fails because crossref.org now demands a new interface:

    http://www.crossref.org/openurl?pid=name@someplace.com&....

    with name@someplace.com some email address registered with crossref.org.

     
    • Hi Matt,

      it's correct that the CrossRef.org OpenURL resolver now requires users to have an account and to supply their login credentials in the 'pid' parameter of the DOI/OpenURL request. For more info please see:

      http://www.crossref.org/openurl
      http://sourceforge.net/forum/forum.php?thread_id=3274100&forum_id=218758

      To request a (free) account, complete the form at:

      http://www.crossref.org/requestaccount/

      After you've created & verified your account, enter your login credentials (which is now the email address you've used to register your account) in the '$crossRefReqDat' parameter (for refbase-0.9.5, this is at line 2826 in file 'include/import.inc.php').

      In the next refbase version, you'll be able to specify your CrossRef login credentials in file 'initialize/ini.inc.php'.

      HTH, Matthias
