News, Events, and Industry Updates for the Scholarly Publishing Community





CrossRef linking improvement

CrossRef has implemented a fix that improves the results of eXtyles CrossRef linking of non-journal references. Previously CrossRef linking would sometimes return the DOI of a journal article that was later published as a book chapter, when the citation in the document is to the book chapter. This linking error would occur when only the journal article, and not the book chapter, had been deposited at CrossRef. It is now much less likely that eXtyles will insert a DOI link to a journal article for a non-journal reference that is substantially the same publication. Read More


eXtyles and ORCID

ORCID is “an open, non-profit, community-based effort to provide a registry of unique researcher identifiers and a transparent method of linking research activities and outputs to these identifiers” (http://about.orcid.org/). Many partners in the scholarly research endeavor have been quick to show support for the initiative, including individual researchers, research organizations, research funders, professional and learned societies, publishers, and abstracting and indexing organizations.  Read More


Inera releases the eXtyles NCBI Linking module

NCBI Linking identifies accession numbers and IDs in Word documents and queries them against NCBI databases such as GenBank, PDB, Swiss-Prot, 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. Read More


eXtyles enables insertion of abstracts by PubMed Reference Correction

The eXtyles PubMed Reference Correction module can now be configured to insert abstracts after references that link to PubMed. If the customer prefers, these abstracts can be set to toggle between hidden and visible text in Word, and they can be supported as annotations to references when exported to NLM DTD XML. Read More


eXtyles implements CrossRef retraction warnings

The CrossRef Linking and Reference Correction tools now provide a warning if a reference has a CrossMark record that indicates it has been “retracted,” “withdrawn,” or “removed.”  Read More


New eXtyles Compare to Baseline option

The eXtyles Compare to Baseline dialog now has a radio button selection to allow comparison by word (the default behavior) or by character. This option is available in eXtyles only when running in Word 2007 and later. Read More


Inera releases the eXtyles Metadata Export and Upload modules

eXtyles Metadata Export and Upload Modules are now available for one-button metadata creation and deposit to PubMed and CrossRef. These modules, which appear in eXtyles as additional export filter options, convert eXtyled Word files (via NLM DTD XML) to either PubMed or CrossRef metadata XML. The resulting XML can be automatically uploaded to the respective site(s). For small to medium-sized publishers in particular, these modules provide an easy way to complete important parts of an online publication workflow. Read More


Inera releases the eXtyles NamesforLife Linking module

The eXtyles NamesforLife (N4L) Linking module is now available. N4L Linking 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. Read More
