ris2xml (v4.15) converts the full series title (T3) incorrectly for RIS BOOK

    Hi,

    while the previous example used a book chapter (CHAP), this example here uses a BOOK and this exhibits another problem with ris2xml conversion of series info.

    This RIS record:

    TY  - BOOK
    ED  - Lizotte, M. P.
    ED  - Arrigo, K. R.
    PY  - 1998//
    TI  - Antarctic sea ice: Biological processes, interactions and variability
    T2  - Antarct Res Ser
    T3  - Antarctic Research Series
    VL  - 73
    PB  - American Geophysical Union
    CY  - Washington, DC
    SN  - 0066-4634
    SN  - 0-87590-901-9
    ID  - Lizotte+Arrigo1998Antarctic
    ER  -
    

    also yields incorrect MODS XML output when converted with ris2xml (v4.15). But this time, it outputs:

    <mods ID="Lizotte+Arrigo1998Antarctic">
    [...]
        <relatedItem type="host">
            <titleInfo>
                <title/>
            </titleInfo>
            <titleInfo type="abbreviated">
                <title>Antarct Res Ser</title>
            </titleInfo>
            <relatedItem type="host">
                <titleInfo>
                    <title>Antarctic Research Series</title>
                </titleInfo>
            </relatedItem>
        </relatedItem>
    [...]
    </mods>
    

    while it should instead output:

    <mods ID="Lizotte+Arrigo1998Antarctic">
    [...]
        <relatedItem type="host">
            <titleInfo>
                <title>Antarctic Research Series</title>
            </titleInfo>
            <titleInfo type="abbreviated">
                <title>Antarct Res Ser</title>
            </titleInfo>
        </relatedItem>
    [...]
    </mods>
    

    I.e., the full series title ("Antarctic Research Series") should be contained in the
    first <relatedItem type="host"> block, and the second one should not exist.

    Thanks,
    Matthias

    In addition to the above BOOK example, this example:

    TY  - BOOK
    ED  - D'yakonov, A. M.
    A3  - Strelkov, A. A.
    PY  - 1954//
    TI  - Ophiuroids of the USSR seas
    T3  - Keys to the Fauna of the USSR
    VL  - 55
    PB  - Zoological Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR
    CY  - Moscow
    ID  - Dyakonov1954Ophiuroids
    ER  -
    

    shows that series editors given in a RIS A3 field are also incorrectly converted with ris2xml (v4.15). The current output is:

    <mods ID="Dyakonov1954Ophiuroids">
    [...]
        <relatedItem type="host">
            <titleInfo>
                <title/>
            </titleInfo>
            <relatedItem type="host">
                <titleInfo>
                    <title>Keys to the Fauna of the USSR</title>
                </titleInfo>
                <name type="personal">
                    <namePart type="given">A</namePart>
                    <namePart type="given">A</namePart>
                    <namePart type="family">Strelkov</namePart>
                    <role>
                        <roleTerm authority="marcrelator" type="text">author</roleTerm>
                    </role>
                </name>
            </relatedItem>
        </relatedItem>
    [...]
    </mods>
    

    while it should instead output:

    <mods ID="Dyakonov1954Ophiuroids">
    [...]
        <relatedItem type="host">
            <titleInfo>
                <title>Keys to the Fauna of the USSR</title>
            </titleInfo>
            <name type="personal">
                <namePart type="given">A</namePart>
                <namePart type="given">A</namePart>
                <namePart type="family">Strelkov</namePart>
                <role>
                    <roleTerm authority="marcrelator" type="text">author</roleTerm>
                </role>
            </name>
        </relatedItem>
    [...]
    </mods>
    

    I.e., the series editor as well as the full series title should be contained in the
    first <relatedItem type="host"> block, and the second one should not exist.

    Thanks,
    Matthias

    Also easily fixed and in my local sources. Will be in 4.16.

    Shouldn't the roleTerm for Strelkov, A. A. be editor and not author as well?

     
  • Matthias Steffens

    Thanks for the quick fix, and yes, the roleTerm of the series editor should be "editor", this was a typo, sorry...

    Version 4.16 (just released) should fix this. Thanks again.
