Trouble With Oxford University Press Feeds

Recommended Posts

I have used RSS to keep up with academic journals for many years. Fairly recently my feeds for all journals published by Oxford University Press have returned errors and fail to update.

They had been returning the following error:

cURL error 56: SSL read: errno -5961

although as of today the error for all OUP feeds is:

cURL error 56: SSL read: error:00000000:lib(0):func(0):reason(0), errno 104

Here are links to a few of the feeds:

https://academic.oup.com/rss/site_5139/3001.xml

https://academic.oup.com/rss/site_5566/3422.xml

https://academic.oup.com/rss/site_5127/3091.xml

Is there some trouble on the publishers end that they need to resolve?

Thanks for the help

Seth

Unfortunately the feeds from this source have too many issues and can't be parsed by our fetching servers.
You can see more about the first one here - http://www.feedvalidator.org/check.cgi?url=https%3A%2F%2Facademic.oup.com%2Frss%2Fsite_5139%2F3001.xml

I suppose that there is something with the publishers. 

Here is the response, when we try to fetch the https://academic.oup.com/rss/site_5139/3001.xml
