XML for content that’s anything but standard
If your organization publishes books, you know that your content is more varied, complex, and unpredictable than the typical journal article. You also have more formats and markets to worry about, including print, PDF, EPUB, course adoptions, libraries, online hosting platforms, bookstores, and online retailers. How do you create a standardized XML workflow for this kind of content without sacrificing the unique needs of each book?
The first step is choosing the right DTD for the job. The Book Interchange Tag Suite (BITS) DTD, part of the JATS family, is purpose-built for scholarly book publishing and adaptable to fit your content. It’s also an emerging de facto standard for book content.
Next, choose eXtyles! We’ll personalize your eXtyles Custom implementation to support all your publications and workflows and to ensure that your BITS XML export meets your multi-format publishing needs.
