Inera Inc. launches eXtyles STS, a Word-to-XML solution for standards publishers
- 18 Jan 2018

Inera Inc., a provider of editorial and XML software for scholarly and technical publishers, has announced the release of eXtyles STS, the newest member of the widely-used eXtyles product family. eXtyles STS supports NISO's latest standard, NISO STS, officially known as ANSI/NISO Z39.102-2017. Inera's eXtyles STS solution allows standards publishers to adopt this new 'standard for standards' while allowing their committees to continue drafting documents in Microsoft Word.

eXtyles STS provides tools for quick and accurate structuring, editing, and conversion of standards content from Word to high-quality XML, with no in-house XML expertise required. Designed to offer an immediate, cost-effective solution for standards organisations who need to produce NISO STS XML, this comprehensive eXtyles configuration will meet the needs of most organisations that publish standards and can be further customised, if necessary, to accommodate unique publishing requirements.

The eXtyles STS XML conversion solution also facilitates the process of editing standards in Word with sophisticated editorial features. Such features include a unique user-friendly interface for applying Word styles from an integrated document template and advanced tools to identify in-line references to standards and ensure that normative references are properly cited in the text.

The publication of standards is a complex process involving committee authorship, multiple rounds of revision, and multi-format production. All eXtyles STS processes operate within the familiar Word environment, and the valid NISO STS XML created from Word can be used as a single source for multi-format standards publishing.

The University of the Andes (Colombia) unveils trilingual OA journal site on Atypon's Literatum online publishing platform
- 18 Jan 2018

The Universidad de los Andes (University of the Andes) in Colombia, a private research institution and one of the top universities in South America, has launched a new site for all of its journals on Literatum, Atypon's online publishing platform. The trilingual site offers researchers content in Spanish, Portuguese, and English, with interfaces available in Spanish and English. The Literatum platform natively supports content in any language.

Designed by Atypon, the new mobile-optimised site includes individually branded sections for each journal, with related editorial content at the article level. Multimedia such as videos and reader surveys with real-time results are enhancing users' experience.

For the first time, the University can document content usage across all journals. And as of November 2017, 75% of site visits were resulting in a full text download. Literatum's visualised reporting informs the editorial teams which articles are most accessed and downloaded, by journal, year of publication and the selected reading format, allowing them to closely monitor content usage.

An integrated dual-search functionality allows users to search the entire corpus of ten OA journals, or a single journal, making it fast and simple for researchers to find the content that they need. The new journal site cross-promotes relevant titles from, and links to, the University's book catalogue. Additionally, the new Author Services section provides a portal for authors to both prepare and submit their articles. The site includes the entire published backfile of each journal, starting from 1979.
