    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
