Hi - I am seeing a few cases where I do an API works query that returns no results for a DOI that does resolve to a URL.
I tried to post the actual URLs but it is not allowing any links in the post.
DOIs pattern are: 10.1353/sub.0.0003, 10.1353/ajh.2006.0019
This is an extremely rare occurrence (50 out of 100,000+) but I want to make sure I am not doing something wrong. Is there something going on here that I am not accounting for?
Hi @ajt_muse ,
Thanks for flagging these for us.
I see both of those example DOIs in our APIs:
REST API: https://email@example.com
XML API: https://firstname.lastname@example.org&format=unixsd&doi=10.1353/sub.0.0003
XML API: https://email@example.com&format=unixsd&doi=10.1353/ajh.2006.0019
REST API: This DOI has been aliased to another DOI. Because of that, we have hidden it from being retrieved. We’re working on a better way of communicating this via the REST API response for aliased DOIs, but that’s the reason you’re receiving a ‘resource not found’ message for this DOI in the REST API.
The result in the XML API confirms that the DOI has indeed been aliased to its primary DOI:
Please let me know if you have any additional questions,
I was assuming it was because of an Alias situation.
I am going to switch my process to use the XML query instead of the REST API.
I agree with that switch. Also, I updated your account in the forum so you can post links going forward.
