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 User Group Meeting 2013

The 9th Annual eXtyles User Group Meeting (XUG) was held at the Sheraton Commander in Cambridge, MA, on November 14 and 15, 2013. Customers and partners from North America, Europe, and Asia joined the Inera team to discuss eXtyles, industry standards, and other current topics in electronic publishing. Read More

ORCID support has been added to the eXtyles XML export. If ORCID(s) are included in the author line of a manuscript in this form: 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


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
