About Inera

Inera is widely recognized as a global leader in publishing technology. Since 1992, Inera’s seasoned team of publishing and software professionals have pooled a unique set of skills to transform publishing workflows.

We develop and license the eXtyles family of Word-based editorial and XML tools and the Edifix online bibliographic reference solution. eXtyles and Edifix allow their users to automate the most time-consuming aspects of document publication. Publishers of scholarly journals and books, standards, and government documents worldwide rely on these software solutions to drive modern electronic and print publication workflows.

Our mission extends beyond world-class software. We actively engage in standards development (NLM/JATS/BITS DTDs), cross-publisher initiatives (CrossRef), and board membership in key organizations (NISO).

Our holistic approach, providing both great software and industry leadership, delivers Inera’s customers and partners unparalleled results.
