Are they namespaced schema conforming EAD or are they based on the DTD ?
I don’t think I’ve ever seen a completely empty import log — that makes me think it isn’t recognizing it as EAD.
( And not being schema conforming is my first guess at a reason. )
1. Check the the XML is well formed. I use xmllint or Oxygen Editor. ( or google for online validators )
2. Validate against the EAD schema. Again, I use xmllint or Oxygen.
get a copy from: http://www.loc.gov/ead/eadschema.html
3. Try validating against the schematron rules at: https://github.com/fordmadox/schematrons
This may be a bit more difficult to manage. We had some discussion at the NYU workshop about
setting this up as a supported service, so people don’t have to deal with figuring out how to run
Schematron, but I haven’t had a change to look at this. But if you get this far, ask and we’ll
figure out how to help.
4. You can also run the EADConverted from IRB console and output the JSON model.
But if there’s nothing in the log file, I doubt you’re getting that far in the import.

I've been tasked with figuring out why a simple EAD file fails to be imported into ArchivesSpace. I suspect it's an error with the XML file's formatting, such as a missing tag, but I don't know enough about the file type to verify it by eye. I thought I'd ask if there's any tool archivists use to verify that their EAD files are correct. When imported into ArchivesSpace, the job fails and there is an empty error log; I don't have anything else to go on, unfortunately.
