      Hi Matt,

      it's correct that the 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:

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

      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/').

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

      HTH, Matthias
