Plain spelling mistakes, like Auhtor-Name:
, Title :
(note the extra space between "Title" and ":") happen. Using preset templates
Use of inexistent items
Our scripts will stumble on items that are unknown to them. For example,
does not exist, use File-URL:
the ReDIF documentation
complete list of available items.
Line starts with inappropriate item
This can happen accidentally, for example with a title or an abstract, when by chance a line starts with a word immediately followed by a colon (":"). This is then interpreted as a tag header. The solution is to let a space precede this word.
Bad use of clusters
Information about an author has to be in one single cluster, before starting
with the co-author. the same applies to various other clusters, like File-*
, etc. All clusters have to start with the *-Name:
, except for File-*
that starts with File-URL:
Problems with handles
Each entry must have a handle that is unique. Each handle must contain the
proper archive code (3 letters) and the proper series code (6 characters).
For example, for a paper it would be RePEc:cre:crefwp:75
File-URL: wraps in the address
should not wrap in the middle of the address, no browser can understand that.
The address can be put on a separate line, though, as long as it starts with a space.
Series handles do not match
The handle for each series is specified in aaaseri.rdf
and should have 6 characters
The items of this series should be located in a directory with the same 6 character name.
Each item handle should contain the same 6 character code.
