wandora failure on ris file

Postby ykarant » Fri Nov 30, 2018 7:09 am

Wait while seeking files with metadata!
Extracting from /home/ykarant/Documents/10.1038%2Fs41559-018-0735-8.ris
Starting RIS extract
Invalid URI syntax for web link: java.net.URISyntaxException: Illegal character in path at index 41: https://doi.org/10.1038/s41559-018-0735-8 10.1038/s41559-018-0735-8
Extracting Multiple episodes of interbreeding between Neanderthal and modern humans

Above is the diagnostic message. However, when I actually read in a plain text editor the .ris file, I could extract the field that I needed (DOI). What went wrong above?

Hello Ykarant

I recall that URIs can't contain space characters (by the URI specification). Looking at the diagnostic message in your post, the DOI URI appears to have at least one space character between parts ...018-0735-8 and 10.1038.... To perform successful RIS extraction, you should edit the RIS file and replace the space character with encoded space character code %20.

Looking at the DOI URI closer reveals it repeats part '10.1038/s41559-018-0735-8' twice. Is this intentional?

Kind Regards,
