What Happens to All those Journal Titles?

There cannot be many eXtyles users who have never encountered this message – “eXtyles does not recognize the journal XYZ (in reference ABC). If this is a valid journal title, please send this reference to journals@inera.com and we will add it to the eXtyles journal database.” Many Edifix users will have seen a similar message.

eXtyles ORCID Integration Suite

We are excited to announce that Inera has expanded support for ORCID in the eXtyles workflow! In addition to automatic XML conversions for manually entered ORCIDs (see our previous post), the eXtyles feature set welcomes a new set of modules: the eXtyles ORCID Integration Suite. Read More


eXtyles New Features Highlighted at XUG 2015

eXtyles adds support for URLs in book references

eXtyles supports bibliographic references to journal articles that include web addresses, but until recently all other references with URLs were tagged as and were not fully processed. Support has now been added to accurately tag and (in configurations with eXtyles Book Reference Processing) fully process references to books or book chapters that include URLs: Read More

eXtyles enables protection of text in single quotation marks

For eXtyles customers who use the Auto-Redact feature, text that falls within double quotation marks has always been "protected" during this process, so that Auto-Redact rules will not make changes to direct quotes. Similar protection of text that falls within single quotation marks presents more of a challenge, since single quotes can be difficult for eXtyles to distinguish from apostrophes.

Inera has recently created rules to apply protection to quoted text in single quotes during Auto-Redact. These rules are not foolproof - for instance, in some cases when a quotation ends with the letter "s" and the surrounding text and formatting are ambiguous, it is difficult for eXtyles to distinguish a quotation from a plural possessive. However, the rules will successfully protect single-quoted material in the vast majority of cases.

If you are interested in implementing these rules, please contact IneraRead More


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


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
