The eXtyles Document Information dialog captures the document metadata. For most publishers, this dialog is customized to include metadata fields relevant to their content (e.g., volume and issue numbers for journal publishers, ISBNs for book publishers, etc.). For customers who use eXtyles as an XML solution, this metadata is included in the exported XML.
The eXtyles Cleanup feature removes extraneous formatting from Word documents, from simple errors, such as multiple spaces, to more complex issues, such as fielded text or character styles, which can cause problems during the editorial and composition stages.
The eXtyles Paragraph Styling palette is a sophisticated tool for applying structure to Word documents. Styles on the palette are arranged contextually, according to where they appear in your content, and can be applied with the mouse or the keyboard. Certain document elements such as bibliographic references and regular body paragraphs are automatically identified and styled.
Auto-Redact is a large library of find-and-replace rules that can be configured to output any editorial style. Preferred spelling, abbreviation, usage, and formatting of common terms can be enforced with a single mouse click. Inera’s library includes over 2000 rules; custom rules can also be created, and customers can be trained to write their own.
Using heuristic processing, eXtyles is able to identify the elements of a journal reference in a Word file — author surname, author initial, title, year, and so on — and then rearrange these elements according to a preferred editorial style. This automatic copyediting is accomplished regardless of the style (or lack thereof) used by the author. Semantic identification of reference elements also enables the automatic granular tagging of references during the eXtyles XML export.
The eXtyles Book Reference Processing module extends the automatic copyediting and tagging of bibliographic references — initially developed for references to journals — to references to books and book chapters.
Duplicate Reference Checking warns users when two references with identical or near-identical content appear in a single reference list. It catches duplicates even when the formatting or order of elements in the two references differs, and it is especially useful for review articles with hundreds of references.
PubMed Reference Checking validates references against the online PubMed database, inserts a link at the end of each reference to its corresponding PubMed entry, and provides feedback on the accuracy of certain reference elements. This module is particularly useful to life science publishers.
PubMed Reference Correction extends the PubMed Reference Checking tool by correcting missing or erroneous elements in a reference in Word with data retrieved from PubMed. This tool also provides warnings when significant discrepancies between the author-submitted reference and the PubMed record are found. This module is particularly useful to life science publishers.
CrossRef Reference Checking validates references against the online CrossRef database, inserts a DOI at the end of each linked reference, and provides feedback on the accuracy of certain reference elements. The CrossRef database covers a broad range of disciplines and publication types.
CrossRef Reference Correction extends the CrossRef Reference Checking tool by correcting missing or erroneous elements in a reference in Word with data retrieved from CrossRef. This tool also provides warnings when significant discrepancies between the author-submitted reference and the CrossRef record are found.
Reference Sorting sorts Harvard-style (unnumbered) reference lists alphabetically and chronologically according to one of two standard sorting styles.
Harvard-to-Vancouver Citation Conversion transforms name-date (e.g., Smith, 2000) in-text reference citations to a preferred numbered citation style and numbers and reorders the corresponding references.
Convert/Clean Numbered Citations can convert one numbered (Vancouver) reference citation style to another (e.g., numbers in square brackets to superscript numbers); it also ensures that the punctuation and formatting of numbered citations conforms to the publisher’s style.
Citation Matching ensures that each bibliographic reference is cited in the document at least once and that each citation has a matching reference; it also checks callouts to objects (e.g., figure legends, tables, boxes, etc.).
Citation/Callout Order Checking warns the user if numbered reference citations are out of order; it also checks that objects such as figures and tables are cited sequentially.
Citation Renumbering renumbers out-of-order reference citations and their corresponding references according to the editorial style specified by the publisher.
URL Checking confirms that hyperlinks in a Word document resolve to a web page and provides warnings when URLs redirect or return an error message.
NCBI Linking identifies accession numbers and IDs in Word documents and queries them against NCBI databases such as GenBank, PDB, SwissProt, and so forth. Matched items are linked to their corresponding records on the NCBI website, and Word comments are inserted if an item has been changed, replaced, or removed. Appropriate markup can be exported to XML.
Footnote Renumbering automatically renumbers out-of-sequence Word footnotes that have been flattened to plain text by eXtyles on Document Activation. It is useful for book and other footnote-heavy content.
Metadata Export and Upload converts NLM DTD XML to either PubMed or CrossRef metadata XML and automatically deposits it. This feature requires an NLM DTD export filter.
All configurations of eXtyles include a well-formed XML export filter at no additional cost. This filter produces a tagged file that can be used as an input to typesetting, or customers can create scripts to transform it into valid XML. This well-formed XML is not created according to any DTD.
Inera is a co-author of the NLM DTD, the latest versions of which are now called JATS (for journal content) and BITS (for book content); JATS has been adopted as a NISO standard. eXtyles can be used to create full-text NLM DTD XML directly from Word with the click of a mouse and with no in-house XML expertise required.
Inera has configured XML export filters for a number of DTDs and schemas, both standard and proprietary. eXtyles can be used to create full-text, valid XML directly from Word with the click of a mouse and with no in-house XML expertise required.
NamesforLife (N4L) automatically identifies biological names in Word documents (currently, validly published names of Bacteria and Archaea at all ranks, from domain to subspecies, as well as names for which a published genome exists; other terminologies are in the works) and provides DOI-based links to the N4L service.
Conference Reference Parsing identifies and applies character styles/tags to elements of conference proceeding references; it also identifies titles in other non-journal, non-book references. Conference Reference Parsing enables automated linking of conference proceeding and other non-journal, non-book references to CrossRef. It does not copyedit such references to a preferred editorial style.
