Import Files

From EPrints Documentation
Jump to: navigation, search

Here is a minimalist XML file to import local files into EPrints (provided by John Salter):

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='utf-8'?>
<eprints xmlns=''>

Note that this also set the title and the creators. You can override the "userid" when importing with the bin/import script (run it with "--help" to see how to do this).

This will put the eprint object straight into the live repository ("<eprint_status>archive</eprint_status>") - You may wish to place them into the user area ("<eprint_status>inbox</eprint_status>") or into the editorial review ("<eprint_status>buffer</eprint_status>") instead.
